REAP (Retired Executives & Professionals)
REAP is a weekly JCC club for active senior adults that is organized and run by its own energetic and intellectually-passionate membership. Looking to provide meaningful social and learning experiences, each session features a one-hour educational or cultural program, followed by a social, brown-bag lunch that members bring. Participants then take part in spinoff afternoon programs that include bridge, current events, musical programs, short story discussions, a book club and more. REAP also features special holiday celebrations, off-site lunches and day trips during the year. Transportation offered to many towns for $5 round trip fee (based on availability). Coffee and tea are served.
