For 25 years, they've gathered on the same night, at the same time, every week.

A diverse group that includes judges and physicians, war veterans and homemakers -- some recently retired, some long retired, and some not quite retired, according to the group's co-founder, Dr. Robert "Doc" Watson -- they enjoy getting together each week to "dine out" at their favorite local restaurants.
