Sun Senior News Article

Not long ago, club members took advantage of the $5.25 seat at Blue Oaks Theatre on Tuesdays to meet up for a movie. Our most recent outing took us to see “Harriett,” the film about Harriett Tubman, the former slave turned abolitionist who was so successful as a conductor on the underground railroad that she became known as the “female Moses.”
It was another way to bring residents together to get a look at history that was both entertaining and inspiring. Movie outings are a good opportunity for clubs to have ad-hoc social “meet-ups” (and Tuesdays are a good price, too).
But now we are nearing the end of another year, which means a couple big things for us: the annual holiday dinner and dance (Dec. 14) and bi-annual business meeting (3 p.m. January 11 ). Along the way, some of us are hoping to reserve a table at the New Year’s Eve gala at Orchard Creek (we did the same thing last year).

Equally important is our goal of supporting one another and offering service to our community.
