The Senior Social Program, which meets Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays, is included in the Senior Social Membership and open to adults 65+. The Senior Social program provides a wide range of activities and an opportunity to develop and maintain friendships. Community participants are welcome to come for a trial period. A well balanced Kosher meal is served three days a week. The Senior Social Program is supported by generous grants from the Union County Division on Aging and other foundations.
