Cardington Seniors hold May meeting


Attorney Mindy Yocum, who recently opened her office in Cardington, was the guest speaker when the Cardington seniors met May 26 at

the Senior Center in Mount Gilead.

The attorney described her practice as one that offers service to those who may be under served due to financial concerns. Her fees are based on the client’s ability to pay. She has a general practice and can refer clients

to specialized lawyers, if needed. She will provide a free legal advice

clinic the third week in June at the Cardington library. The time and

date will be posted later. She is a graduate of The Ohio State University

and Capital University Law School. Her office is located at 114 West Main

Street. She was introduced by program chairman Carolyn Poorman

Giving the devotions was Pastor Paul Turner who based his devotions

on verses from Proverbs and Philippians. The pastor described the message

he had given to graduating seniors on the Senior Night at Cardington when

he encouraged them to continue to seek wisdom from parents and other older people. He said “we need to acknowledge that success is achieved with the help of others in our lives.” In turn, he encouraged senior citizens to continue to be interested in younger folks and reach out to them.

Linda Ruehrmund gave information about the food and games program organized by Officer Jason Kiefer of Cardington Police Department. This will continue weekly until the end of October. Donations can be made for these meals.

Ruehrmund also reported on the Friends of Cardington and said movies

and music will be offered on alternate Fridays and Saturdays at the park

this summer. Music groups will perform on Friday and movies will be shown on Saturdays. Food trucks will be available for each event.

The Cardington Street Fair will be June 24 with some activities also on

June 23, Friday evening. Notify Ruehrmund if you wish to volunteer for

games on the 24th.
