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 ranges from $12-15.

The club plans numerous activities every month, such as:

  • Birthday parties
  • Bingo
  • Luncheons with entertainment
  • 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.
