by Jane Ahrens

The Senior Luncheons are held on the third Thursday of the month from October through May – most are held at the Union Chapel unless otherwise noted. Enjoy a delicious home cooked meal, monthly door prize/raffle, seasonal table settings, and interesting conversation.

The 2017-2018 is over, so enjoy the photos and join us Thursday, October 18 for the 1st of the 2018-2019 season of Senior Luncheons.

The Senior Lunch Committee is always looking for volunteer chefs and entertainment ideas. Island organizations are invited to host. Guest speakers are most welcome. Let us know if you want to get involved for next season.

Everyone over 60 is invited to join us! If you would like to be added to the list, please let Heather Burnham know. Email or call Heather 788-7662.
