Borden Friendship Club
May 2017
The Borden friendship club had a good year!
  • Membership has increased to 80 members and is a very active group.
  • Meetings are held monthly on the 2nd wednesday at 2 pm (no meeting in July or August)
  • During the winter we hold bingos monthly, Kaiser Tournaments and Crokinole Tournaments are also held. Some of the proceeds from bingos have been used to subsidize an outing for our members, for example an evening at a Dinner Theatre.
  • There is a potluck supper once a month, with entertainment and birthday cake (except in July)
  • Twice a year he hold a Tea and Bake Sale, proceeds of the spring sale go to Telemiracle.
  • Forever in Motion classes are held 2-3 times per week, free for anyone to participate in.
  • The Friendship Singers meet weekly under the leadership of Marlene Derbawka.
  • Once a year we invite other local Seniors Clubs for a supper and entertainment.  We also enjoy attending such events at our neighbors' Clubs.
  • Our members help with many projects in the Community, either by financial donations or by giving of our time.  We sponsor the Beautiful Borden project, and have made donations to the Fire Department and First Responders, Borden Care Home, Action Bowl, Busy Bees Pre-school, Borden Community Centre Preservation Committee, to name a few.  We also have been sponsoring children in Mombasa through SOS Children's Village.
  • The Club Room is available for rent for any Community or Family Events
  • We have been fortunate to receive Grants which have been used for many upgrades to our Friendship Room.
