Riverhead Town’s annual senior citizen picnic was held Thursday at the Senior/Human Resource Center on Shade Tree Lane in Aquebogue, where these ladies kicked up their heels in a line dance to the tune “Boot Scootin’ Boogie” played by DJ Tom Parris.

More than 200 seniors feasted on grilled chicken sandwiches with lettuce and tomatoes, fruit, granola bars, apple sauce, cranberry juice watermelon and ice cream at the event.

Seniors from Peconic Bay Medical Center’s skilled nursing facility also attended, and some Town Board members stopped in to say hello.
