Lunch, Bingo and a Whole Lot More
Our Schererville location has been a part of the Northwest Indiana community for over 40 years. Reaching back almost as far is the Schererville Club’s 41+ Luncheon whether named as such because the Club is on Rt. 41 or because the attendees had to be over the age of 41, has been lost in the lore. Always a fun, social afternoon, the hour and a half most recently consisted of ordered-in chicken and a huge selection of potluck favorites brought in by the attendees. Lunch was followed by several games of Bingo with prizes. A typical lunch has a core group of regulars and fills in with newcomers, guests and staff who quickly become our new regulars. Birthdays, holidays, recipes, pictures of grandkids and the ups and downs of everyday life are just some of the things shared at the luncheon. The camaraderie and warmth generated by these afternoons reached all who attended.
When the pandemic began last year, the 41+ Luncheon was one of the first things we gave up to keep our Club family safe. And, those happy times have been sorely missed by staff and members alike. Beginning on June 15th, the third Tuesday as usual, we invite you back to the 41+ Luncheon, Members and Non-Members alike. Not a potluck for now, we are offering sandwiches and side salads made safely by our Café staff. Bottles of water and dessert will be provided. Please pre-order and pay for your preferences at the Service Desk by 5pm on June 14th. In an effort to keep everyone safe, we will be using disposable paper Bingo cards, practicing social distancing and asking that everyone wear a mask except when eating.
As with all things given up during this past year of COVID precautions, it will take a while for us to adjust to the changes and new rules but for now we are very excited to welcome everyone back to the Luncheon. Come join us!
