Savvy Seniors

Savvy Seniors is a loose grouping of mostly retired people who get together each month for lunch at a local eatery enjoying food, conversation and laughter. They rotate through a variety of different restaurants so if one doesn’t work for you the next one would. There’s nothing formal. It’s all about community. Does this seem like something that you might like? We’d love to have you! Contact Vicki Nowaczyk with questions,
