2014 Minister's Seniors Service Awards
On June 4, 2014, Catherine Blink and Jean Helland accepted a
Seniors Service Award on behalf of Sherwood Park 55 Plus Club. Associate Ministers
of Seniors, George VanderBurg and Dave Quest, presented the award.
Celebrating its 40th anniversary, the Sherwood Park 55 Plus
Club is a place where seniors can socialize and participate in recreational
activities. The club started from meager beginnings, meeting in the basement of
a small building, but quickly grew when the members fundraised to upgrade the
facility and construct an addition that accommodates 250 members.
The centre offers many different recreational activities,
arranges guest speakers on a range of topics, and has specialized areas to play
pool, read, and watch television.
The Club operates with member volunteers. Our Club is a success because of our volunteers.
2014 Pride of Strathcona Award
On June 23, 2014 Strathcona County presented the 2014 Pride
of Strathcona Awards to Sherwood Park 55 Plus Club.
The Sherwood Park 55 Plus Club began 40 years ago in the
basement of the Log Cabin. Over the years, it has grown to offer many
activities for Sherwood Park and surrounding area residents. There’s the Christmas Craft Sale, the Strawberry Tea,
and outings such as Saturday supper at a local restaurant. There’s always
someone to lend a listening ear and support. This welcoming club has made a
positive difference for many over its long and active history.
