Senior Citizen's Association, Branch 69 (Sechelt) -- Album 2, Page 1

In 1968, the Old Age Pensioners (Branch 96) of Sechelt voted to give up their charter and join the Seniors Citizens' Association of British Columbia. The 138 members of the Branch received the charter on Jan. 16, 1969. Regular meetings and social events were held in the Legion's old hall on Mermaid St. on a rental basis. When the Legion decided to sell this property in 1974, Branch 69 was able to purchase it. Renovations and upgrades were accomplished over the years and many activities regularly took place in it. In 1982 a building committee was struck with the approval of the members to look into purchasing property with adequate parking for a new centre. In 1984 over 200 members voted to purchase a piece of property at the corner of Trail Avenue and Spindrift Lane, and a new Seniors' Activity Centre was built. Today, it is known as the Sechelt Activity Centre and open to anyone who wishes to become a member. The facility is also rented on a regular basis for various functions.
