In July, 2015 a group was formed called Meadowood Seniors’ Club who were approved by The United Church in Meadowood to promote and organize programs for those in the congregation and surrounding community. The Executive of the Meadowood Seniors’ Club applied for a New Horizon grant to enhance facilities at The United Church in Meadowood where we meet. This application was approved in March, 2016 and during the summer work began on the enhancements. Two air conditioning units were installed, one in the kitchen, one in the MacAskill room. Presently there is research being completed on new flooring and upgrades to the MacAskill room. The cost of these projects is covered by the grant proceeds.
Currently The United Church in Meadowood has several programs underway which include primarily those 55+ years of age. The Meadowood Seniors’ Club hopes the participants in these groups will also be part of the Meadowood Senior’s Club. As we grow and attract more older adults from South St. Vital, we hope people will bring their personal interests and share with members of the Meadowood Seniors’ Club. Some of the ideas being discussed are Learning Bridge, Lunch & Learn sessions, musical entertainment etc. however organizers and leaders will be necessary.
If you or anyone you know would be interested in learning more about Meadowood Seniors’ Club please contact any member of the Executive.
