On September 17, over 1000 senior citizens gathered at Schuetzen Park for North Bergen’s annual senior citizen picnic.
The picnic began in 1992 where almost 300 seniors gathered outside. Ever since raining that year, the event has been held indoors and has grown to over 1000 senior’s in attendance.
Also in attendance were Anthony Vanieri, Mayor Nicholas Sacco, Sherrif Frank Schillari, and Commissioners Allen Pascual, Frank Gargiulo, Theresa Ferraro, and Hugo Cabrera.
A DJ and dance contests were held with trophies given out to the winners.
