GOLDEN AGERS LUNCHEONS

The Golden Agers Luncheon is a monthly luncheon for our senior citizen population to stay socially connected through fellowship with friends and exposure to relevant topics and activities.


Golden Agers meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm, except during the months of June, July, and August.  

THANKSGIVING LUNCHEON

The goal of our Thanksgiving Day Luncheon is to help everyone that finds themselves in need of a hot meal and a safe place to enjoy the holiday.  We welcome homeless individuals and families, the working poor, those on a fixed income, or anyone who simply needs a place to sit and "break bread."


Thanksgiving Luncheon 2018 will be held on Thursday, November 22, 2018 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.  


HALLOWEEN HAUNTED MANSION

Our Halloween event is held annually and it is a safe alternative to Trick or Treating for community youth.  Jones Center turns into a haunted mansion where kids are invited to Trick or Treat from room to room and participate in other fun activities.   


Halloween Haunted Mansion 2018 will be held on Saturday, October 27, 2018 from 10:00 am to noon.  


BREAKFAST WITH SANTA

Kids wait all year for this opportunity to eat a hot breakfast and visit with Santa.  Children ages 12 and under also receive a stocking stuffed with holiday goodies and a photo op.  While waiting to see Santa, there are holiday activity tables which they can participate.  


Breakfast with Santa 2018 will be held on Saturday, December 8, 2018 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  


PENNY AND DIME STORE

This giant bizarre, for kids only, allows community youth to purchase gifts for family and friends. Children are able to purchase items for any amount of change available.  Once purchased, gifts can be brought to one of serval wrapping stations for the final touched.  The children are thrilled to give their beautiful gifts to loved ones.   


Penny and Dime 2018 will be held on Saturday, December 1, 2018 from 9:00 am to 11:00 am.  


BROTHERHOOD BANQUET 

Our Brotherhood Banquet is held annually and funds are raised to give three $1,000 scholarships for high school seniors from Bloom and Bloom Trail High Schools.  In addition to recognizing the scholarship recipients, this banquet acknowledges community leaders with the Golden Heart Award.  


Brotherhood Banquet 2018 will be held on Thursday, April 26, 2018 from 6:00 pm to 9:00 pm.
