JOY Group (Senior Adults)

What is JOY Group?

A vibrant group of men and women 55 years and older. We may be “retired,” but we never retire from learning or having fun. This group is open to anyone in the community who enjoys being with friends. Come, join us, and bring a guest!

Asbury JOY Group meets the 3rd Thursday of each month and, together, to enjoy a delicious lunch and a variety of entertainment/education or adventure.


We generally meet from 11:00 am – 1:00 pm on the third Thursday of the month (excluding June – August). We meet at Asbury Church (North Building) and, together, we enjoy a delicious lunch and a variety of entertainment/education or adventure.


Our annual dues are $5.00 per year (collected in September) and the fee for lunch is $6.00 per person. The dues help offset the cost of lunches, supplies and gifts or gift cards for our speakers/entertainment.

Additional Information

Since the Asbury JOY Group is associated with Raleigh Parks and Recreation for Adults, we have the privilege of attending the Golden Years Holiday Celebration sponsored by WRAL Capital Broadcasting at the Raleigh Convention Center downtown.  This year, the event will be held on December 5th, requiring us to report the number of attendees earlier than usual.  Potential attendees must make a decision and sign up by our October meeting.  This will allow time for transportation and food arrangements to be completed.  The Golden Years Holiday Celebration features a delicious breakfast, a band, singers, dance groups, a little comedy, folks from WRAL and Santa, of course.  It is highly anticipated and well attended by Senior Citizens from all across the city and surrounding area.  Transportation is provided by buses from Raleigh Parks and Recreation.  The only cost for this uplifting event is a fee for the bus, which is $4.00 per person.  It is a really good time and wonderful way to get you in the holiday spirit!
