The SA Association of Retired Persons (SAARP) is divided into a national organisation and local social clubs. People who join a local club automatically become members of the national organisation.
The social club charges an annual membership fee to cover administration costs.
The Helderberg social club issues a monthly e-zine newsletter giving details of the next meeting, outing and other club and SAARP information. The club usually has a speaker once a month to entertain members on a variety of subjects, and this is free of charge to all members.
The club meets every fourth Monday of the month in the Methodist Church hall, Coronation Street, Somerset West.
Meetings start at 10am, but members are encouraged to come early to enjoy some fellowship over a cup of tea, coffee and biscuit at no charge. Meetings last for about 90 minutes. The next SAARP next general meeting is on Monday April 29.
