Many people have told us they would like activities for seniors. Bridge, walking groups, coffee & conversation, exercise classes and general interest classes are just a few of their great ideas to help bring Beddington seniors together.
If you would like to create a Seniors’ group in Beddington, then BHCA would like to help! Contact us.
In the meantime, there are two well-established seniors’ programs that are close to home, with a wealth of activities to choose from! For now, it appears that the Confederation Park 55+ program is open for business.
Huntington Pioneers Association operates out of the lower level of the Huntington Hills community building, on the corner of Centre Street and Beddington Blvd. It is described as “…a warm and welcoming club promoting activities, social interaction and community involvement that is safe and accessible to all seniors 50+. We host regular activities and classes throughout the week such as Coffee and Chat, Yoga, Field Trips, Art Classes, Pot Luck Suppers, Movies and Popcorn, Cards, Line Dancing, Hand Bells, Soup and Bun Lunches, Casino Outings, a special event most every month and we arrange travel and tours.” Drop in for more information.
“Confederation Park 55+ is the second largest older adult centre in the city of Calgary. More than 740 older adults stay active through participating in 35 classes per week in activities like music, dancing, art and card playing. We’re serious about promoting a fun and lively atmosphere because we take health and well-being seriously. We respond to the needs of older adults by connecting them with opportunities for social interaction, education, and volunteerism through clubs, classes and activities. Everything we do is designed to promote mental and physical well-being – and to have fun while we’re doing it.”
