Come one come all to the Christmas in June Seniors Picnic!

The annual Seniors Picnic at Oakville’s Coronation Park on Wednesday, June 1 from 11 to 2 p.m. will officially launch June is Seniors’ Month with fun and festivities! Psst…the theme of this year’s event is “Christmas in June”, so don’t be surprised if you hear Christmas music. 

The Seniors Picnic will feature Oakville’s talented group of senior dancers, singers, musicians, and local entertainer Suzanne Brown and the Captain R. Wilson School Band. Seniors are encouraged to invite friends, family and grandchildren to take in the live entertainment on the Coronation stage and visit with clowns and jugglers. Have your portrait done by caricature artist Bob Sherwood, your face painted by an elf, or watch balloon animals come to life right before your eyes.

Admission to the park is free. Food and refreshments will be available for purchase or pack a picnic lunch for the day. Visitors are asked to please bring a non-perishable food item for the local food bank. All food donations will be placed under the Christmas tree.

For more information, contact the Oakville Seniors’ Centre at 905-815-5966 or the Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors at 905-815-5960. Please note that the picnic will proceed rain or shine.

Seniors’ Month is an annual provincial celebration that recognizes the contributions seniors make to their communities. The number of Ontarians aged 65 and over is projected to hit 4.1 million by 2036. For more information on the town’s services for seniors and seniors’ centres, please visit the seniors’ centres web page.
