The Beltsville Young at Heart Club

Happy New Year! Since we could not meet in January due to the community center being closed, out first meeting of the new year was in February with a Valentine theme. March 17 will be a St. Patrick’s Day party. Dan & Cheryl will be our entertainment—oldies but goodies with an Irish jig allowed. Masks are required by the center as well as the 6-foot seating.

Our business meeting starts at 11:00 am, but come earlier to sign in, get some light refreshments, and buy your 50/50 tickets to win. We also have a Clyde’s Closet items to buy and even a “free” table. Sign up for a future trip with us, but bring your checkbook to pay when you sign up. Shirley has some nice trips to try, with full covid-19 precautions to follow.

Come to fellowship, meet other seniors over 55, and get to know us. We’ve been around since 1966, same place. --Beltsville Community Center, 3900 Sellman Road. Questions, call Lois at 301-498-9736.
