Calling all Seniors! Retired? Bored? Ready to meet some new friends?
Join the Silver Branchers!
The Silver Branchers began in 1988 as a group of seniors interested in meeting for fun and fellowship. The current group has continued this tradition and would like to extend an invitation to those who might be interested in making new friends. Meetings are held Thursdays from 1:00 to 3:00pm at the Wells Branch Rec. Center, 3000 Shoreline Drive, to visit and play games. We also have socials and take day trips to places of interest from time-to-time (list below). Membership is free. Anyone 50 or older is welcome.
