Recent & Upcoming Events
We had several events planned for spring and summer of 2020 that had to be postponed and/or canceled due to COVID-19.
But please check back here as life returns to “normal” – it’s our priority going forward,
when it’s safe and responsible to do so,
to have many opportunities to get everyone together for social activities!

Our volunteers are invited to gather at the Befrienders’ table at 6:00 p.m., and the first $150 of pizza is on us, due to a generous donation from a former volunteer!

2nd Annual Decade Dance – The 1950s
Originally scheduled for Saturday, Sept 12, 2020…
this event has been postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19 concerns
Hey Daddy-0, get out your leather jackets and poodle skirts and get ready for some Jailhouse Rock at our annual Decade Dance Party and Fundraiser! Our inaugural event last September 2019 was a big hit as we celebrated the Swinging 1940s, and in Fall 2021 we’ll be moving up and on to the 1950s. So get in touch with your inner Elvis and Bobby Soxer and get excited for some malt sodas, grown-up cocktails, appetizers, live music, dancing, and more!
Details to follow as we approach… but note that unlike last year, tickets will not be sold in advance. Instead, they’ll simply be sold at the door as you enter.
And remember, costumes are encouraged but certainly not required! You’re sure to feel comfortable either way.
So mark your calendars when we have a firm date for Fall 2021 and we hope to see you there!
