Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors holding open house to showcase activities

Open house meant to attract new members will be Tuesday, March 5, at Bowen Park activity centre

An array of seniors activities happen all in one place, and Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors is putting them all on display.

The society is holding an open house Tuesday, March 5, at the Bowen Park activity centre.

“If you are 60 years plus, come on down and meet members and get information on the many classes that we have – carving, art, exercise, singing and others,” said Joanne Husband, Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors marketing director.

She said the auditorium and lobby will be set up with different tables and demonstrations so prospective members can get an idea of what the various classes entail and have any questions answered.

“You come down there and you pick up the flyer and you read all about it when you get home and you think, ‘well, I wonder what it’s really like, what they do in that class?’ and this way, you can ask me, ‘what’s the exercise class like?’” Husband said.

The open house will feature guided tours of the complex, refreshments and some entertainment. Husband said Nanaimo Harbour City Seniors is for people who are 60 years or older or who have a partner 60 or older.

Members pay an annual fee and after that, many classes come with no additional charge, though some classes taught by paid instructors have additional fees. Husband said almost every class and activity has room for more participants, so people can join right away.

The open house is March 5 from noon-3 p.m. at the Bowen Park activity centre. For information, phone 250-755-7501.
