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.
