The Officers and Board of The Bethany Golden Oldies hope you will try us out to see if Bethany Golden Oldies can help fill your day with Friendship, Fellowship, and Food in a Fun-loving Friendly group as a “lively youngster”.

Helping Others

We ask everyone to bring a can or two of food each month for the Bridgeville Area Food Bank. We also help our shut-ins during the holiday season.

Something to consider – Everyone likes perks!

  • Bring your free meal coupon and enjoy a meal and program with us. See for yourself if you would like to have a good time with lots of fun and laughter with this group.
  • The annual dues are $20. Your meal will cost $8 instead of $10 and you will get a discount on the next field trip.
  • Sometimes we need extra help with set-up, serving, and clean-up after the meeting.  Your help will always be appreciated.

How many usually come?

We currently have 80 to 100 “youngsters”, between the ages of 55 to 100 who want to have a good meal, hear an interesting program, and enjoy spending time with long time friends, making new friends, talking, sharing stories, laughing and having fun. No one is too old or too young. Moaning and groaning are not allowed.  We are non-political and handicap accessible.
We always have room and food for more.
