On Wednesday, April 10th, over 100 residents and guests gathered for The Mayflower Community’s (Grinnell IA) annual “Club 90” event. The 60-year old club presented an afternoon desert, program, and music to celebrate Mayflower residents who are nonagenarians—90 or more years old. 45 honorees live on the Mayflower campus. The program included remarks by resident Rey Evans, an avid post card collector. Her post cards were the table centerpieces. Rey shared some of the history told in her collection.
Club 90 entertainment was provided by the Mayflower Men’s Quartet—Gene Wubbels, John Noer, John Buck, and Ed Poush. Their final piece was a sung rendition of the “Irish Blessing.” The program was arranged by Mayflower’s healthcare Activities department, Chery Nelson, Director. Serving was provided by resident volunteers.
The highlight of the program was the induction of 10 new Club 90 members: Harry Bolton, John Buck, Dorothy Christenson, Jean Jones, Mary Ellen Lynch, Eugene McCaw, Rudy Munitz, Bob Smith, Wilma Vosburg, and Pat Yungclas.
