Orland Township’s popular senior luncheons are returning, starting with the Thanksgiving luncheon in mid-November followed by the holiday luncheon in early December, according to the office of Orland Township Supervisor Paul O’Grady.
The format, location and capacity limits will change, due to pandemic social distancing requirements and masks will be required when guests are away from their tables and not eating or drinking.
Both luncheons will be held at the Orland Chateau, 14500 S. LaGrange Rd., Orland Park and will feature plated meals that include soup, salad and entertainment.
The November luncheon will be held on Thursday, Nov. 19 and will consist of a plated, traditional turkey feast and feature the entertainment of local singer Blake Alexander. A performer since childhood, Alexander’s shows cover a range from Frank Sinatra to Maroon 5 and everything in between.
A plated roast beef meal will be served at December’s luncheon, which will be held on Thursday, Dec. 3. Local crooner Nino Folino will entertain guests with his renditions of the music of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin and more.
“Our luncheons are a popular social activity for our seniors,” said Supervisor O’Grady. “We are happy to be able to host them again, following CDC guidelines, and provide an afternoon of socializing and entertainment after this long and difficult year.”
