During the academic year, at 12:30 we enjoy lunch, congenial conversation, and every other week a speaker or entertainer. Some members bring their own lunch; most order a lunch catered by Lizard's Thicket for $7.00. The fellowship and food are great fun, as is the entertainment.

Recent popular speakers/entertainers have included local musicians performing Broadway show tunes, a visit from Abraham Lincoln on the afternoon of his assassination, and a trainer of therapy dogs – with her dog!​​ 

Summer lunches are more informal and include picnic-style lunches at the Center with entertainment, or lunch at a nearby restaurant followed by a tour.

Reservation and payment must be made by the prior Tuesday.

Cancellation must be received by Monday noon for a refund if we can sell your ticket.
