Celebrate Seniors Day at the New Jersey State Fair
A day of celebration for older people is coming to the Sussex County Fairgrounds. The Sussex County Board of Commissioners, the Department of Health and Human Services and the Division of Senior Services will host a Seniors Day at the New Jersey State Fair. This fun event will take place in the Planet Networks Performing Arts tent at the Sussex County Fairgrounds on Thursday, August 11, between 9 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
“Our elders are precious. They enrich our lives and guide our paths. It’s the perfect day to celebrate their valuable contributions,” said County Commissioner Jill Space.
The theme for this year’s program, “Hawaiian Luau,” features a disc jockey hosting music from the Hawaiian Islands, as well as other entertaining tunes. All attendees will enjoy lively entertainment, light refreshments, door prizes, valuable vendor information and promotional giveaways. Each year a highlight of this event includes the announcement of the Sussex County Elder of the Year and recognition of all those who have been nominated. The County of Sussex Skylands Ride ‘Bus Driver Safety Awards’ will also be presented at the event.
