Celebrating Seniors -- A Club Called Friendship

Get flash to see this video, or turn javascript back on

Every Monday night, people gather at the Moose Lodge for the weekly Friendship Club.  It is an evening of dancing and conversation for people over 50.  That is the only age requirement.  People who go there say it is an example of what has happened to social media these days, and the need we all have to converse directly with one another.  The club is open to all with a $4 admission charge and yearly dues of $15.
