Senior Living Information & Articles
Leaving a Legacy.
Since July 2018, a series of “leaving a legacy” articles have been published in the quarterly issue of Senior Living, Ashland Times-Gazette. Ashland County seniors who are interviewed and profiled have unique stories and legacies, and are not necessarily well-known in the community.
- Do you know a senior who is a “hidden hero,” who contributes to our community, and makes a difference? Do you know a senior who has built a strong legacy, not limited to planned distribution of financial assets? Do you know an older adult who might be interested in being interviewed and written about?
Find out how you can nominate a "hidden hero" HERE.
