50+ Activity Centre

Stay healthy, keep smiling and be active. That’s what the sign outside Peachland’s 50+ Activity Centre says, and that’s exactly what its volunteers and attendees are doing right now. The brick building right across from the Peachland marina is usually hopping with all sorts of programs and plans. The centre is closed for now (it would be quite the task for volunteers to sanitize the facility after every group), but here’s an idea of what they’re 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 an email 50plusactivitycentre@gmail.com, call (250) 767-9133, or check them out on Facebook.
