September Club

Point of Contact – Fran Gradella – 848-448-4335

Brief Description – The September Club provides a varied Program of Meetings, Parties, and Trips to meet the needs of Seniors over the age of 55 for socialization, information pertinent to the challenges of aging, and a Network of Support. Founded in 1970, 2020 marked our 50th Anniversary. The Club, per our By-Laws, is non-denominational and irrespective of Parish Borders. The ruling body of the Club is the Executive Committee comprised of Officers and Committee Heads. We have various Committees like, Hospitality, Sunshine, Membership; and we invite new members who would like to be more involved to join a Committee if they would like to.

Every Meeting has an activity, whether it is in-house entertainment, a game, a speaker on issues that affect seniors, or a holiday celebration. We serve lunch approximately once a month, and coffee and tea at every meeting. All meetings start with prayers and a flag salute. We sponsor 2 parties a year off site – one in December and one in June. We sponsor approximately 6-7 Trips per year from March through November to places and events of interest to our members as identified by survey.

 We meet weekly on Mondays with some exceptions. The dues are $35 per Program Year which runs from the Monday after Labor Day Monday through the first week in June. We strive to make the September Club is a place where friendships flourish and our seniors feel safe, at ease, and happy.  Anyone 55 years of age or older who is interested is welcome to sit-in on a Meeting. Just call Fran to arrange this.

Meeting Dates – Most Mondays in St Peter’s Room from 11:30am to 3:00pm
