Stittsville Friendship Club
A FRIEND is one of THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN BE
and one of THE BEST THINGS YOU CAN HAVE.
Our sole objective is to provide more social activities for older adults (50+) and seniors (65+) in the Ottawa area and to encourage interaction within the community.
Our current activities include exercise classes, bridge and euchre card groups, shuffle board, monthly luncheons including local entertainers, excursions and trips to theatres, plays, comedy shows and other places of interest, and support for community charities.
Our Club was established in 1982, currently has 225 members and is growing. We currently have members from Barrhaven, Richmond, Carp, Stittsville, Kanata North and Kanata South and further south in Goulbourn, Munster and Ashton.
We welcome all ages and we will continue to structure existing activities and introduce new activities as requested by our members.
We are looking for new members and asking for more volunteers to help us manage activities, coordinate trips and excursions, assist with marketing and recruitment, Chair several Committees that are currently vacant and prepare themselves to fill Executive Positions.
Membership provides a large base for friendship and a variety of activities for our members. Annual Membership is $20.00 with an early bird discount of $5.00 if membership is paid between September 1 and January 31 each year..
Membership also provides opportunities for volunteers to help grow our Club. Join us by contacting any executive member.
