Roblin Drop In Centre/50 & Over Club
The 50 & Over Club currently has 203 members, including 16 life members, and is run by a volunteer board of 13 individuals.
As the name suggests, in order to be a member you must be 50 years of age and older. A $12.00 annual membership fee allows members to spend their day at the Drop-In Centre and partake in all of the activities -- and there is never a shortage of activities! Pool and shuffleboard are available on a daily basis. Once a week, bingo and cards are offered. If none of these activities excite you, feel free to offer suggestions, as the group has taken on many projects such as making quilts and placemats.
There are also events for non-members at the Drop-In Centre. For example, the old-time dances, whist tournaments (held on the 3rd Saturday of the month) and square dancing (every Monday night) are open to all members of the community.
Over the years, the Drop-In Centre has hosted many annual events including the Mosaic Fashion Show and Meet The Grads Night.
The Drop-In Centre offers more than daily activities for seniors. Services such as the Community Help Centre and legal-aid, who make a stop at the centre twice a month, are also available.
