Literary Lunches for 2018 launches Thursday,  January 11 and runs through March.  Lunch is followed by a half hour entertaining presentation, moderated by Judith Lawrence. Volunteers are welcome to help serve lunch or to donate a tasty soup or delightful dessert!

The Golden Lunch is organized by Gale Hanson and her devoted volunteers. It happens biweekly on Mondays from January through March. Lunch is $8.00. The first lunch starts on January 15th. Chef Ben will make a delicious entree and dessert is provided by volunteers. This program provides our seniors a place to socialize with other seniors and lunch is served as if they are in a first-class restaurant.

Off island trips (such as swimming, bowling, golf and theater) are partially subsidized. New Horizons subsidizes the cost of fuel and will reimburse the cost for the car on the ferry provided there are three or more recognized New Horizons members in the vehicle. A travel expense claim form, with appropriate receipts attached, is required for reimbursement (click HERE for travel expense claim form). Completed forms can be placed in the New Horizons box in the Freepost at the Co-op or submitted to the Treasurer, Verna Kimmerly. Note that admission to the event and the per person ferry crossing fee is paid by the member.
