Together Today

Together Today invites adults 55+ to enrich their lives through fun, educational, and healthy activities with friends new and established.

Our Together Today Program provides an excellent opportunity for older adults to get together on a regular basis, make new friends, and have a wonderful time socializing together. An important side benefit is that the participants develop a very caring attitude toward each other and look out for each other’s welfare. The goal of the program is to prevent isolation and create community.

Together Today is a time of gathering for lively conversation, playing cards and games, enjoying entertaining and educational programs, and sharing lunch. Every location meets on a weekly basis. The group begins with coffee and social time full of games and catching up with friends.  Lunch is provided by a generous sponsor to the group, followed by a planned activity or presentation. The program is free of charge to any older adults in Hamilton County. Transportation is available upon request.

Don’t go it alone. Join us at Together Today!

What You Can Expect At Together Today

When you arrive at Together Today, you will be welcomed by our lead volunteers.  They will introduce you to the group participants and help you get to know everyone.  In the morning, many participants enjoy cards, dominos, and other games, while socializing.  Around noon, lunch is provided by one of our Together Today sponsors. The sponsor will chat about their organization and answer questions from the group.  After lunch, the sponsor will lead an activity such as Bingo, presentation on aging issues, or a music performance. You will leave Together Today with new friends and ready to come back next week.
