Senior Forum Sessions to Feature Assistance Dogs, a Soprano and Sheridan Cave
The University of Findlay’s Senior Forum has several interesting topics on tap for this Wednesday.
10:15-11:30 a.m.: Jenny Barlos of the Ability Center of Greater Toledo will speak about how assistance dogs enable independent living. Barlos is the client services director for Assistance Dogs for Achieving Independence, which is an program that the center takes part in. Their dogs are used in Findlay City Schools to assist the physically handicapped, with very little cost to the recipient. Barlos will be accompanied by a canine helper.
12:15-1:15 p.m.: Dale Stansbery, an amateur archeologist, will talk about Sheridan Cave, a noted Ice Age site near Vanlue. Bones of animals have been recovered there, including those of four extinct species.
1:30-2:30 p.m.: Findlay native and soprano Celia Stockton, music director at St. Andrew’s United Methodist Church, will perform Broadway favorites.
Senior Forum is a flexible learning experience for those age 50 and older. Expert instructors from the UF campus and greater community provide information on a wide variety of subjects. Participants can attend as many or as few sessions as they wish. The talks and performances are held in UF’s Alumni Memorial Union located on Frazer Street.
The program is co-sponsored by The University of Findlay and the Hancock County Agency on Aging.
