Forteniters Club was formed in 1974 to serve mental health consumers who had been hospitalized at Norristown State Hospital. It was noted by staff and volunteers at the hospital that many former patients were alone and lacked opportunities to socialize. The club was organized to provide opportunities for socialization and met every other Thursday, thus the name ‘Forteniters’.
Currently the club meets every Thursday from 4 PM to about 7:30 PM and once a year Calvary hosts the dinner at the club’s meeting and shares a meal with the members
