Tickets Still Available for 2012 Senior Picnic



(Woodbury, NJ) –This year’s Gloucester County Senior Citizen picnic will be held on Wednesday, September 12, 2012 (rain date 9/13/2012), from 11:00 AM to 3:00 PM at Red Bank Battlefield Park, National Park. Tickets are still available. 


Freeholder Director Robert M. Damminger said, “The senior picnic is a tradition that is enjoyed by 1400 of our older residents each year.   Gloucester County has active seniors who enjoy participating in community events and know how to have a good time,” Damminger said. 


“This event allows our seniors to learn about services and programs that are available while enjoying dancing, good spirited competition and socializing with their peers,” Damminger stated.


Lunch, music and entertainment and dance contests will be presented throughout the day.


Freeholder Lyman Barnes, liaison to the Division of Senior Services, said,  “There are health screenings, information about health and social services, and community based organizations also participate at the picnic so our residents can take information home with them,” said Barnes.   


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.  Nutrition sites are located in Franklinville, Mantua, Thorofare, Glassboro, Williamstown and Paulsboro. The ticket price helps defray the cost of the event, which is funded with the Title III Older Americans Act area grant. 


For additional information please contact the Nutrition office 686- 8327.  There will not be regular nutrition sites held the day of the picnic.
