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.
Volunteers of all ages are needed at each picnic to help with set-up and clean-up, and to bring meals to attendees with mobility challenges; 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 email@example.com for more information about volunteer opportunities for the 2020 picnic season.
The 2020 summer picnic season is 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.
All Dutchess County residents age 60 and above will be eligible to make a reservation, while seating is available, for the picnic serving their community. Reservations open March 16, 2020.
Important: reservations are required for all Senior Picnic guests. Seating is extremely limited, and picnics are unable to accept walk-in guests.
