Optional lunches include a pleasant meal, a chance to catch up with friends, and speakers or entertainers. We will have a new caterer and new menus for Winter 2019! At the time of going to press, the final decisions about caterer and prices have not been made. Just know we expect the meals to be wonderful! Speakers will include Ron Davis, SC Philharmoni c, with “Tuba Tales” on January 15, retired Episcopal Bishop Charles Duvall with “Biblical Stories to Tickle the Ear,“ Ron Pearson, former Director of the Koger Center, on the staging of Les Misérables (just before we see Les Miz in Atlanta), and Jerry Bellune, publisher of the Lexington Chronicle on “Does Anyone Read Newspapers Anymore?” Musical performances will include our own Joan Marco’s Chapin Chirpers.

Lunch includes roll, butter, tea, and water. Price for January 15 is $8.
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 $8.00. 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!​​
