There is an active Senior Community Centre in our area. They offer simple full course home cooked hot meals at lunchtime, Monday to Friday at a very reasonable cost, throughout most of the year. During the Christmas season there is also available a Turkey dinner with all the fixings at a slightly higher price but well worth it IMO. It's a cheaper alternative to eating out and also a nice way to get together with friends for a good meal. The centre has many other activities and personal interest courses, all at a nominal cost or in some cases free. Apparently the centre is subsidized by the city and hopefully it will continue to operate on behalf of seniors as long as possible.
