Mission Statement: To provide a community focal point where older persons come together in a safe and welcoming environment to be supported in their independence and encouraged in involvement with the community.
If you are over the age of 50 and live in Renfrew or the surrounding area the centre has something to offer you.
The Golden Age Activity Centre (GAAC) opened on July 2, 2013 with financial help from the Ontario Trillium Foundation, United Way, New Horizons grants and donations from community partnerships. It is governed by an Advisory committee consisting of seven members. There is one paid staff that coordinates volunteers, organizes educational sessions and programs and administers to the needs of the members and the Centre.
Membership entitles the client to attend at any given time. The cost per year from April 1st to March 31st is $20. This entitles members to participate in most activities free of additional charge. The centre provides opportunities for friendships to develop through the social, educational and recreational programs provided for the diverse and changing needs of seniors.
The Centre is open Monday to Friday 10:00 am to 3:00 pm and on occasional evenings and weekends for special events.
