"One of the great internal missions of our Church"
Classic Crowd is just what its name implies. CLASSIC!!! It is one of the great internal missions of Fairview Christian Church. It actually goes beyond, as probably a dozen of the regular attendees are not members of our church. It provides older people an opportunity to enjoy a good lunch and fellowship.
It meets regularly on the second Thursday of each month except August. Meetings include a carry-in lunch, shepherded by master chef Russell F. and his faithful crew. The programs are either entertaining or informative. A short business meeting includes reports from the secretary, treasurer, concerns, group travel plans, door prizes, singing a patriotic song, the Pledge of Allegiance, prayer, and other items of interest. Birthdays and anniversaries are recognized. The tables are neatly decorated.
All these responsibilities are carried out by dozens of people who have reached the point of bragging about their age. There are 103 people on the calling list. Attendance varies from 50 to 75. Guests and family are always welcome.
If you are eligible to belong to AARP, Classic Crowd would welcome you. If you would like to be on the calling list or if you have a transportation problem, maybe there is help - call the church office.
Two dollars for lunch. How can you beat that???
