2nd Tuesday of every month at 12:30pm
Next meeting: Tuesday, August 8th
Club 55 celebrated 50 years of service to our Groton community at its January meeting and has been hard at work ever since. Many of the projects and events require detailed planning but the results are worth it. The mission of Club 55 is to provide our 55+ community with the opportunity for social, recreational activities as well as community service that makes
life meaningful and demonstrates the valuable contribution of seniors to our community.
How does Club 55 do this? Annual Club 55 dues, fund-raising activities, contributions, and support from the Thrive 55+ Active Living Center staff provide the money and technical assistance needed to carry out the Club’s annual agenda. Club 55 meetings are held monthly on the second Tuesday of the month at 12:30 pm. We look forward to seeing you.
Each year Club 55 gives out Achievement Awards to Groton High School Seniors. This is an award and not a scholarship, therefore the student can use the money for school related items including but not exclusive to tuition. This year Club 55 added an award for an adult who is returning school to further their education. College is important for many reasons, including increased career stability and satisfaction, and the ability to make an impact on your community. With more and more careers requiring advanced education, a college degree can be critical to your success in today’s workforce.
The club is proud to announce the winners of the 2023 Achievement Awards:
• Club 55 $1000 Award – Madison Porter
• Club 55 $500 Awards – Ryan Greene, Emily Wallis
• Marilyn Charette Memorial Award for Health Professions – Jennifer Meakem
