Fort MAlden Golden Age Centre Logo

The Fort Malden Golden Age Centre (GAC) continues to move forward not only with their new location at 179 Victoria St. S., but also with their new executive members.

Recently voted in were Judy Palesh as president; Marcella Dufour as 1st vice president; Kathy Leeman as 2nd vice president; June McManemy as secretary; Peter McEwen as treasurer, and eight committee members including Jan Kelly, Rosalyn Edwards, Donna Bezaire, Rose Anne Laramie, Dorothy Thrasher, Karen McEwen, Judy McKinnon, and Debbie White.

Each week, Monday to Friday, mostly in the afternoon, they provide a friendly atmosphere and a variety of activities like, euchre, pepper, bridge, cribbage, mah-jong, bingo, and line dancing.  In addition, they've started to crochet mats from used and discarded milk bags for those who don't always have a warm and dry place to sleep.

For $10 a year, you can be included in the activities and they always welcome new members. Don't know how to play cards or one of the other activities, that's no problem - they can teach you. In addition, throughout the year they also have a few subsidized luncheons and a wonderful Christmas party. 

Whether you're new to our community or have been living here for years, all are welcome. For more information or to talk about joining, contact them by e-mail at, call 519-736-3367, or drop in at 179 Victoria St. S. around 12.30 p.m. Monday to Friday. You can also go to their website at
