Chris and Ellen Dalton hosted the fifteenth Bowling Green State University Retirees Association (BGSURA) cocktail party, an event that has become popular through the years, on Feb. 25.  
The Daltons had renovated their newly purchased Scott Boulevard home for a year before moving in, bringing brightness and comfort to it including such touches as wooden floors and embroidered dining room chairs.
The first such cocktail party took place at the home of Roger and Betty Jean Anderson on Feb. 22, 2008 and was co-hosted by Wally and Diane Pretzer.  Since then, Wally Pretzer, who was BGSURA's activities chairman at the time, instituted the arrangement by which the party attendees bring beverages for themselves and appetizers to share.  The Andersons hosted a second time under this new arrangement.

Senior center hosts cholesterol screening PDF Print E-mail

The Wood County Committee On Aging (WCCOA) hosted its most recent cholesterol screening last Friday at the senior center in Bowling Green.
The funds for the supplies of the screening such as needles to draw a patient's blood, processing scanner and utensils to check blood pressure are provided from the amount of money the WCCOA receives from its patients.
Director of Social Services Lisa Myers said funding the cholesterol screenings is not an issue because not only do the payments from the patients contribute toward the service it hosts, but the senior center provides some funding as well. They look back to previous years to see how many tools they should have available.
"We only order the supplies a month before the clinic," Myers said. "We recently have been trying to promote it and now that we do it's been helping out."
