Honiton Old Age Pensioners' Association was founded over 30 years ago.
For several years it was run by decorated war hero and honoured citizen Tom Crispin, who is a stalwart regular at the Senior Citizens' Centre. Mrs Robson said he had been a hard act to follow.
Remaining members may have one last get-together - a Christmas dinner.
