What’s the Peachland 50+ Centre all about?

Operated by the Peachland and District Retirement Society, the 50+ Centre (at 5672 Beach Ave) is a social hub whose members are age 50 and better. 

Through the activities they host, from artist groups, to games (bingo or chess, anyone?) and the annual rose show and Christmas celebrations, the centre is usually hopping with activity.

The Variety Singers are known to fill the room with lovely music and appreciative audience members. Local quilters, artists, and bridge enthusiasts can be found here, too.

It’s all about bringing together Peachlanders of all ages, and thanks to volunteers, the 50+ Centre’s potluck dinners and pancake breakfasts are popular family events.

If you want to reach out, you can email 50plusactivitycentre@gmail.com, call (250) 767-9133, or check out their website or their Facebook page
