Friends group meets monthly at fairgrounds

The Coweta County Senior Friends group offers fellowship, education and entertainment that will help you live a healthier, more fulfilling life.

Sponsored by Piedmont Newnan Hospital, Senior Friends hosts meetings from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on the third Wednesday of each month at the Coweta County Fairgrounds on Pine Road.

Each meeting concludes with a catered hot meal – the cost is $7.

“You never know who may show up for the programs… entertainers, local experts or guest speakers on life and medical issues,” said Louise Swint, group president.

Senior Friends also sponsors community awareness and service projects, such as food and clothing drives, gift programs for local nursing homes and a stress-free bridge club that meets weekly at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, she said.

In addition, they offer various one-day and multi-day trips throughout the year, such as a four-day Christmas Show trip to the Smoky Mountains Dec. 1-5 and a fall picnic in September.

Everyone is welcome, but because the meal is catered, you must call 770-400-2374 to make a reservation. For those wishing to join the group, annual membership fees are $15 for single, or $25 per couple.

The 2014 Christmas trip to the Smoky Mountains is $440 per person and includes roundtrip motorcoach transportation, four nights’ accommodations, seven shows, four dinners and f breakfasts and more.

Anyone with questions or who would like further information or would like to make reservations, call the Senior Friends office at 770-400-2374. For trip information, contact Swint at 678-423-9289.

The office is staffed by volunteers and is not always open but all messages left on the telephone will be returned, Swint said.
