chapter 55There are many chapters in life from childhood through to adulthood, the Bruce County Museum and Cultural Centre is prepared for those ready to experience 'Chapter 55, Recreation for Retirees'. Are you 55+ plus and looking for new and interesting recreational activities? If so, this fun workshop series is for you!

Beginning on September 20 the BCM&CC is holding a series of workshops entitled 'Chapter 55 Recreation for Retirees'. A committee of retirees has created ten workshops that highlight social, recreational and cultural activities that are available for retirees throughout Bruce County. Each of workshop has a theme such as art, health & wellness, music, and special guest presenters host them. Over the course of the workshops, attendees will sample a variety of activities helping them to discover new interests or maybe rediscover an old interest or hobby set aside while raising a family or concentrating on careers. Throughout the ten weeks, participants will receive information on what else is available in the Bruce County making it easy to pursue those interests following the workshops.

Chapter 55...Recreation for Retirees begins on Thursday, September 20 and will run each Thursday until November 22 from 1:00 p.m. until 3:30 p.m. Participants are welcome to attend the full series or select only the workshops that they find of interest. These workshops are all free; preregistration is required as space is limited and transportation can be provided for those requiring assistance. To register please call 519 797 2080, additional information can be found at This program is funded by the Government of Canada's New Horizon's for Seniors Program.
