Seniors from across Ottawa County donned their green garb for a Senior Pot `O Gold Game Day and Potluck March 15 at Riverview Healthcare Campus in Oak Harbor.

It didn’t matter whether their favorite pastime was pinochle, dominoes, Rack-O or the dice game, seniors were sure to have a “lucky day.” A rousing game of Bingo also gave the seniors the opportunity to win prizes donated by Ottawa County Senior Centers and Guiding Hands Home Care Services.

The highlight of the day was the 50/50 raffle with proceeds benefiting the Ottawa County Senior Levy committee.
