Valley East's Own Older Adult Centre

by Robert Kirwan (far right of the photo)

I always knew that the LE CENTRE CLUB AGE d'OR DE LA VALLEE, or as I call it in English, THE GOLDEN AGE CENTRE, was an integral part of life in the Hanmer - Val Therese area, but it wasn't until I attended one of their monthly luncheons that I realized the true extent of this magnificent organization.

Shown with me at lunch, in the photo above, are on the far left, Henry LeBouthiellier, an Executive member of the Board of Directors, and Gerry Chartrand, Treasurer. Also sitting at the table with me on this day, shown in the photo below, were, from the left, Eva Mazerolle, Councillor on the Board of Directors, Michelle Cote, on placement from Collage Boreal, and Gilles Rieux, President of the Centre.


The Golden Age Club puts on a great luncheon for the entire community - both members and non-members are welcome - on the 3rd Thursday of every month. For $5.00 you get soup, sandwiches and dessert, and get to spend an hour or so enjoying great conversation with friends and acquaintances.

The Club received its Charter on February 17, 1975 and has been adding to the quality of life of Valley East ever since. Anyone 45 years of age and over, living in the Greater Sudbury Area is welcome to join the club for an annual membership fee of only $15.00. 

Let me take you on a tour of the facilities to show you the excellent facilities that are available to you for this $15.00 membership fee.

During the luncheon, Gilles Rieux, President of the Golden Age Club, and Gerard Chartrand made a special presentation to Michelle Cote, a placement student from Collage Boreal who was finishing off a three month work assignment at the Golden Age Club. Everyone was impressed with Michelle and wished her the best of luck in her future career in Social Work.


Every time The Golden Age Club holds a luncheon, they award two free tickets for the next month. The two winners on this day were Loretta Dennis above, 
and Collette Riopel below.


As you can see from the photo below, the monthly luncheon is always a popular event. Here you see some of the close to 100 people who attended the lunch on April 20, 2006.
