2014 memberships are now on sale. Our memberships are very reasonably priced compared to a lot of seniors' centres down south apparently, and you get a lot of services by being a member: hot lunch service, a lending library of books, wireless Internet service and the use of touch screen computers, use of our black and white copier for a nominal fee (not for copying 30 or more pages), use of the centre to play cards, play drop-in darts, floor curling, carpet bowling, seniors' bingo, embroidery, tole painting, etc.

We are open 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and the coffee is usually on and a puzzle on the go. We often have lunches and, of course, the Christmas Open House that are for members and their guests. Hopefully soon we will be able to offer foot care clinics again. As well, we hold presentations and workshops from time to time that are relevant to seniors and are for our members-usually free of charge! We were able to offer chair yoga to our members last Spring but unfortunately we do not have an instructor who is available to us for the times we need them. We'll just have to wait for a "retired" yoga instructor. But most of all we offer a lot of laughs and a good time.
