For those of you who might be new to the parish or the Fayetteville area, we are an organization of seniors, 55 and older- you do not need to be a member of St. Elizabeth Ann Seton parish to join us. We meet monthly, typically the second Tuesday of each month (with the exception of December). We generally meet in the parish hall, but occasionally go on day trips in lieu of our regular meeting. We encourage you to regularly check this site as well as the parish bulletin for updates and information. We are organized as a senior's club through the Cumberland County Parks and Recreation. We participate in activities such as picnics, dances, and organized day trips as well as longer trips and cruises. We also receive a newsletter from Blue Street and Tokay (the two Cumberland County Parks and Recreation Senior Centers). These newsletters are distributed during our meetings. The newsletters provide information on upcoming trips, as well as activities at both centers such as crafts, games, physical fitness, etc.
Our next meeting, April 9, 2019, will be a excursion to Liberty Hall Plantation (free guided tour), lunch at County Square Inn (on your own), Complimentary Country Squire Winery Wine Tasting.
During our March meeting, representatives from the Fayetteville Police Department spoke to the group about scams, fraud and protection for seniors. It was great with a lot of practical information!
Following our meetings, we gather for lunch at a nearby restaurant (at your own expense) for continued fellowship!
We are a lively group with a full agenda for a year full of fun! Please join us for fun, laughter and fellowship!
