The Front Porch

Last Thursday of the month, 1:00 - 2:30pm

The “Front Porch”, a monthly meeting, allows 8-10 people to enjoy an

afternoon of congeniality. A specific activity is always “planned” but the

meeting is actually free-flowing.  The real goal is to laugh and have fun as

we enjoy a respite from the trials and tribulations we all face as we care for others

and ourselves during this pandemic. The Rotary Club of West Plano has partnered with WCOA to provide items for gift bags.  This event is held at the Wellness Center for Older Adults inside the Sam Johnson Recreation Center.
