ULSTER COUNTY OFFICE FOR THE AGING SENIOR “FIESTA” PICNIC FUN TIME FOR ALL
Ulster County Executive Mike Hein and the Ulster County Office for the Aging were so pleased with the attendance at the Senior “Fiesta” Picnic on Thursday, September 4, 2014 at the Thomas Felton Community Park in Modena. There were 125 seniors who enjoyed the picnic and festivities. Music was provided by Bob Martinson which inspired enthusiastic audience participation, with dancing and a sing-along.
“Please do not stop sharing your wisdom and experiences with younger generations, you have so much to offer. Some of the best advice I ever received was from my grandfather. He taught me the importance of education, hard work and public service,” said County Executive Hein.
The County Executive and the Office for the Aging gratefully acknowledge Town of Plattekill Supervisor Joseph Croce for the use of the park with its beautiful scenic view, as well as Plattekill’s Recreation Director, Will Farrell, for all of his assistance and support, and Mary Ellen Geary and Wingate Healthcare for sponsoring this event. Additionally, many thanks to Prestige Services for the delicious BBQ lunch, the Southern Ulster Rotary and the Ardonia Market for their generous donations.
It was a perfect day with perfect weather for a picnic!
