As part of National Older American's Month, the Ascension Council on Aging held their annual picnic on May 25 in Donaldsonville. Residents from both sides of the river gathered for a day of music, dancing, games, snowballs and crawfish.

Older American's Month, held every May, is a month dedicated to celebrating senior citizens. It is a national day proclaimed by the president.

"We do this to celebrate our senior citizens," said ACOA Executive Director Darlene Schexnaydre.

People's Health was also on site to offer information to those in attendance regarding Medicare plans.
