Senator Serino and Dutchess County Office for the Aging host first ever 'Drive-Thru' Senior Golden Gathering

New York Senator Sue Serino and Dutchess County Executive Marc Molinaro invite area seniors to participate in the first ever ‘Drive-Thru’ Senior Golden Gathering on Saturday, October 3rd at Arlington High School parking lot from 9:30am to 12:30pm presented by the Office of Senator Serino and the Dutchess County Office for the Aging.  The event will be held rain or shine.  Reservations are required and can be made by calling the Golden Gathering hotline at (914) 962-2624 by Monday, September 28th. 

Since 2015, Senator Sue Serino and the Dutchess County Office for the Aging have brought over 100 area businesses and organizations together to provide countless area seniors with ‘one-stop’ access to important health screenings and local resources at the Annual Senior Golden Gathering. This year, to keep area seniors safe and healthy while ensuring they still have access to critically important resources, health information and flu shots, the Golden Gathering has been modified as a ‘drive-thru’ event. 

Seniors will be able to drive through the parking lot at Arlington High School where they will collect a bag of resource materials, a healthy ‘to-go’ meal and a flu shot if they choose to receive one, all from the comfort of their vehicle. 

Unlike previous years, this year, an RSVP is required to ensure enough flu shots and prepared meals are available. Seniors who wish to participate must call the Golden Gathering hotline at 914-962-2624 to reserve their spot.  Priority for flu shots will be given to community members aged 60 and above, but caretakers or family members accompanying seniors to the event may also RSVP to receive a flu shot.  Those choosing to receive a flu shot will be given a designated time to arrive to ensure a safe flow of traffic at the event.

Representatives from the Dutchess County Sheriff’s Department will also be on hand to help seniors ‘Shed the Meds.’ Community members can bring their expired or unused prescription medications along with them to the event, and the Sheriff’s office will collect and dispose of them safely.

Arlington High School is located 1157 NY-55 in LaGrange.  For more information or questions about the Golden Gathering, call 914-962-2624.
