    I am 63 years old and I love going to the Senior Citizen's for lunch. They're lunches are Tuesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. They give you a months menu. The lunches cost $3.25 and are amazing. They include your drinks: Coffee, milk or tea, sometimes juice. They have a wonderful Entree and side dishes. Plus they have dessert. All you have to be is 60 years old for this price. It is $7.50 for anyone younger, but that is much cheaper than going anywhere else for all you get. Let's start having the younger Seniors come. The older generation won't be here forever and they are a wonderful group.
