Program and Free Luncheon

Set for Seniors at Woman’s Club 

The Palisades Alliance for Seniors will hold its December 17 meeting at the Woman’s Club, 901 Haverford Ave. (Please note this is a change of venue.) The program and lunch are open to all and free of charge. To help in food planning, please RSVP for the lunch by calling (424) 260-6167. There is free on-site parking, but space is limited, so attendees should allow extra time to find street parking.
