Activities/Events

The OCCOA offers activities, events, and programs throughout the year for Otsego County older adults, including monthly curbside meals, summer Tiger Trips, and activities and programs focused on healthy aging.

Monthly curbside meals, which were introduced during the pandemic, continue to delight and attract area older adults. Each meal includes a delicious hot entrée, dessert, and small gift. All are delivered, curbside, with a smile by agency staff volunteers.
