Lunching tradition

Chesapeake-Sybene Senior Center potluck luncheon keeps growing

PROCTORVILLE — The Chesapeake-Sybene Senior Center potluck luncheon has been a tradition on the last Friday of each month for a number of years, and this past Friday was no different.

The event started at the center’s modular unit beside the Chesapeake Community Center, but senior center director Darlene Green said for about the past two years, the luncheon has been at Proctorville First Baptist Church.

“We used to have it over at the trailer, but we outgrew that,” she said. “Since we’ve moved it out here, we get between 100-125 people each month.”

Green added that the center provides the meat for the luncheons, usually with either the Coal Grove Freez-Ett or Proctorville Kroger helping out, and the seniors bring covered dishes to round out the potluck.

“A lot of times, we’ll also have some sort of entertainment,” Green said. “And I think the seniors just enjoy the fellowship with each other every month and the different varieties of food.”
