Come for the Programs. Stay for the Friends.
Old Guard Walking
Celebrating Over 88 Years of Fellowship
 Come for the Programs . . .

The Old Guard of Summit New Jersey meets every Tuesday in the Council Meeting Room of the New Providence NJ Municipal Center at 360 Elkwood Ave, New Providence NJ 07974

Meetings start at 9:30 AM with coffee and socializing. At 10:00 we sit down, sing a few songs, and hear a few jokes & announcements. The invited speaker starts at 10:30. We ask visitors to arrive by 10:00 AM.

Programs consist of stimulating talks by people such as past governors, mayors, politicians, physicians, Nobel Prize winners, judges, professors, scientists, economists, authors, journalists, financial advisors, medical specialists, etc. The subsequent 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 hearing a few jokes :-)
