|Mee Kish and John Muir|
John Muir, a regular at the Rossford site, enjoys the social aspect of the Senior Center.
“I like meeting new people, and coming here I get to meet new people quite often,” Muir said.
Active in the Toledo Swiss Singers, Muir enjoys playing cards and “being silly” at the site.
Muir joined in on the fun on a cold afternoon in February as the Rossford site celebrated the Oscars by having their own version, “The Roscars.”

“The Roscars,” now a yearly tradition at the Rossford site, allow the Senior Center participants to vote for their peers in five categories, including: Best Dressed Male, Best Dressed Female, Most Kindhearted, Best Sense of Humor, and the Hot Tamale Award.
Each winner receives a custom award and recognition from their peers.
Muir acted as the escort, helping those who won up to the microphone to accept their award.
When the Rossford Area Seniors aren’t celebrating “The Roscars,” they are learning new things, going on trips, enjoying meals together, and staying active.
Being located inside the Rossford Recreation Center offers unique opportunities to the Senior Center participants.
Recreational opportunities are available to those interested, including Pickleball – a low-impact sport combining elements of badminton, tennis, and table tennis that is growing in popularity.
The Rossford Area Senior Center is located at 400 Dixie Highway and is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. For more information on the site and programs and services offered, contact Mary Tebbe at (419) 666-8494.
