of the Organization is to provide a means by which retired
men, residents of the Meriden,
Connecticut area or its vicinity, may better associate among
themselves for fellowship, entertainment and exchange of ideas. Current active
membership, as of 12/2/21, totals 90 members.
are held at the Meriden YMCA every Tuesday at 10 a.m. from early September through the first week in June. Most members
arrive between 9:30 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. for fellowship.
At each meeting
there are brief reports from committee chairmen, followed by
a story teller presenting a series of jokes, a personal story, a poem or a
philosophical theory (all to be delivered in good taste and not to be offensive
to anyone in the audience). Then a guest speaker makes a presentation from a
wide variety of topics. Some members remain after the meeting to play Bridge or
organize hikes, tours of local organizations and
businesses, golf tournaments, and Bridge and Cribbage tournaments. A Holiday
party with spouses is held each December, and a picnic is held each June.
