WestMass ElderCare, in partnership with the Holyoke Council on Aging, invites all LGBT seniors age 60 years and older, younger partners, friends and allies to attend our Rainbow Supper Clubs.
Due to COVID-19, we have suspended our in-person dinners and shifted to weekly virtual gatherings. These meet on Wednesdays from 5-6pm. Interested individuals can participate from a phone or computer/iPad/tablet. For more information, visit our event pages to RSVP.
We are looking for topics for these gatherings, if you have any suggestions, feel free to connect with us via MeetUp or email at rainbowsupperclub (at) wmeldercare (dot) org.
