Golden Age Club fonds

The Golden Age Club of Calgary was incorporated in Calgary, Alberta in 1951, two years after the Council of Social Agencies had determined the need for social activities for the city's senior citizens. In 1956 a recreation hall was built at 505-11th Street SW. The club sponsors a variety of events for its members, and since 1983 has been housed at 610-8th Avenue SE. The current building has a cafeteria, lounge, games room, crafts room, library, workshop and auditorium.
