PERTH AMBOY — Mayor Wilda Diaz celebrated the seniors of Perth Amboy during the fourth annual Senior Appreciation Day Picnic held Sept. 28 at the Alexander F. Jankowski Community Center on Olive Street.

“They had a great time. I want to thank all the sponsors, partners and coordinators who provided such a gathering for our Perth Amboy seniors,” said Mayor Wilda Diaz.
