This week, the Southborough Senior Center held it’s “End of Summer” picnic. The fun was shared on Facebook, and I’m sharing some of that here. As long as I’m at it, I’m also sharing pics from the annual senior picnic held by our state representative.

The Senior Center posted on Facebook this week:

Our annual Summer picnic was a success! Fireflys knocked it out of the park! Thank you Hearthstones for providing make your own ice cream sundaes.

Below are some pictures from the post, some cropped for better viewing on the blog (click to enlarge).

Last month, Representative Carolyn Dykema held her annual free summer picnic for seniors in her district. Here are photos she shared from the celebration, followed by the announcement from her office. (Click thumbnails to enlarge and for contributed captions.)

State Representative Carolyn Dykema welcomed seniors from Holliston, Hopkinton, Southborough, and Westborough to the Faith Community Church in Hopkinton this week for her 11th annual senior picnic. The picnic, which was first started by Hopkinton residents Bob and Jackie Lavoie and has been hosted by Rep. Dykema since she took office in 2009, has become a popular attraction for seniors to spend time together and celebrate their communities. This year, over 160 guests from across the district came to eat hotdogs and hamburgers provided by T.J.’s catering and to mingle with friends and neighbors.

Rep. Dykema was joined by a number of local and state officials including Sen. Jamie Eldridge; Holliston Police Chief Matthew Stone; Hopkinton Select Board member Mary Jo LaFreniere; Hopkinton Town Manager Norman Khumalo; Holliston Select Board member Mark Ahronian; Holliston Town Administrator Jeff Ritter; Hopkinton Town Clerk Connor Degan; and staff from Sen. Karen Spilka and Congresswoman Katherine Clark’s offices.

Guests dined on a picnic-style lunch and had the opportunity to speak with local officials and neighbors about the issues most important to them and their communities. Rep. Dykema offered comments about several initiatives at the state level, including the House of Representatives’s GreenWorks legislation and her work to enhance local Commuter Rail service to address congestion concerns and support economic vitality. The event also included a giveaway featuring gift cards and treats from businesses in the 8th Middlesex District.
