This group meets on the second Wednesday every other month during the school year and is designed to enrich the lives of senior adults. This inter-denominational program is co-sponsored by several Olathe churches and offers topics of interest, education and good old fun.
Meetings are held at Center of Grace, 520 S. Harrison, Olathe. A lunch is also served (donations accepted but not required). All members of the community are invited to participate. For the months of June, July, and August, programming is replaced with Summer Cinemania presenting movies, popcorn and lunch.
Older Adult Bible Study
This class meets on Tuesdays from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. at the Ridgeview site and is open to all at any time. The group studies the Holy Bible for insight into the meaning for persons at the time it was written, and for the message these passages carry for us in today’s society. For more information, call the office at (913) 859-0111.
If you are a quilter, or want to be a quilter, you are welcome to join the Quilting Group which meets on Monday mornings from 9:15 a.m. – 1:15 p.m. at the Ridgeview site. Joan Shriver is the coordinator for the Monday group. Proceeds from the quilts are donated to a church project.
Silver Set is held six times a year (February, April, June, August, October, & December) on the second Sunday of the month following the conclusion of Sunday services. This luncheon is provided by the YES Council for persons 65 years and older as a time of fellowship with old friends and making new ones. This delicious buffet luncheon is prepared by volunteers for just $5/person.
Entertainment is provided after lunch, and has included musicals, theatrical productions, book reviews and much more.
YES Travel Events
Day trips are planned by members of the YES Council to provide opportunities for fellowship and to learn more about history and events in the Midwest. Occasionally overnight trips are planned as well. Costs vary with the trip, but are kept at a not-for-profit basis. Travel to each city occurs in a chartered tour bus for comfort and the trips are always a wonderful experience.
