The club has invited all area residents enjoying their golden years to join members at the Spruce Home Activity Centre on Wednesday for their 25th anniversary celebration.
“It’s called an invitational and all seniors in the area are invited, as well as different clubs from our district,” secretary/treasurer Louise Elliott said.
The laidback festivities begin at noon and will last throughout the afternoon.
Plans include a range of social activities as well as a beef-on-a-bun supper that will take place at approximately 4:30 p.m.
Attendees will have the chance to play card games such as Kaiser and whist and take part in a silent auction and Chinese auction.
Door prizes and card prizes will also be available.
“The main thing is to socialize and to renew old times -- like with the senior members that were there 25 years ago, there are few and far between,” Elliott said
“Some of them that have been (in the club) over the years will be in attendance,” she added. “So it’s just to socialize and to catch up.”
Like other area seniors’ clubs that will be in attendance on Wednesday, the Spruce Home Seniors belong to the Saskatchewan Seniors’ Association.

Since its inception 25 years ago, the Spruce Home club has provided a venue for area seniors to get together for good conversation, fellowship and activities.
Active members engage in a range of activities together, such as going on trips, playing golf, bowling and taking part in general exercise sessions.
Looking back over the club’s history, Elliott noted the changes that had taken place in the village of Spruce Home through the years.
“Spruce Home has changed a great deal since 1989,” she said. “There used to be a store here and a post office and a meeting place to gather for coffee, and we don’t have that anymore.
“So this (club) helps with the seniors out there. We meet there once a week and we socialize and play cards and do activities.”
Registration to attend the anniversary celebration costs $5. Anyone interested in attending may contact Elliott at 306-764-7843 for more information.
