Almost 1,000 seniors from across the state are putting finishing touches on manuscripts, poems, paintings, sculptures and other works of art in preparation for the annual regional and state-wide Art and Writing Shows sponsored by LeadingAge Ohio.

“Pockets and Posies” was the title of the Maple Crest Ladies’ Tea held Mother's Day weekend.
“Pockets” stood for the pockets found on many aprons, once-upon-a-time, when aprons were needed for everything from carrying in fresh apples from the orchard to wiping ones brow after a day of canning.
The speaker, Pat Danner, from Fostoria, arrived in her mother’s apron and expounded upon all the ways that the apron had been used. Maple Crest elders and their guests, as well as the servers for the day, also came in aprons, many of which had special significance.
