Friendly Center Club

150 W. Illinois Ave., Aurora, Illinois ● 630-859-8606 ● Directions

Meets Thursdays at noon / $3 weekly dues for members

Originated in 1951, the Friendly Center Club was the vision of John A. Lippold, who felt a club for ages 55 and better was needed. Today the club includes more than 250 members who meet at the Prisco Community Center every Thursday. The club is for all active adults 55 and better. Anyone may visit twice as a guest, and the third time may become a member. Everyone must register in advance for luncheons.

The club plans numerous activities every month, such as:

  • Birthday parties
  • Bingo
  • Luncheons
  • Holiday and theme parties
  • Guest speakers on special interest, self-development, health and wellness topics

For more information, contact Jennifer Rackmyer at or 630-859-8606.

In addition to the Friendly Center Club, the Fox Valley Park District provides programs for participants ages 55 and better.
