|New Noon Year's Eve event is Dec. 31 at Roeland Park Community Center|
Celebrate the New Year at noon during a new special event being offered by the 50 Plus Department of the Johnson County Park & Recreation District.
The event is called Noon Year’s Eve and is meant to show that you don't have to stay up late or pack into a crowded restaurant to ring in 2015. Participants will enjoy a catered lunch, followed by a balloon drop and 12 games of bingo. Bingo prizes include gift bags and gift certificates. To find this program in the JCPRD’s Activities catalog and online listings, browse first under 50 Plus and then under special events. In the catalog and when using the website’s advanced search, look for the keywords "holiday event."
Noon Year’s Eve will take place beginning at 11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Dec. 31, at the Roeland Park Community Center, 4850 Rosewood Dr., Roeland Park. The cost for this two-and-one-half-hour event is $15 per person.

While the JCPRD's 50 Plus programs are primarily for people who are age 50 or older, interested parties who have not yet reached that magic age may still be able to attend. Persons 18 and older who are interested in a 50 Plus class are invited to call the District's Registration Department at (913) 831-3359, and if space is available without forfeiting the place of a person over 50, their registration can be taken.
