      • The luncheons, on the third Wednesday of each month (September through May), are casual and engaging.  They are potluck style and always include delicious food and desserts. Joining with us you will experience senior togetherness in an easy friendly atmosphere. The luncheons programs also feature guest speakers, activities, or special holiday treats.
