Senior Adult Sunday is scheduled for September 10. The annual Senior Adult Banquet will be Friday, September 8, at 6:00pm in the Fellowship Hall. This event kicks off a new year of programming for Roadrunners, Holy Rollers and First Friday Lunch and More. Representatives from each of these will be on hand to preview calendars for the 2017-2018 year.

The entertainment for the Senior Adult Banquet will be The Upstate Senior Band of Senior Action, Inc. – back by popular demand. A small ensemble of the band performed during First Friday Lunch and More this past spring, and we are excited to hear the entire band.

The Upstate Senior Band was formed with five members in May of 1999 and now has 60 members with a median age of 75. This group is directed by Tad Riddle. Twenty band members are in Carolinians Jazz Ensemble, directed by Ron Hamilton, performing at additional venues.

Uptown Catering will prepare the meal of a plated salad, Parmesan encrusted pork tenderloin, honey roasted potatoes, seasoned green beans, yeast rolls and apple spiced cake. Iced tea, water and coffee will accompany the meal. The cost of the meal with evening entertainment is only $10.
