Seniors enjoy time together at annual event

Posted: Updated:

PASCO, Wash. -- Seniors from all over the area gathered at TRAC Thursday for the 17th Annual All Senior Picnic. They enjoyed a meal, entertainment from the Diamond Experience, a Neil Diamond tribute band from Seattle, and vendor booths that specialize in senior services. All the food was donated from retirement homes and senior centers in the area. About 200 volunteers made the event possible. Students from Tri-Cities Prep and Tri-Tech were among the volunteers.

Everyone had a great time and enjoyed the opportunity to get together. Carol Ohler, the "Queen Bee" of her chapter of the Red Hat Society said, "I've seen friends that I've known for years and we've had such a good time just talking and getting together again."

Each of the three cities take turns hosting the event. Next year it will be in Richland.
