Senior Citizens


The Houghton Area Seniors from northern Allegany County meet monthly on the second Thursday  for fellowship, food, and an interesting program—sometimes music, sometimes a travelogue, sometimes local color, sometimes valuable information—always interesting.

April 11— Greatbatch School of Music Program

The 12 member Houghton A Capella Choir, of the Greatbatch School of Music, will perform a wide variety of contemporary and classical music. They use only creative rhythms and percussive sounds by human voice for accompaniment.

Our noon luncheon is in the Houghton Wesleyan Church Community Room.  Bring your own table service.  Anyone reaching the mature age of 55, and any caregivers, will be warmly welcomed.  Bring a friend who may not normally attend. As a reminder, here is our April potluck meal schedule:

initials  A-F bring salads

G-N bring desserts

O-Z bring casseroles (or swap with a friend.)
