Seniors in Pemberton no longer receive support from a paid Vancouver Coastal Health employee but in 2017 the Community Centre created a position serving both Youth and Seniors. This significant help includes the offering of space at The Rec (located behind the main Community Centre). Our PVS group work closely with the Centre to enhance the programs and some of the events and activities rely on Pemberton Valley Seniors Society.
Our calendar is filled with regular weekly activities including exercise programs, a painting group, 50+ choir as well as monthly lunches and special events.
There is a regular 'drop in' at noon on Tuesdays. On some Tuesdays a variety of programs are scheduled. For current information check the calendar under our Events Tab on this website. The 50+ Singers usually practice on the first and third Friday of the month from 1:00 to 2:30; new members are welcome.
There has been an active group of seniors in the Pemberton Valley since the 1988 when the first Lions Villa was built and in 1989 the residents formed a Senior Wellness group. Their first president was Sally Gimse and Marilyn McIvor looked after their health at that time. A Senior's Link paper was produced by Babs and Lorne Fersell and Phyllis Chandler persued grants for games, tables, chairs etc. Memberships totalled 25 and meetings, dinners, and celebrations were held at the Villa Common Room. Since then the group incorporated as the Pemberton Valley Seniors Society [PVS] in March 2005 and the constitution was amended to qualify for issuing Tax receipts for donations.
