Currently on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons we have exercise classes at the Berlin Baptist Church in Marne at 1:00 pm.  Cardio drumming is offered and is loved by those who attend.  We are hoping to keep this on-going, and we have plenty of room for anyone interested.

For ALL events except Bingo and exercise, a RSVP is required to ensure we have enough food and/or seating for everyone.   For ALL luncheons, a minimum of 20 people must attend, or we will need to cancel.  Please call Sharyl at the township office at 616-677-3048, or email treasurer@ocwrighttwp.org.

November 15 – Shipshewana bus trip – lunch @ Das Dutchman Essenhaus.  Leaving the Legion Hall at 9:30am.  Return time will be around 5:00-6:00.  Activities TBD.  If you have any ideas on what to do in Shipshewana, or where you’d like to stop, please give me a call. Suggestions so far have been Yoder’s Meat & Cheese, Bulk Food Store, and downtown.   You MUST RSVP and pay by November 8th.  The fee for a resident is $5, and $25 for a non-resident. 

December 6 – Bingo at Marne American Legion Hall at 1:00 pm.  All are welcome.  Bring a friend!

December 6 – Christmas Bus Trip – dinner, tour of Felts Mansion and sightseeing of Christmas lights in Saugatuck.  This will be an evening tour.  You MUST RSVP by November 30th.   Cost to a resident is $5, and non-resident is $45.
