The Parks and Recreation Department provides the following programs for Adults and Seniors:
Quarterly Senior Meet and Greet
Senior Meet & Greet is our informal monthly potluck luncheon, held quarterly (February, June, August, and December) at various locations, including the MLK, Jr. Recreation Center, Atlantic Recreation Center, and City of Fernandina Beach Golf Course clubhouse. It is open to anyone ages 55 years and older. This is a great opportunity to meet other people who like to socialize and be active! A guest speaker or entertainment is featured before lunch. We ask that all attendees RSVP at www.perfectpotluck.com and let us know what you will bring for the lunch buffet (categories are appetizer, main dish, side dish, dessert, and beverage). Drinks (coffee and water), plates, cups, napkins, and eating utensils are provided. JOIN OUR EMAIL LIST to receive monthly notifications - email Jason Brown: firstname.lastname@example.org
