Senior Corner


First Kosher Hot Lunch of the season will be Monday, September 16, at Temple Emanu-El, at 12:30pm. To ensure we can accommodate everyone, reservations are always required by 10:00 am the Thursday prior to the luncheon (September 12). As always, there is a suggested donation of $3.00 per person. Please let us know if you need a ride. 

Reservations are a must for these lunches as Beth (860-444-6333), from the Federation's Senior & Community Services, must call in a count to TVCCA by 10:00 am the Thursday prior to the lunch to ensure food is provided for Nom and Maggie to prepare the following week. Please let us know if you need a ride when making your reservation.


We are going to start celebrating our senior birthdays during the first Kosher Hot Lunch of each month. Please make sure that Beth knows when your birthday is so that you can be included in the monthly cake celebration. We look forward to singing "Happy Birthday" and celebrating with all of you!

Wednesday, September 25, 2019: "SHEAR MADNESS" at Ivoryton Playhouse. Cost $54/$57. Lunch on your own. 

"Shear Madness" is one of the most popular productions in the world, delighting audiences with its unique blend of madcap improvisation and spine tickling mystery. This unique comedy-whodunit takes place today in the "Shear Madness" hair-styling salon and is chock full of up-to-the-minute humor. A murder is committed, and the audience gets to spot the clues, question the suspects, and solve the mystery. Voted "Best Comedy of the Year" seven times by the Boston Globe and "Best Play of the Year" by the Chicago Sun-Times and the Philadelphia Enquirer, "Shear Madness" has also received the Raven Award from the Mystery Writers of America and has been inducted into the Comedy Hall of Fame, the first play ever to receive that accolade.

Wednesday, October 23, 2019: "BILLY ELLIOT" at Goodspeed. Cost $64/$67. Lunch on your own. 

Young Billy Elliot is pulled between his family's coal-mining roots and his newly-discovered passion to dance. Is his future boxing gloves or ballet shoes? In the hardscrabble world of a changing England, reaching high becomes a leap of faith. Following your dream - and overcoming obstacles - has never been more electric than in the 10-time Tony winning Broadway phenomenon with songs by the legendary Elton John. Celebrate the idea of being yourself in the Goodspeed premier of this powerful dance-filled story.

~~~~~~~~Information you need to know about our trips~~~~~~~~

Our ticket policy requires that a $25 deposit accompany your reservation. These deposits MUST go through Beth. Just writing down your name will no longer be accepted.Please make sure your phone number is provided so we can call you with a pickup time for the event.


A trip MUST have at least four (4) persons per car to happen. If there is an outing in which you are interested, make sure you get to go by asking a few friends to join us. Our policy has always been “the more the merrier”. 


Payment in full is required three (3) weeks prior to the event. You will be notified that your final payment is due, either by mail or a phone call. If there is no response, then your ticket will be forfeit. If at the last moment you are unable to attend a performance, the responsibility for your ticket rests with you. If we have a wait list we will be happy to make a call. Because we have already paid for your ticket we are unable to refund your money or put it toward another show. This policy will be firmly enforced.
