Legend jazzes up Toledo

May 18, 2012 by  

The annual “Spring Fling Senior Day”, held on Tuesday, May 15, included a performance by jazz legend Jon Hendricks. At 90 years old, Hendricks is known as the oldest jazz performer still active on the stage. Claiming to have been a local celebrity at the age of 10, it is doubtful that any performer can match Hendricks’ pedigree and longevity in the genre.

The annual Spring Fling Senior Day is put on by the Area Office on Aging. This year’s event was held at Sylvania’s Tam-o-Shanter from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm and, in addition to the jazzy entertainment, the four-hour event included demonstrations on flower arranging, fishing, painting, and wood carving. Giveaways and information about services and products for seniors were available from approximately 100 exhibitors.

At events such as the Senior Spring Fling, where exhibitions are present and businesses or service providers hand out information, a variety of printing services may be required. In addition to banner printing, many exhibitors may also require business card printing or stationery printing in order to hand these items out to those present at the event. Flyer printing, brochure printers, and other services are also likely to be used.

Justin Moore, who serves as the Area Office on Aging’s Vice President of Communications and Operations, stated that the event is planned each year based upon feedback from the previous year’s event. He said the annual event was designed to honor and celebrate senior citizens in the area and help them live quality lives.
