The Scandinavian Athletic Club Park was a magnet for politicians yesterday as hundreds of senior citizens attended an annual picnic.
The festivity, started in the 1970s, is sponsored by the Worcester County Deputy Sheriff’s Association.
It was started by the late Theodore M. “Ted” Herman, a former Worcester County sheriff, Worcester city police officer, firefighter and a former state legislator, the Telegram & Gazette of Worceter reports today.
Now Sheriff Guy W. Glodis has renamed it “Tribute to Senior Citizens” and it attracts seniors from all over the area.
