Please plan to join XYZ on the second Thursday of each month from September through June for a luncheon program.

Everything else is furnished. You are encouraged to bring your favorite 50+ friend, too!!

Memory Cafe

A Memory Cafe is a social gathering for those who are experiencing early stage dementia, mild memory loss, or mild cognitive impairment (MCI), and for their families, friends, or care partners.  First United Methodist Church has partnered with the Aging and Disability Resource Center, the Waukesha Public Library and the Alzheimer's Association to offer a monthly Waukesha Memory Cafe.  It is held on the fourth Wednesday of each month from 10:30 am -12:00 pm.  After the August meeting below, we will move to a community room at the Waukesha Parks & Recreation Building on Aviation Drive in Waukesha.  In 2022, we will move to the Community Room at the Waukesha Public Library.

The next cafe is Wednesday, August 25 at Cutler Park (beside Waukesha Public Library), for a Patsy Cline Tribute. Relax with your friends in the park to the songs of Patsy Cline with Kelli Cramer.  We are asking that you please register in advance at www.waukeshapubliclibrary.org or by calling 262-524-3680..
