Fifty people turned out for the Annual Senior BBQ July 1 at Veterans Memorial Park. The event featured outdoor games, music by Jenny Johnson and the Junketeers, and a delicious lunch served by South Burlington School District Nutritional Services. The free event is hosted by South Burlington Recreation and Parks (SBRP), which is currently celebrating National Recreation and Parks Month with their “Get Your Play On” challenge, inspiring residents to discover the power of play and adventure. The seniors in attendance at the Annual BBQ played games, danced, and enjoyed a great day in the park. SBRP Assistant Director Holly Baker aptly quoted George Bernard Shaw when commenting on the event, “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.”
