The month of July is shaping up to be a busy one for the senior citizens of Fulton County.
The parking lot of the Wauseon Senior Center will host its second annual Classic Vehicle Cruise In on July 10. Taking place from 9:30 A.M. to 1:30 P.M., anyone owning a restored antique vehicle is invited to come and show it off. Those participating in the event are allowed to arrive as early as 8:00 A.M. to set up. Ice cream and lunch items will be available, though reservations for the latter will need to be made with the senior center’s receptionist, Karen Schroeder. Registration for the Cruise in is being handled by Beth Ricker Flory, who can be reached at 419-337-9299.
July 16 will mark the beginning of Tai Chi courses offered in the gymnasium of the Wauseon building. Dubbed Tai Chi: Moving for Better Balance, the class will be taught by Robert Sullivan, who works for the Area Office of Aging in Northwest Ohio. Held weekly on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00 A.M. to 11:30 A.M., those enrolled may look forward to feeling stronger, improving balance, increasing flexibility, and gaining confidence. Those who complete the course will be awarded certificates of completion. Those interested should contact Ricker-Flory to register.
A trip to Spangler Candy Company, centered in Bryan, is scheduled to leave the Wauseon site at 9:00 A.M. on July 17. The journey will include a thirty minute trolley tour of the Spangler Candy factory, a stop in the facility’s museum, and lunch provided courtesy of the Bryan Senior Center. Said lunch will consist of soup and a salad bar, as well as the standard items on the establishment’s menu that day. The cost of the package is $10, all-inclusive, and those hoping to attend will need to register with Ricker-Flory by July 3.
The Toledo Museum of Art will also be a location in which Fulton County seniors may plan to visit. The senior center has planned a trip to the museum on July 31, with transportation leaving the Wauseon site at 9:00 A.M. A fee of $3 is required from those planning to make the trek to the Lucas County institution, and money for lunch will be needed for attendees. Ricker-Flory is organizing reservations.
It should also be noted that all Fulton County sites will be closed on July 3 in observance of Independence Day.
