The Purpose of the Senior Citizen Group is two-fold.  The Group is a way for Senior Citizens to have social interactions within the community, as well as be involved in the community and its’ events.  The group has scheduled bus trips, game days, bake sales, and much more.

Activities:

  • Meetings: Monthly meetings are held on the First Wednesday of each month at noon, at the Kirkwood Fire Station, Main Street, Kirkwood, unless otherwise noted.  Everyone is asked to bring a covered dish and place settings, coffee and tea are provided. The meeting takes place after lunch, with Bingo to follow if anyone cares to stay.
  • July meeting at 12 noon in Kirkwood Fire Station, Main Street, Kirkwood.
  • October and November meetings are catered and will be at Elks Club at 12 noon.
  • Bus Trips: Trips are usually once a month. Members pay for expenses for show tickets and meals, bus transportation is provided by the Town of Kirkwood.  In some events bus trips are opened to the public after all members that would like to attend the trip have signed up.

  • Any senior in the Town of Kirkwood can join by contacting Nancy Rychlewski at 607-775–0868. Membership fees are $5.00 per year. Unfortunately the group can only accept Town of Kirkwood residents at this time because of limited facilities.
