Retirees’ celebrate Easter with special luncheon



by Sylene Argent

The Essex Retirees’ Social Club hosted a ham and scalloped potato luncheon last Thursday afternoon, in celebration of the Easter Holiday.

  Members of the Club and area residents were invited to take advantage of the luncheon to socialize and enjoy a warm meal entering into the holiday weekend.

  Club member Judy Lane was one of the event organizers. She said there is a committee of dedicated individuals at the Essex Retirees’ Social Club who try to put on a fundraising event each month. The fundraised help the members to maintain the Russell Street facility and be able to continue to offer social programs, such as an array of card games, to its membership.

  Lane was pleased around 40 individuals patronized the event, especially since families were busy preparing for the Easter holiday.

  “So far, they seem to be enjoying the meal,” she said.

  During the event, patrons were encouraged to wear an Easter-themed bonnet for a chance to win a prize. Some attendees went out of their way to really put a lot of effort into their headgear contest submissions.   

  Coming up, members of the Essex Retirees’ Social Club are looking forward to the summer weather. They will host a barbeque and yard sale at its clubhouse on July 13 and a strawberry social in June.
