Club News/Updates

FIFTY PLUS


We realize most members of the Heritage Club, are on average much older that 50, the age when you can join.


Many of our members joined when the Club began, some 30 years ago, and of course were much more active than today, so our activities have changed to suit our abilities.


We would love to see our membership grow and know changes will have to be made to entice younger people to join.


Our facility has been renovated, upgraded and added to.


It is so welcoming , with the most spectacular view of the mountains, plus we have very easy access as we are on ground level.


We are presently in the process of planning a major addition to our building, which would give us room for more activities, such as pickle ball, floor curling, etc.


We have several activities we participate in weekly. They are card games, (crib, bridge, canasta, etc) pool, shuffle board, carpet bowling, music jam sessions singing group, and at various times throughout the year day time bus tours, to many different events, such as Spruce Meadows, Rosebud Theatre, Studio Bell, Museums, etc.


We also have a monthly potluck dinner followed by entertainment and once a month the firemen from the Springbank Firehall come and take our blood pressure.


(This is a complimentary service to us.)


We have several fun and interesting annual events at our Club.


In May we host a strawberry tea with our choir providing entertainment; July, Stampede breakfast; September, Outdoor Games day with corn and burger lunch; November Bake Sale and Lunch for Sale; Remembrance day Service and Lunch; Grey Cup Party and Dinner, also in December we have a catered Christmas Dinner followed by entertainment.


We would appreciate you taking time to answer the following questions and submit any ideas you might have which would be of interest to younger people.


1. What days or times would be more suitable for you?

3. If you were a member, would you be willing to help organize events or activities?
