Our Seniors make a remarkable team! There are many things to do at our club! During the hot summer months, you can sit in our air conditioned facility and enjoy arts & crafts, a round of Bingo or just chat with friends over a good cup of coffee and a hot lunch. On those cold winter days, keep warm and get cozy enjoying those same activities. Our Seniors favorite thing to do is go on field trips! We take them from Atlantic City fun to day trips in Pennsylvania. Our Seniors often visit Hunterdon Hills Playhouse to enjoy a wonderful meal followed by a play. Our Seniors also enjoy the benefit of free transportation to run local errands, such as food shopping, doctors office visits and even to the mall.
