Encore is your invitation to come together with other adults (men and women, single and married) at Old St. Pat’s to share your enthusiasm for life, learning, service, and fun!
Just look around and you will see that people aged fifty and older have found many different, significant, and exciting ways to participate in, and contribute to, the life of Old St. Pat’s – with or without Encore; and that’s great! Encore also values the many opportunities that people of all ages have to come together at Old St. Pat’s. We believe the mixing of generations often creates a richer experience. However, we also know that there is great value in coming together with others from within our own age group. Providing these kinds of gatherings is what we’re about at Encore.
What kinds of programs and events does Encore host?
Dinner and theater outings, museum tours, concerts, lectures and workshops, and volunteer service opportunities are just some of the activities that we do. We’re always open to trying something new!
More an experience than a place, the Encore Cafe brings together Old St. Pat’s members and friends for a good meal, great conversation, and the best fellowship!
Your morning at the Encore Cafe begins with a catered breakfast buffet followed by a thought provoking forty-minute presentation by an inspiring guest speaker. There is always time for great conversation at the tables.
Do I have to join Encore?
No, everyone is welcome. In order to keep people informed about our upcoming events, we may ask you for your contact information, but that’s always optional. There is no formal membership.
Are there regular Encore meetings?
Yes, there is a planning group that comes together to develop our various program offerings. If you’re interested in attending a meeting, helping to plan, or you have some new ideas for the group, please don’t hesitate to contact our Encore chairperson, Mary Kay Slowikowski, firstname.lastname@example.org.
