Avon Grove School District introduces Gold Card Club for senior citizens

12/08/2016 01:59PM ● By Steven Hoffman

The Avon Grove School District has introduced the Gold Card Club for people who reside in the school district and are at least 62 years of age. The club offers senior citizens an opportunity to enjoy programs and events, including free admission to all plays, musicals, and concerts that are not fundraisers or events sponsored by organizations like the Home and School Association or Band Boosters. Individual organizations connected to the school district may also accept Avon Grove Gold Cards for events and programs. The membership benefits also include free admission to regular season athletic events.

The Gold Card Club is one way that Avon Grove School District recognizes and honors senior citizen members of the school community,” explained Tom Alexander, the district’s director of educational support services. “By implementing this program, we hope to encourage an increased interaction between our schools and an important group of stakeholders — our senior citizens.  This program will also provide an opportunity for senior citizens to get involved with and see the inside of our schools.”

The Avon Grove Gold Card becomes effective on the date of issue and is a lifetime membership. The card is only valid when the member is present and membership is not transferable.

The memberships can be obtained by downloading and completing a Gold Card Club application from the district website or picking up an application at the district office at 375 S. Jennersville Road in West Grove.
