Joan Hanson: Amherst Club urges people to ‘try us out’

Monday, September 23, 2019

The Amherst Club has become a rather quiet gem of an organization that was formed in 1983 to bring together men and women in the Amherst area looking to develop friendships, learn more about current events and support social service, cultural, artistic and educational activities in the area.

Over the years, our mission of fundraising for local charitable causes has enabled us to give away nearly half a million dollars to local service organizations such as Not Bread Alone, Amherst Family Center, Dakin, Survival Center and more.

We meet for lunch with a speaker twice a month, on the second and fourth Tuesdays, from noon to 1:30 p.m. Bistro 63 in Amherst provide a delicious lunch (supported by our dues) and our speakers come from a variety of educational, political and business communities in the area. Club members are now mostly senior citizens who, while engaged in other activities, committees and projects in the area, find that lunches together seem to provide us with a steady ship in this world of climate change, political storms and health issues.

We are always looking for new members who would like to join the club to hear interesting speakers, have lively discussions, make new friends and enjoy community involvement.

Try us out! Come by for a lunch. Email the current Club President Joan Hanson at jhanso2@yahoo.com for more information.
