In addition to the regular weekly meetings of the Old Guard, there are other opportunities for members to spend time with old friends or to make new friends.

GOLF - Many Old Guard golfers gather at Tunxis Plantation Country Club to play golf on Mondays and Fridays when the weather permits.

In May each year we also have Bob Sherman Memorial Golf Outing 
which takes place at Tunxis with golf, luncheon and prizes. Proceeds of the tournament go to the YMCA Annual Campaign.
