(Woodbury, NJ) – Tickets are still available for this year's Annual Senior Citizen Picnic on September 10, 2014 (rain date September 11), from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Red Bank Battlefield Park in National Park, New Jersey.

This year’s theme is "Come Strut with us up Broad Street".   Lunch, music and entertainment and dance contests will be presented throughout the day. 

The picnic is open to residents 60 years and older. Tickets are $2.00 each and are available at the Division of Senior Services at 115 Budd Blvd, West Deptford and the County’s six Nutrition sites. The ticket price helps defray the cost of the event, which is funded with the Title III Older Americans Act area grant.

Freeholder Adam J. Taliaferro said that Gloucester County is home to 51,470 residents aged 60 and older.

“The senior picnic has become a great tradition that is educational, fun and a chance for our residents to meet up with old and friends and make new ones too,” Taliaferro stated.  Freeholder Taliaferro is the liaison to the Division of Senior Services.   

Taliaferro said, “The staff really goes out of their way to make the day special for our seniors and everyone has a great time and gets a chance to get outside, dance, and learn about services and programs that are available to them.”
