For the last 50 years the Libby Fogle Lunch Bunch, formerly known as the Golden Age Club, has been meeting twice a week on Tuesdays and Thursdays in the Laikin Auditorium at the Arthur M. Glick JCC. This group is comprised of adults 60 and older who come together to enjoy a balanced lunch, socialization and entertainment. The cost to attend the lunch is $2 and is subsidized by CICOA Aging and In-Home Solutions.
Each month our menu changes to offer a variety of selections. Ongoing programs include drum circles, sing-alongs, and musical entertainment. In January we began Falun Gong, which is an ancient practice for the modern age. Falun Gong is a form of meditation based on truthfulness, compassion, and forbearance. It is taught free of charge by volunteers.
As part of Money Smart Week on Thursday, April 10 the Libby Fogle Lunch Bunch hosted the movie Fleeced: Speaking Out Against Senior Financial Abuse emceed by Kim Hood. Panelists included Indiana Secretary of State Connie Lawson, Director of Outreach Michelle Mayer, Indiana Attorney General’s Office, Public Affairs Specialist at the Social Security Administration Charo Boyd, Jeffrey Stinson, Elder Law Attorney, and Nancy Stone, Program Director, Senior Medicare Patrol (SMP).
Please encourage your loved ones to come check us out. We love to have our seasoned members as well as new faces enjoy our programming. Our programs are subject to change, so please call The Reuben Center at 317.259.6822 for updates!
