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. In addition to the weekly meeting, the center offers a variety of activities. Luncheons are typically the last Thursday of each month. Please register at least one week in advance. The cost for each luncheon is $15.
