Great Falls Senior Center to Host Holiday Potluck

Great Falls Senior Center to Host Holiday Potluck

The Great Falls Senior Center (GFSC) is hoping to repeat the success of last year when it holds its second holiday potluck celebration for area seniors. The center is wrapping up its program year with this social occasion. Once again, the theme is “Celebrating and Sharing This Wonderful Season.”

In keeping with the theme, highlights are a potluck luncheon and entertainment by a local choral group. The Woman’s Club of McLean Chorale will kick off a program of seasonal offerings plus Broadway standards and a sing-a-long. Three singers, one comedienne and Iris Reimann, its director and accompanist, will entertain guests. The chorale has existed for some 14 years.

The only business to be conducted at this event is an important one. Guests who are GFSC members will cast their votes from the slate of nominees to the Board of Directors. The votes will be counted that day and the new board announced.

The Dec. 3 event will be held at Christ The King Lutheran Church at 11550 Georgetown Pike. The program will take place from 11 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.

The luncheon is a departure from the center’s normal format. Guests will have the opportunity to bring their favorite dish—salad, vegetable or dessert—to share with fellow attendees, or to make a modest donation. The Senior Center will supply ham, turkey, breads and beverages.

Dan and Karen Ritchey of Keller Williams Realty, Ritchey Realty REsources LLC, are the December event sponsors.
