Several hundred senior citizens on Oct. 6 enjoyed the annual Elderfest celebration, held for the first time inside at the Ford Community & Performing Arts Center. A longtime tradition at Elderfest is the Walk with the Mayor, and Mayor Jack O’Reilly led senior citizens on a route through the building, due to rainy weather. Free food and giveaways, a pinochle tournament and bingo, and plenty of conversations defined the day, along with entertainment and the anniversary waltz, an Elderfest favorite.
