Owen Senior Citizens Club News: Candidate speaks to seniors

-A A +A

With 12 members and two guests present, the Owen County Senior Citizens Club monthly meeting was called to order on Aug. 20 by president Wanda Moreland.
Chaplin Marlene Mason provided the monthly scripture reading and the thought for the day, “A few minutes of kindness shown to others, including strangers, can make this world a better place for all.”
Mark Bess, a candidate for Owen County Sheriff, was a guest speaker. He spoke about his principles and his intentions should he be elected as the next Owen County sheriff and then answered questions from several club members.
Everyone agreed that the recent trip on the B&B Riverboat was a very pleasant event which included a delicious buffet and entertainment provided by a gentleman playing the banjo, singing folk songs and citing some interesting history tidbits for the Ohio River, Cincinnati, and the Kentucky towns across from Cincinnati, Ohio.
While strolling on the outer decks of the boat later, we were fortunate to be close to a Cincinnati Reds game in progress and see the fireworks shoot from the ball park when the Reds hit several home runs.
Possible trips for the fall and winter were discussed, as well as firming up details for participation in the Sweet Owen Festival in September.  
Club meetings are held the third Wednesday of every month, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m., in the Odd Fellows’ Hall on Seminary Street in downtown Owenton.
Visitors age 60 and over are welcome to attend monthly meetings.
