Prime Timers (55 & Older)

Prime Timers is a friendly group gathering every Monday from 11:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. The Prime Timers meet at the Township's Community Service Building at 2900 North Main Street in Buffalo Grove.

Typical gatherings consist of a card game called Hand and Foot, a variation of Canasta. If you have never played, the group would love to teach you! We are also always ready to learn and play your favorite games.

For special events, please see our schedule listed in the current Vernon Township Newsletter (PDF). Please contact Adult and Senior Services with any questions.
