  Come for the Programs. Stay for the Friends.
Old Guard Walking
Celebrating over 92 Years of Fellowship
 Come for the Programs . . .

The Old Guard of Summit New Jersey meets every Tuesday at 9:30 AM in the Parish Hall of the New Providence NJ Presbyterian Church, 1307 Springfield Ave, New Providence NJ 07974.   

* Since the Covid shutdown, we have been running in-person meetings with "hybrid" access by Zoom.  To join by Zoom send a request to [email protected]

Meetings start at 9:30 AM with coffee and socializing. At 10:00 we sit down, sing a song or two, and hear a few jokes & announcements. The day's invited speaker starts at around 10:30. Visitors are asked to arrive by 10:00 AM.  

Note:  For the present, in-person attendance requires full Covid vaccination. Face masks are optional.

Programs consist of stimulating talks by people such as past governors, mayors, politicians, physicians, Nobel Prize winners, judges, professors, historians, scientists, authors, economists, journalists, financial advisors, medical specialists, conservationists, etc. The following Q&A is lively. Put on your business casual attire or jacket & tie (or something more casual from May to September) and attend a meeting with us. All visitors are welcome. Admission is free.

Stay for the Friends*    

After the meetings, many members join together to have lunch at various local restaurants. 

In addition to the weekly meetings, there are  activity groups for golf, bridge, hiking, trips, computer help, tennis and more.

* Or, as one member put it recently, "Come for the Jokes, Stay for the Talks", since we start each meeting by singing a few songs and enjoying a few jokes :-)

Policy on Weather Cancellations  
During very bad weather or when the NPPC is unavailable to us, our meetings simply move online with Zoom. We will post a notice at this website and send an email to members.
