to offer school-age children and their families, but
one of Recreation Director Krystin Thibodeau's goals
was to have more events for seniors.
One of these senior events is the Senior Spring

Sinatra tribute show, she said.
Mary Makley Wolff, a Miami Township trustee, will
be attending the event to help out.
"Working with seniors has always been a
passion for me," she said. "I've always
