OFA Picnics

The 2024 OFA Picnic Season is here! Each individual resident of Dutchess County over age 60 is eligible to reserve a seat, while space is available, for one free lunch at the picnic corresponding with their home community.

Reservations are required, and must be made by calling OFA during business hours (weekdays, 9a-5p) at 845-486-2555. We cannot take reservations via voice mail or email. Proof or residency and reservations are both required at each picnic. Picnic reservations fill up quickly!

There is an $8 charge for each non-resident guest, and all who are 59 or younger, if space is available.

Many thanks to our picnic-season supporters of all 12 picnics: The Pines at Poughkeepsie, Central Hudson, and AccentCare.

Below is the 2024 picnic schedule:
