There are several senior groups in the Muhlenberg area. Many seniors belong to a few of these groups. We are looking to the future and wanted to start having a few meetings during the year where all clubs come together for fellowship. We are hoping to establish a foundation for a continuation of the groups through these consolidated meetings. These meetings will meet at the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church at the corner of Tuckerton and Stoudts Ferry Bridge Rd. from 11AM to 2PM. Each meeting will consist of an informational speaker, then lunch followed by entertainment. The cost will be $10/person and pre-registration would be required at the Township Building or online. Please don’t forget to register if you want to attend.
