|Information||Rosedale New Horizons Seniors Club was formed October 12th, 1976. We, the club members, represent a group of people (aged 50+) who meet primarily to have "fun".
Besides the regular meetings, New Horizons enjoy bus trips, card parties, variety shows, picnics etc. Presently the Club has about 90 members ranging in age from 50+ to 90+.
The Club provides the clubroom to the Department of Health to administer flu shots to club and community members. During the Lenten season six soup kitchens are held at the clubroom to support World Poverty. The club members donate items to the local food bank. In 2002 the Vial of Life Program was put into effect for the club and community members. (See below for more on the Vial of Life.)
When called upon, club members participate in the practice evacuation drill at the Rosedale Home for Special Care; we involve the community in as many of our projects as possible such as our smoke free Friday Night Card Parties. They have been very successful and if you haven't attended or aren't a regular- come out and see what you are missing. By being an active member of the club, the club will be good for you and you will be good for the club.
