History:      The Commission on Aging, with financial assistance from the Houghton Co. Board of Commissioners, has sponsored a picnic for local seniors for over 20 years. The Commission on Aging has been an informal group, comprised of local service providers focused on the well-being of older adults. The membership has declined dramatically over the past several years so this group has disbanded.

Current:     The Retired and Senior Volunteer Program (RSVP) has decided to take the lead in planning and hosting the event.

Theme:       Oldies but Goodies Music Montage!

The RSVP Advisory Committee and event planners want to encourage active seniors to attend.

They have invited several businesses, community agencies, and educational institutions to come and share what they have to offer to seniors.

There will be games, prizes, and raffles!
