Fall 2017 Luncheon Schedule
Programs arranged by Carol McGinnis Kay, Lynne Mahaffey, and
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.
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.
