Luncheon Club

The Lunch Club normally meets the fourth Thursday of the month, except July and August, and December when we join LIFE for its winter holiday lunch. Exact dates are confirmed at the beginning of each month. Lunch may be at an ethnic restaurant or one that is a neighbourhood favourite or unique in some other way. Members recommend restaurants that are reasonably priced and accessible via TTC and share in the responsibility of organizing lunches. All members are sent notices of up-coming lunches beforehand and must reply if they plan to attend. Most restaurants are small and space is limited so reservations are necessary. You must be a LIFE member to attend.
