Senior edition


EATON — The Thursday Night Dance is held every Thursday from 5-8 p.m. at The Grange at 501 Nation Avenue, Eaton. On Sept. 15, the themed attire for this dance is “Old Folks!’ Yes, come dressed like an “Old Folk,” maybe you have a favorite older person that you admire, a character in a book or movie, or maybe you come dressed like an older version of yourself. Be creative and come strut your stuff on the dance floor! This dance is sponsored by Greenbriar.

The Silvertones, a local band from Camden, will provide an enjoyable evening of classic rock & roll and country music for your listening and dancing pleasure. The dance features delicious food, with a $1 menu, a 50/50 drawing, and door prizes. Admission is $3 per individual, $5 per couple. If you haven’t been to a dance yet, it is worth attending!

Bingo: Friday, Sept. 16, at 2 p.m. at The Grange, and thanks to our sponsors Genesis.

Matter of Balance Preview Class: In honor of National Fall Prevention Awareness Day we are offering a Matter of Balance Preview Class on Friday, Sept. 23, at 1:30 p.m. at PCCOA. If you are concerned about falling, interested in improving balance, flexibility and strength, and/or you have fallen in the past, attend this Matter of Balance Preview class on Sept. 23, to learn more about regaining your balance. According to Steady U of Ohio, ‘Falls are not a normal part of aging, most falls can be prevented. A person’s risk for falls goes down the minute he or she stops being afraid of falling. Falls are the leading cause of injury-related hospitalization and deaths among Ohioans aged 65 and older.’ If you are interested yet unable to attend this class, call to inquire about the next class 937-456-4947.

Beginning Sept. 12, and for the remainder of the week, all activities will be held at The Grange, 501 Nation Ave, Eaton. Decade’s Diner will be open during this time. We are gladly getting new carpet at the PCCOA on Monday, Sept. 12, thank you for your patience and understanding. Stay tuned to our progress via our Facebook Page or give us a call at 937-456-4947.
