The Marble 60+ Fellowship is a vibrant community of active adults from all over NYC who gather weekly for social, cultural, and spiritual events. Our members are as diverse as the city we live in, and all are warmly welcomed, regardless of religious background or affiliation.
Our group meets on Wednesdays from mid-September until mid-June for lunch, fellowship and entertainment. Lunch is at noon followed at 1:00pm by a musical performance or a program on a variety of topics including health, history, spirituality and tips for aging with grace and dignity. Our performers and lecturers are some of the finest New York City has to offer. Once a month we show a top-rated film. Please download our newsletter for a listing of our Wednesday lunch and entertainment offerings.

Stamp Outreach Project
The fellowship collects cancelled US and foreign stamps which are donated to the Sisters of the Holy Cross Ministry With the Poor of Notre Dame, Indiana. Commemorative and high-valued stamps are most in demand including both ‘used’ and ‘mint’ (un-cancelled) stamps. Leave 1/4 inch or more border of paper around all sides of the stamp. Drop off stamps on Wednesdays.
