who are at least 45 years of age and over are eligible to become members.

With the proceeds of our Lottery licenses we make yearly monetary

such as schools, service clubs and the crisis centre. We believe in
working cooperatively with other clubs in order to benefit various groups
in our community. With the help of the local Lion's Club we hold a yearly
Children's Christmas Party that keeps growing in popularity every year.
Almost 200 children with parents and friends shared a visit with Santa in
2015. They enjoyed an afternoon of laughter, a free meal and the children

Municipal funding allows us to maintain and upgrade our aging building
and leverage other funding to help us purchase and offer special
programming such as lessons in Ballroom Dancing, Zumba classes and
hire a part-time qualified physiotherapy assistant to advise clients using
our exercise equipment room, but most of all, it provides the people of
Elliot Lake a much needed Recreation Centre and a hall rental venue for
special occasions and meetings.
