54th Annual Salute to Seniors
In celebration of Older Americans Month, the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services will be holding its 54th Annual Salute to Seniors events at various Westchester County Parks on Wednesdays during the month of May.
Westchester County Executive George Latimer said: “Westchester County’s senior citizens are an important part of our communities, and they deserve to be recognized for the accomplishments they’ve made over the course of their lifetime. We created events like Salute to Seniors many years ago to bring people together and create access to the programs and services seniors need to feel healthy and safe. I am thrilled that the annual Salute to Seniors event is returning in 2022, and I look forward to seeing you there.”
Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services Commissioner Mae Carpenter added: “Salute to Seniors events are celebrations that honor our older persons by connecting them to resources that they care about. This year’s theme, Age My Way, is a testament to the wonderful diversity that we appreciate and admire about our Westchester seniors. We are looking forward to the fun-filled activities that bring our communities together, because quality of life is better when we connect with those around us.”
Salute to Seniors will run from 10 a.m. – 12:30 p.m. at four different Westchester County parks on the following Wednesdays:
May 4: Sprain Ridge Park, 149 Jackson Avenue, Yonkers;
May 11: Ridge Road Park, 287 Ridge Road, Hartsdale;
May 18: Croton Point Park, 1 Croton Point Avenue, Croton-on-Hudson;
May 25: Glen Island Park, Weyman Avenue, New Rochelle.
Attendees will enjoy this year’s outdoor events that will feature a boxed lunch, music and information on programs, services and products targeted to the senior community. Parking and admission are free.
Reservations are required, as space will be limited. Call (914) 218-3968 to make reservations.
The Westchester County Department of Public Works and Transportation will be providing free Bee Line Bus transportation each Wednesday for all four events. Salute to Seniors will operate safely under applicable New York State guidelines in place at the time the events are in session.
