CELEBRATING WITH 500 SENIORS AT THE FAIR
By: Sherii Sherban, Publisher
Senior Day at the Calhoun County Fair is all about making it a special day for area seniors. Nearly 500 came to enjoy the day with us. Many thanks to all that helped to make this a memorable day under the big top for all who attended. It would not have been as amazing without you!
Our day began with coffee and donuts. We enjoyed music and singing, lots of bingo, lunch, ice cream, and the announcement of the senior court, including the 2018 senior king and queen. The king and queen received sashes and flowers as part of this special achievement. Winners were identified based on being the oldest man and woman at the fair on Senior Day.
Congratulations to our Senior King Jimmy Hall (96) and our Senior Queen Ellen Goodwill (111). Ellen has worn the sash home for several years in a row now. Wow.
Many hands make light work, and we could not have done it without the many volunteers joining the event spon- sors Senior Times and Calhoun County Senior Services. Additional sponsors CareWell Services SW, Walgreens, Sweetwater Donuts, and Airway Oxygen joined us to help make sure everyone was fed and well-hydrated.
Thank you to all who came to volunteer and make
the day extra special including Senior Times and Scene Magazine staff, Senior Services staff and Senior Millage Allocation Committee members. Individuals representing many local facilities and organizations included BC Hearing, Walgreens, CareWell Services, Ganton Senior Communities, Maplewood of Marshall, the Oaks, NorthPointe Woods, Village of Mill Creek, Senior Health Partners, Chalgian & Tripp, Senior Services of West Michigan, Airway Oxygen, Calhoun County Veterans’ Affairs Office, Great Lakes Home Care, Brookdale, CentraCare, Miles for Memories, David Gilbert, Tony Goodman, and of course Minnie Pearl, and so many more!
Sending an extra thank you to our staff at Senior Times and Scene Magazine. They, along with Calhoun County Senior Services staff, worked really hard on planning this year’s event! You rock Patricia Fosdick, Sally Goss, Cyd Deane, Christyn McCleary, and Connie Skidmore. Thank you leaps and bounds for all you do every day!
