Ottawa County Senior Centers and Robinson Walker Funeral Homes held the first-ever Valentine’s Day Essay Contest featuring this year’s theme, “The Worst Date Ever.” The contest was a chance for seniors to re-connect with fond memories of their younger days.
A total of eight essays were submitted representing all corners of the county. Prizes are a $100 gift card for first place, $50 gift card for second and $25 gift card for third.
This year’s winners include: first place — Anne Parker of Put-in-Bay, second place — Doris Van Allen of Danbury and third place — Eileen Glesser, Genoa. The winning stories will be published in the April edition of the “Senior Moments” newsletter which can be found on the Senior Resources website.
Robinson Walker Funeral Homes will be delivering the prizes to the winners at their home Senior Centers. Congratulations to all our winners. With the success of this contest, Ottawa County Senior Resources and Robinson Walker Funeral Homes hope to make this an annual event.
