Calling all Seniors! Retired? Bored? Ready to meet some new friends?
Join the Silver Branchers!
2021 Update: Like most social activities, the Silver Branchers’ have been on hold since last March. We generally meet Thursdays from 1 to 3 PM at the Wells Branch Rec. Center, 3000 Shoreline Drive, to visit and play games. Our current plan is to meet when we have enough members who are fully vaccinated. We will be in contact with each other and the MUD to see when we can resume this activity. If you are not currently a member and would like to be kept up to date, please email Glen Garey at firstname.lastname@example.org or call him at 512-461-1665.
We also have socials and take day trips to local places of interest from time-to-time. We had plans for the Fall of 2020 which are now tentatively set for Fall of 2021:

The Silver Branchers began in 1988 as a group of Wells Branch 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. Membership is free. Anyone 50 or older is welcome. You are responsible for paying your entrance fees and meals on day trips. We car pool for transportation, so you may be asked to contribute for the driver’s expenses. Transportation is limited, so please sign up for a ride by calling Wells Branch MUD customer service at 512-251-9814 or in person at the Wells Branch Recreation Center by the cut off date. For more information call Glen at 512-461-1665.
