We are pleased to announce that Herkimer County will be sponsoring a 2023 Senior Citizen’s Picnic.

Herkimer County is sponsoring the Senior Citizens’ Picnic. It will be held on Wednesday, June 28, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at the Herkimer County Fairgrounds, Frankfort, New York. Coffee and doughnuts will be available starting at 10:00 a.m. Bingo will start at 11:00 a.m.

Any person aged 60 & over interested in participating in the picnic can attend. You may provide your own lunch, or you can purchase a ticket for lunch, which is being provided by Kentucky Fried Chicken (boneless chicken, potatoes, coleslaw, and biscuit) at a cost of $6.00 per meal. Please contact Michele Gilbert at (315) 867-1152 for the number of tickets you will need. Payment is necessary when picking up tickets. Tickets can be picked up at the Herkimer County Treasurer’s office (109 Mary Street, Suite 2419, Herkimer). Checks should be made payable to Herkimer County Treasurer. The deadline to purchase tickets is June 22, 2023.

The Picnic will also feature BINGO and an opportunity to win prizes. We are asking community members and organizations to donate gift certificates for local businesses that will be given as prizes for the senior picnic. We ask that the gift certificates be in $10 increments. You are welcome to purchase several gift certificates to support your favorite local business. If any community member or organization would like to donate a gift certificate for a local business, you can mail them to: Herkimer County Sheriff’s Dept. at 320 N Main Street Suite 2900 Herkimer, NY 13350, or you can contact the Sheriff’s Dept. with any questions at 315-867-1168.

We look forward to a successful 2023 Senior Picnic.
