Hazlet Township hosts two clubs for seniors ages 55 and older. They meet at the James J. Cullen Center at Veterans Park on either Wednesdays or Thursdays. Members can belong to one club, or both clubs. You do not have to be a Hazlet resident to join. The groups boast members from all the surrounding towns.
Meetings resumed Oct. 6, 2021 at the Cullen Center.
Friendships form easily at the club, where members get to know each other through annual events like a shared Thanksgiving meal, a patriotic Memorial Day service in Veterans Park, formal Christmas Party and festive St. Patrick’s Day celebration at the Lakeside Manor, and bus trips to Atlantic City. There are vacation outings too. The clubs paused meetings and activities during the pandemic, resuming in October, 2021. But the 2020 calendar included plans for a trip to Niagara Falls, a Mississippi River cruise and a club favorite: The Rocking Horse Ranch Resort in Highland, New York.
A typical meeting begins at 1 p.m. with a flag salute and patriotic song. The leadership shares club news. Please bring a light snack and drink. There is sometimes a speaker and bingo, if a club is licensed.

Cullen Center Seniors - Thursday (new As of October 2021, Cullen Center Seniors meet every other Thursday at the Cullen Center at 12 p.m. This is a change from their previous schedule.)
