At 10:30 a.m. on Thursday at the Leinie Lodge Bandshell, two Minnesota seniors will be honored with the Outstanding Senior Citizens Award. The award recognizes outstanding senior citizens who have contributed their time and talent to benefit their community after reaching the age of 65. Honorees are chosen out of a pool from nominees submitted from each county in the state.
FaceAging MN wants to send a big Thank You to all Outstanding Senior Citizen nominees for all you do in communities across Minnesota!
Other fun activities on Seniors Day include the 14th annual State’s Largest Senior Stretch and Stroll at Carousel Park at 9 a.m. and old-time music by Barefoot Becky and the Ivanhoe Dutchmen at 3 p.m. at the Schell’s Stage.
