Senior Trips

Partnerships with other local providers of activities and services for senior citizens in the community have enabled us to offer unique new programs and trips. For all trip offerings, please check the Trips section of our online brochure.

Abbey Membership

The Abbey was established for active, older, fun-loving adults in the community. In addition to providing a variety of exciting leisure activities, The Abbey provides social service programs such as income tax preparation, informal seminars, health checks, and more. A wide variety of classes, parties, day trips and clubs are offered to encourage friendship & socialization.

An Abbey membership ensures “lifetime enjoyment”’ with recreational programs and opportunities meeting the social and educational interests of adults aged 62 and older. Membership benefits include having the Abbey Newsletter mailed to your home and being able to register for Abbey programs over the phone. In addition, Abbey members receive $5 off monthly luncheon fees and can participate in the Birthdays ‘N Bingo program at no charge.

Abbey members also receive special “members only” discounts at participating area businesses and member pricing on select Abbey programs and trips. If you are interested, please call The Abbey at (630) 993-8193 to get more information.
