In November of 1980, a Board of Directors was organized to represent the eight seniors organizations that existed at that time. These eight organizations were each operating independently from various facilities in Camrose.
The mission of that organizing Board was to build and operate a multi-use facility within the City of Camrose for use by Camrose and District seniors. It was accomplished with the generous help of the Federal, Provincial, County and City governments.
Construction began in September of 1983 and the building was officially opened on November 19, 1984. Since that time, the Society has provided a variety of programs and services to the membership and others in our community.
The Camrose and District Senior Centre Society has an office in Mirror Lake Centre, 5415 – 49 Avenue, Camrose. The Society is run strictly by volunteers, and sponsors 22 different clubs at the facility. There is something to do in the Senior Centre Society for everyone who is 50 years or over. There are bridge clubs, three different dance clubs, music jam, scrabble, cribbage, canasta, stick rummy, table tennis, pickle ball, floor shuffleboard, floor curling, Alberta 55 plus, Military Whist, Cam-Roses, the Golden Tones and a Pool club. Members of the various clubs work at the front desk to offer information to anyone who comes in. Our volunteer hours are from Monday to Friday, 10:00 a.m. to noon.
Membership includes participation in Club(s) activities and voting privileges at the Society’s Annual General Meeting. There are approximately 400 members of the Society at the present time. Currently, the Society boasts 22 Clubs which operate under its umbrella!
