Golden Gabriels

This group of senior citizens (55+) in the parish meets on the third Wednesday (except in November, it is the last Wednesday of the month) at noon to share a meal and fun. It is a way for seniors to get better acquainted with each other. The group eats at a local restaurant during the winter months and out of town restaurants in the summer months. There are no dues, just a fun time!
