the Prisco Community Center, 150 W. Illinois Ave. in Aurora. The club is
for all active adults 55 and better. Anyone may visit twice as a guest,
and the third time may become a member. Everyone must register
in advance for luncheons. Members pay $2 dues each week. The club
plans numerous activities every month, such as birthday parties,
bingo, luncheons, holiday and theme parties and guest speakers.
Originated in 1951, the Friendly Center Club was the vision of John

Community Center.
