Shortly after their club teamwork began, Jack and JoAnn entered into a marriage partnership, too. And the club’s membership grew to hundreds. For the past few years, they have held late-summer luaus as well as special holiday events, including a gala New Year’s Eve party. Saturday night’s bash is being limited to 100 persons. Singles and married couples are all welcome. Island garb is optional, but a king and queen will be chosen for best costumes, and there will be prizes. LANCASTER – Back in 1999, two people had a dream, and the reality of that dream will be in evidence Saturday at J&J Social and Travel Club’s luau to celebrate its sixth anniversary. Jack Cohen and JoAnn Sablan were not yet married when they came up with the idea for an organization they wanted to offer other people in their age bracket. But they made a good team, so they started the club for seniors that answers all their social needs. “I never would have met and become friends with all of you if it hadn’t been for J&J. I’ll always be grateful for that,” member Mort Kadek said at one of the card nights. The conception was for people age 40 or older to come together several times a month for potlucks, game nights, dances, movies, dining, discussions and mixers. Tickets are $12.95 for club members and $14.95 for nonmembers. For location information and to make reservations, call the Cohens at (661) 267-2586. Club membership is $27.50 per year and guarantees a 5 percent discount on club activities. – Bettie Rencoret160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
