DUE TO COVID-19 WE ARE CURRENTLY NOT HOLDING MEETINGS

Every Wednesday: 11:30-4:00 at the Municipal Gym, 301 Main Street in Avon-by-the-Sea


About Us:

A life of leisure begins at home for area seniors who meet Wednesday afternoons in the Avon municipal gym for good company, refreshments and plenty of fun. The group is open to both men and women, and meets at 11:30 weekly. It isn’t necessary to be an Avon resident. We have people from Wall, Spring Lake, Belmar, Lake Como and Bradley Beach. Join in on Bingo, Rummikub, Bridge, Poker or a game of your choice. We are full of surprises and lots of fun. For more information contact Avon Recreation at 732-502-4517 or recreation@avonbytheseanj.com
