RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- Hobbyists Unlimited will celebrate its 50th anniversary as a thriving retired men's organization with a staging of its original theatrical production, "Do Something: the Hobbyists Follies," on Thursday, June 9.

The show focuses on the origins and subsequent growth of Hobbyists activities over the years, with music and other stage antics performed by members, spouses and Hobbyist widows.

Hobbyists Unlimited is a group for retired and semi-retired men in the Ridgewood area. Would-be members must be sponsored by a current member. The group participates in at least 25 different activities, from a gourmet cooking group and a camera club, to bowling and bridge.

The group currently has 430 members, according to executive board member Bob Stevenson, and the average age is 78.
