The Social Club plans and organizes events and trips for Green Hill Social Club members and the entire Green Hill community.
Residents are encouraged to join the Social Club for $15 per person, per year, to go on tours and trips, to the theater, ballet, concerts, opera, museums, and other events. At the Green Hill we coordinate concerts, bridge games, bingo, the Salon social events, and other activities.
Residents are notified of events through flyers on bulletin boards and in mail room cubbies. Events are also listed on the back page of the Green Hill News. To become a member of the Executive Committee a resident must be willing to coordinate a trip that would be interesting to Executive Committee members. The Committee has a secretary and a treasurer. Meetings are held once a month.
The Social Club organizes monthly movie nights in the East Building TV room. They present films of special interest that have recently been released on DVD. Past showings have included such popular films as “Green Book”, “Bohemian Rhapsody” and “On the Basis of Sex”, just to name a few. Show dates and times are posted on the bulletin boards near the elevators. All residents are welcome.
The Green Hill Communications Committee hosts a monthly Discussion Group open to all residents. Lead by a resident or guest speaker, neighbors gather for lively discussions on a wide range of topics such as current events, finance, local issues, and many more subjects of interest to the Green Hill community. Afterwards there are refreshments and conversations with neighbors.
The Green Hill Art Class is geared to all aspiring artists. it runs on a tuesday. The course is offered three times a year and lasts for 8 weeks. Lawrence Meyers, a well known water color artist, is the instructor. There is a minimal cost for materials.
Suspended until further notice
During the spring and summer, the Green Hill Social Club sponsors monthly casino bus trips to Atlantic City. Residents (over 21 years of age) are transported door to door via a luxury bus to one of Atlantic City’s casinos. In Atlantic City, they can spend the day gambling, walking the boardwalk, or taking advantage of the many other activities the shore has to offer. The bus returns in the early evening. Although there is a nominal fee for the trip, most of the cost is reimbursed in the form of casino credits.
