County to host carnival event for senior citizens June 26 in Saratoga Springs

May 2, 2019

Saratoga County Board of Supervisors Chairman Kevin Tollisen, of Halfmoon, first introduced 2019 as the “Year of the Senior” in Saratoga County during his swearing in ceremony.

To mark these celebrations, the County Board of Supervisors and the Office for the Aging are hosting a FREE event for Saratoga County residents age 60 and older at the Canfield Casino and Congress Park in Saratoga Springs on June 26th.

This carnival themed event will include games, prizes, live music and carnival style food for attendees to enjoy. The nostalgia will be felt as the seniors enjoy candy and games typically found during their childhood years.

Seniors can get their admission pin at their local senior center or town hall. We ask that seniors get their pins as early as possible to provide an accurate count of attendees. Homebound seniors will be able to have a pin delivered through the county’s home delivered meals program.

Seniors who are in need of assistance are welcome to bring a caregiver to the event.
Kicking off the day, at 11:00 a.m., will be a recognition ceremony for senior groups and support organizations from across the county.

“Our seniors in Saratoga County are the backbone of our communities,” said Chairman Tollisen. “They’ve contributed so much to our workforce, economy, growth and success over many years, and this celebration is a showing of appreciation that we hope they’ll enjoy.”

“This is going to be a great event for our seniors,” said Sandi Cross, Director of the Saratoga County Office for the Aging. “We’ve spent months planning a fun and activity filled event that will make seniors feel like a kid again.”
