Two hundred people enjoyed food, fellowship and entertainment Friday at Upper Sandusky’s annual Senior Citizens Day program at John Stewart United Methodist Church.
“We had a really good dinner and I enjoyed visiting with all my friends,” Marilyn Titus said.
The menu included ham, green beans and cheesy potatoes, which was provided free to guests courtesy of A & A Groceries, Wyandot County Home Health, Koehler Drug and Hospice of Wyandot County. Dessert was cupcakes and ice cream provided by Wyandot County Skilled Nursing and Rehabilitation Center and Bridge Home Health and Hospice. Discount Drug Mart provided coffee and punch.
“The food was excellent,” Helen Jo Smalley said.
Entertainment was provided by the Fairhaven Community Handbell Choir.
“That was beautiful,” Wyandot County Council on Aging Executive Director Connie Geissinger said about the performance. “I couldn’t decide whether to cry or listen.”
Wyandot Memorial Hospital provided the decorations and table covers. Door prizes were donated by local artist Dianna Swartz.
“As I travel around the district and I travel the state, I tell people how special Wyandot County is,” State Rep. Jeff McClain (R-Upper Sandusky) said to the crowd. “It is a jewel that has been handed to you by your ancestors and you have nurtured and cared for it and it’s a really special place. I want to thank you all for that.”
Wyandot County Commissioner Joyce Morehart also was in attendance, along with Upper Sandusky Mayor Scott Washburn.
“I want to thank everybody for coming and I wish you all the best health in the world,” Morehart said.
