Yellow Banana Club

What is a Yellow Banana and how do I join the club?  

A Yellow Banana is a committed bunch of YMCA2014-06-16_DPP_0192_RGB members who are in the prime of their life. They are no longer green, instead they hold a mature and wise demeanor.

They enjoy doing all sorts of activities, including: book clubs, volunteer work, trips and other recreational shenanigans.
