Clubs & Discussion Groups
Thursday, May 18, 1:00 - 2:30 pm
At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat a snack, drink tea or coffee and discuss death. It is a directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes. It is not a grief support group or a counseling session. Interested? Death Cafés have spread quickly across Europe, North America and Australasia. Since 2011 there have been 13,972 Death Cafés in 81 countries. Please register.
Gay, Gray & Beyond
2nd and 4th Thursdays, 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
GG&B is a discussion group for those fortunate enough to have arrived, that is, for those who know the obstacles, but also recognize that there have been joys. Those who look beyond the closet. Let's get together to consider our individual selves, our unique strengths and the nature of our ever-changing world. Sponsored by the LGBTQ 50+ Alliance. Visit the LGBTQ 50+ Alliance website for more information and resources.
Wednesdays, 1:30 pm – 2:30 pm

This is MSC’s informal version of the Red Hat Society. We meet once a month for camaraderie at the Madison Senior Center, and we always try to wear red. Most people bring a lunch or register to receive a meal at the congregate meal seat operated by NewBridge. After lunch we plan an activity or just socialize. In between meetings, we plan get together’s for birthdays, movies or local events. This free (and fun) group is open anyone age 55+. You are responsible for your own meal and activity fees when we go out.
