Watch a video from the Senior Picnic Program - links to YouTubeThe Office for the Aging Senior Picnic Program is underway ,with a dozen picnics in  late May, June, July and August. We'll be serving almost five thousand Dutchess residents age 60 and over, who will socialize with friends and neighbors at the events designated for their hometown, enjoy a nutritious meal, and learn more about the programs and services offered by the Office for the Aging.

The Senior Picnic Program has been held annually since 1993 - making this year our 25th - and is made possible through private/public partnerships and support from many local municipalities and businesses.  Special thanks to this year’s Platinum picnic sponsors: Wingate Healthcare, EverCare at Home, Hudson Cadillac Buick GMC, The Pines at Poughkeepsie, Hamaspik Choice, Today's Options/Medicare Resource Group, and the Dutchess County Department of Community and Family Services – Protective Services for Adults.



Look for the community where you live to find out which picnic you can attend.
Picnic space often fills up quickly, so make reservations as soon as possible.

All picnics take place at 12 noon.
