Senior club honors veterans at monthly luncheon

On Nov. 8, about 160 seniors filled the auditorium of Southridge Recreation Center, 4800 McArthur Ranch Road, for the largest Thanksgiving luncheon the Highlands Ranch Senior Club has had to date. The club is about 14 years old and quickly growing.

“To have the crew come in here and knock it all out is amazing,” said Ron Winter, the club's president.

The monthly luncheon is a team effort. The Highlands Ranch Community Association allows the senior club to use the space and the Highlands Ranch Metro District coordinates and helps set up the event.

At the Thanksgiving lunch, members enjoyed a feast from Safeway, listened to classic rock tunes performed by Littleton-based Home Brood Band and acknowledged about 40 veterans in the room.

“It's kind of a good fit,” said Second Vice President Del Miller, “because Army and first responders are the guys we should be most thankful for.”
