One of the latest activities at senior centers is bowling on a Wii video game. At the Swanton Public Library, seniors from the Fulton County Senior Center took to the electronic lanes against a team of local young people called SEED (Students Encouraging Educated Decisions) , and won — 1,350 pins to 1,167. Each team advanced to the next round of competition in March. The tournament is funded in part through a grant from Ohio.
