FRANKFORT, N.Y. -- It was Senior Picnic Day in Herkimer County! About 400 senior citizens gathered at the fairground, in Frankfort.
For most, it's their annual reunion – it's a can't miss event.
The picnic started a decade and-a-half ago as the Herkimer County sheriff's senior picnic, but it got so big, that every Herkimer County agency has a role in hosting.
“We believe these senior citizens worked harder than anyone is ever going to work. They're a special generation that grew up hard, worked hard, provided a good future for us in Herkimer County and they deserve to be repaid in this manner. We do what we can to make this a special day for them in Herkimer county,” said Herkimer County Sheriff Chris Farber.
Coffee, donuts, and KFC were on the menu at this year's picnic.
