Come for the Programs... Stay for the People.
Christmas Luncheon a HUGE Success - and A Lot of Fun!
Our beautifully decorated auditorium was packed to capacity with members, friends and guests who enjoyed our delicious Christmas Turkey Luncheon. Perennial favourite crooner, Bob Jones... the 100 Voices Kindergarten class... and our very own CLSA "impromptu choral group" entertained guests with spirited renditions of songs of the season.
Festive Friends @ the Fitness Centre
Usually meeting to "burn off calories" in the Fitness Centre, friends dropped by to celebrate the season and to enjoy the friendships formed during their regular workouts... (and to share a tasty snack!)

Kudos and Encouragement From One of Our Members!
"CLSA is a real treasure for seniors. It's a place to meet other seniors and get involved in lifetime learning. I feel it is a privilege to have such a facility here in Edmonton. Tuesdays are free coffee days. Why not see for yourself!" - Bev M.
