Open house at the Shirley Luck center

JOHNSTOWN — The Johnstown 50 Plus Club, located in the Shirley J. Luck Senior Center, 109 E. Main St., will hold an open house from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the center. This is open to the public and all are invited to come and have some free pizza and a tossed salad, while listening to some music from members of the Johnstown High School band and finding out all about the activities and things that go on at the center.

There will also be demonstrations and information on things put on by the center like art classes, yoga classes, chair caning and trips to places like Radio City Music Hall to see the Rockettes Holiday Show.

And those attending will be able to find out about all the things the 50 Plus Club does, from informative speakers, to free movie days and games.

One of the most important things the 50 Plus Club does is try to give back to the community that has given the club this senior center facility and during the open house that continues with a silent auction. All proceeds from the auction will go to the Johnstown Music and Arts Support Group who are trying to raise $50,000 to keep up music and art programs that might be done away with due to the school district budget cuts.

There will be a lot of items for the auction ranging in value from $25 to over $200, including a pair of tickets to see the Trans Siberian Orchestra on Dec, 19, at the Times Union Center.

Anyone attending can register to win a $50 gift card to Stewart’s Shops, no purchase necessary.
