The Wood County Committee on Aging, Inc., will have extended hours and days of service at the Wood County Senior Center in Bowling Green today through Saturday due to the expected high heat and humidity.
Hours of service will be 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. today through Saturday. Regular programs and services will be maintained.
Additional hours are scheduled for Friday evening, until 7, and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. with lunch offered from noon to 1 p.m. A $2 donation is suggested for those 60 and over. There is a $5 charge for those under age 60. Dinner also will be available. A $4 donation is suggested for those 60 and over. There is a $7 dinner charge for those under age 60.
This service is targeted to the older adults and those who might not have adequate cooling in their homes. Those in need of relief from the heat are encouraged to drop in. Games, movies, books and newspapers will be available.
To stay safe in the extreme heat, experts recommend rescheduling strenuous outdoor work to early morning or evening. Those who must work outside are advised to take frequent breaks and drink water frequently, even when not thirsty. Remember to check on elderly friends and neighbors, especially those without air conditioning.
Reservations are needed for evening meals for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday (by 2 p.m. the date of the reservation) and for the Saturday meals. Call (419) 353-5661 or 1-800-367-4935 for reservations.
