PAULDING – A Fourth of July picnic in the park is being sponsored for senior citizens by the Paulding County Senior Center.

Beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Thursday, July 3, lunch will be served at the Herb Monroe Community Park at the northwest corner of Main and Jackson streets.

“Herb loved our annual picnics on the patio, so this year it’s only fitting that we move our event to the park,” said Marsha Yeutter, senior center director.

“You can come to the center and ride down in our vans or you can meet at the park,” she continued.

Menu for the day is grilled cheeseburgers, broccoli salad, tomato and cucumber salad, tropical fruit, Goldfish crackers and ice cream floats.

Citizens 60 years of age and older may make reservations until 5 p.m. Wednesday, July 2 by calling the center at 419-399-3650.

Lunch will also be served at the center for those who do not wish to go to the park, according to Yeutter.
