Mary Temple, a local senior, organized a small group of seniors to lay the groundwork for the new “ENCORE” Club. Seniors living near downtown were looking for a local gathering site that was easily accessible to those seniors who had limited mobility and transportation. St. Peter’s Church has become their new home. Members now have their own place, with the freedom to come and go, and to join any of the variety of activities that suits their individual needs.
New members are always welcome and may join at any time. The annual fee is $30. which includes any or all of the activities/events. For information about the “ENCORE” Club please call (905) 373-6252.
