Pete Headd, Deputy Commissioner and Executive Director, Onondaga County Office for Aging has announced the 2018 Celebration Luncheon for Onondaga County Seniors. It will be held on Thursday, May 10, 2018 at Drumlins Country Club, 800 Nottingham Road, Syracuse, NY 13224.  Program and Luncheon start promptly at Noon.

Deputy Commissioner Headd adds, “The goal of the Office for Aging is to assist seniors and caregivers by providing the programs and services that older adults need to live independently. We find that Onondaga County seniors long to remain integral members of our community, helping others with their knowledge and their time. The theme of Older American’s Month this year is “Engage at Every Age” and we believe that statement accurately describes those we are honored to serve each day and also celebrate at this yearly event.”
