Senior Picnic

The Senior Picnic Program has been held annually since 1993 and is made possible through private/public partnerships and support from many local municipalities and businesses.  Special thanks to this year’s Platinum sponsors: Wingate Healthcare, EverCare At Home, The Pines at Poughkeepsie, Home Energy Consultants, and the Dutchess County Department of Community and Family Services – Protective Services for Adults.  

Volunteers of all ages are needed at each picnic to help with set-up and clean-up, and to bring meals to the handicapped attendees; and at the Office for the Aging to make reminder calls prior to each picnic.  Call the Office for the Aging at 486-2555 or email bjones@dutchessny.gov for more information about volunteer opportunities for the 2020 picnic season.

Summer Senior Picnics Finish A 27th Successful Year

If you were able to attend a Senior Picnic this summer, we're glad to have hosted you! Pictures and video from this year's picnics are available below.

The 2020 summer picnic season is tentatively scheduled to begin right after Memorial Day. Dutchess County registered-voter residents age 60 and above will receive mailed invitations to their community's picnic approximately 6-8 weeks before their picnic date.
