The in-club for 55 and older

Bunco is on Mondays, Euchre on Tuesdays and Dominoes on Wednesdays.

Line dancing is three days a week. Bridge is twice a week. And Bingo is on Fridays.

Playing cards, learning how to line dance and socializing are among the many activities that bring ages 55 and older to the Senior Citizens Organization in Noblesville.

About 500 members each pay $25 a year to be a part of the social club, where there's always something going on.

"It brings happiness from living alone. It gets you out meeting other people. Having a little food and refreshments. It's just a wonderful place to come. It's fabulous," said Del Lennon, Noblesville, who was playing Bridge on Monday afternoon at the senior center, which serves all of Hamilton County. She is on the center's board of directors, loves to play cards, and she organizes center parties. "Where else can I have a good time?" she asked with a smile.

She said the center has grown a lot over the years, "but it needs to grow more," Lennon said. "We need more people to come." She looks forward to Saturday's open house, which she hopes will bring in more new members. The senior center invites the community to visit from 1 to 4 p.m. at 18336 Cumberland Road, Noblesville. There will be line-dance demonstrations, card playing, tours and food.
