Silver Branchers

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 any and everyone who might be interested in making new friends.  Meetings are held  Thursdays of each month from 1-3pm at the Wells Branch Rec. Center, 3000 Shoreline Drive to visit and play games.  We also have socials and take day trips to local places of interest from time-to-time. Membership is free.  There are no age requirements; everyone is welcome.  Both individuals & couples are invited.  For more information, call 512-461-1665 or just stop by.
