Editor, The Guide:
The Colgate Golden Age Club is closing its doors on July 25.
The meetings were held every Monday morning for 45 years in the Fellowship Hall at St. Peter Evangelical Lutheran Church in Eastpoint.
Baltimore County Recreation and Parks sponsored the club in the beginning but with budget cuts the club’s membership decided unanimously that the club should stand on its own.
For many years the membership held steady at 125. The club traveled up and down the East Coast and as far west as Missouri. Members celebrated their birthdays, anniversaries, Father’s and Mother’s days and other milestones.
The club organized sing-alongs, fundraisers and catered lunches.
In recent years, the membership has declined to under 50 members with approximately 25 attending meetings. Though club members will remain lifelong friends, they sadly decided to close the club’s doors.
The Colgate Golden Age Club will be missed!
