Senior Holiday Party

The Senior Holiday Party is one of Durham's largest celebrations for Mature Adults (ages 55 or better). The party-goers are diverse, but they all have one thing in common - the desire to be entertained and to enjoy the company of long-time friends over dinner in a festive atmosphere. Mature Adults from across the Triangle will enjoy an evening of fellowship, dinner, and dancing at the Senior Holiday Party.
