Commission on Aging Director, Dusty Baker, is excited about his Senior’s involvement:

“With live bluegrass music, bingo, a car show, and plenty of delicious food and drink, the annual Senior Shindig is already a high point of fun and entertainment for Cullman County Seniors. When we added in all the extra attractions offered by Strawberry Festival, we realized this took the Shindig to a new, exciting level. I appreciate the City Parks Department including us into the larger event.”
