The Ottawa County Senior Fair Board, along with Ottawa County Senior Resources, will once again play host to “Senior Citizen’s Day at the Ottawa County Fair” on Wednesday, July 17. Anyone 60 years of age or older will receive free admission to the fair and are welcomed to join the Senior Day activities at Building B-3 Barn on the fairgrounds. This year’s events will include lunchtime entertainment from “Just Us Two’, sponsored by Americare and Dave Ninke.
There will also be a continental breakfast sponsored by Neidecker, LeVeck and Crosser Funeral Homes and Magruder Hospital and an ice cream social sponsored by Riverview Healthcare Campus. Blood Pressure checks will be conducted by the Ottawa County Health Department. Magruder Hospital will also be available for speech therapy screenings. Other activities include Bingo, sponsored by Senior Helpers and ADT, and Wagon Rides around the fairgrounds conducted by the Senior Fair Board. Transportation to and from the parking lots will also be available.
With the help of Walker Funeral Homes, seniors can purchase a lunch ticket good for a box lunch consisting of a hoagie, chips, fruit and a cookie. Home Instead Senior Care is providing the bottled water, which will be available for seniors along with their lunch. Lunch tickets are $2 each and are available at all senior centers and the main office of Senior Resources. Only 250 lunch tickets will be available. 100% of the proceeds from the lunch tickets benefit the Ottawa County Senior Levy Committee. Tickets must be purchased prior to Senior Day.
