City encourages local residents to check out Rutland Seniors’ Centre

Whether you are new to the area or just haven’t had a chance to stop by yet, now’s the time to check out the Rutland Seniors Centre, say city recreation officials.

“We’ve been offering programs, activities and a place for seniors to socialize here for a number of years,” said Louise Roberts-Taylor, community and neighbourhood programs manager.

“It’s a friendly and fun place for those 50 years and better along with other members of the community to come together to enjoy recreation and educational opportunities.”

The City of Kelowna’s recreation and cultural services department and the Rutland Seniors’ Society will host a public open house Saturday, Oct. 20, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rutland Seniors Centre, 765 Dodd Rd.

The community is invited to attend the open house and learn about the recreational programs available for seniors and the general public.

The day will include demonstrations, displays, program information and art and quilter show.

Visitors will also enjoy music from the Old Time Fiddlers and refreshments served by the non-profit Rutland Seniors’ Society.

The Rutland Seniors Centre is a multi-aged recreational facility with approximately 890 members. It offers about 35 programs every week including dancing, painting, table tennis, quilting, bridge, badminton, carpet bowling, pickelball, cribbage, billiards, bingo, yoga and fitness classes.
