Events Information

Welcome Club members look forward to “Events” that happen throughout the year. Two activity groups can go together to share an outing or social evening. Sometimes activities are in conjunction with our charity for a fun evening of Bunco or Bingo. We pay a small fee for a meal before playing games and that money goes towards our charity.


Event Luncheons

Our December luncheon is a special "event" since it incorporates a bake and craft sale for our charity, wonderful holiday musical entertainment and a delicious meal. Members enjoy the Holiday celebration together and also the chance to buy baked goodies or a special handmade gift. Some years our spring luncheon includes a Style Show where our members model clothing from several local stores. These luncheons are always a lot of fun!


Day Tripper Events

Our Day Tripper group has visited several places in Iowa. Most of the day trips are in the Cedar Rapids area, but sometimes we carpool an hour to see an interesting town or museum. We enjoy lunch out and have the opportunity to spend time together and get to know other members. Some of the places we recently visited are:

  • Amish Country near Hazleton
  • The new Cedar Rapids History Center
  • Lowe Park Arts and Environment Center in Marion
  • The Granger House Museum in Marion
  • The Cedar Rapids Gazette
  • John Deere Museum in Waterloo

Plans are being made for more fun trips and we are always open to ideas from our membership.
