Meetings typically begin with refreshments and include guest speakers, presentations, or a special events. Sometimes they are followed by a complimentary movie or informal games. 

In addition to meetings, the Piedmont Seniors go on monthly excursions to locations of interest throughout the Bay Area and beyond.
