Pine Plains

PINE PLAINS — Adventure is out there for the young and the young at heart — and the town of Pine Plains is promoting activities for residents ages 55 and above with its Adventurers’ Club.

Every Wednesday, the club gathers at noon in the Community Room above the Pine Plains Free Library to make new friends and catch up with familiar faces over games, discussions, movies and more. Whether they decide to play a round of pinochle or listen in on a discussion about independent living, there’s always something to do. Sharing in potluck meals is a favorite pastime...
