Seniors Who Rock to honor active senior citizens

Nathaniel Jones is among four "Seniors Who Rock" to be celebrated on Nov. 9


Pro Seniors will honor four senior citizens at its Seniors Who Rock event Nov. 9: Marty Brennaman, Sr. Rose Ann Fleming, Hon. Nathaniel Jones and Mary Meinhardt. All four honorees are over 70 years old and remain active senior citizens in the community.

The Seniors Who Rock even will also celebrate Pro Seniors’ 40th anniversary. The nonprofit has helped more than 100,000 senior citizens with long-term problems through their three programs — legal services, long-term care ombudsman and Ohio SMP (Senior Medicare Patrol) — says Resource Development Manager Brittany Ballard.

Brennaman has been the radio announcer of the Cincinnati Reds since 1974. 

Fleming, who is an attorney, is the special assistant to Xavier University President Michael Graham. She also works with the school's men's basketball players as an NCAA Faculty Athletic Representative.

Judge Jones has served on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit and general counsel of Cincinnati's NAACP chapter.

Meinhardt is a guardian for Cincinnati Area Senior Services as well as a board member of EPIC House and Pro Seniors.

“One of the things we want is to empower seniors with positive images,” Ballard says. “These honorees are proof that you can be active and find inspiration in your life … even when you’re a senior.”
 
Seniors Who Rock is an invite-only event and will not be open to the public.
