The Armstrong County Area Agency on Aging sponsored its annual senior citizen picnic yesterday at Crooked Creek Park under sunny skies and temperatures in the mid-70s. It was a welcomed relief from the days of rain and thunderstorms that preceded the event.

The agency operates the 12 senior centers throughout the county that provides recreation, entertainment, and lunches.

“It’s a wonderful day! We have a great crowd. We have around 300 today,” agency manager Charlotte Wells said.

The day included entertainment by “Elvis” as well as other local bands and DJs. A nutritious picnic meal was also served.

“The day’s event is funded through Area Agency,” Wells said. “Each one of my centers donated a basket and we raffled that off. They also bring in door prizes and we raffle those, so everyone feels like they got something out of this wonderful day!”
