The Friendship Club started out years ago as a social group for retired members. In the last ten years it has broadened to members and friends who are free for lunch and/or an outing each month. Our main purpose is offering members a chance to know each other better and having fun along the way.
Lunch is usually on the first Friday September through May (but check the church calendar to confirm). We typically meet for lunch, fellowship and a program, starting at 11:30 am and ending about 1:30 pm. Programs vary from entertaining to informative.
The outings are usually the third Friday, but this is subject to change. In recent years, outings have included visits to the Morse Museum, Orlando Shakespeare Theatre, and Faris & Foster Chocolates. Most of the time we have lunch either before or after the event.
