BUCYRUS – Due to ongoing interior work at Crawford County Council on Aging, all senior activities scheduled for March are taking place offsite at Bucyrus, Galion and Crestline.
“I’ve heard so many seniors say how much they regret coming to the building,” said Courtney Moody, Activities Coordinator. “We are fortunate to have great community partners like Bucyrus Public Library, Galleon History Center and Crestline Village to allow us to use these great spaces to provide activities for seniors.”
The Crochet Class and Crochet Circle will meet at the same time this month, from 1-3 p.m. on March 4 at the Bucyrus Public Library. Class participants should bring a 2.5mm crochet hook and worsted yarn to learn how to make a toy octopus.

The first bingo will take place from 12:30 p.m. to 2 p.m. on March 8 at the Historic Grace Church, at the corner of Union and Walnut streets in Galion.

The second bingo will take place from 2-3:30 p.m. on March 18 at the Crestline Community Center, 143 W. Bucyrus St., Crestline.
