Town asks residents to share personal memories of Sir John Colborne Seniors Centre

In celebration of the 20th Anniversary of Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors, the Town of Oakville is asking residents to share their personal stories, memories and pictures from the centre for inclusion in a commemorative book.

Residents are asked to drop off submissions to the Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors or email Colborne20thAnniversary@oakville.ca  Deadline for submissions is March 31, 2011.

“Were planning a number of special events for the month of June to celebrate our 20th birthday including a classic car show, 50s dance, movie night, 20 km hike, picnic and tons more,” said Nancy Beddoe, manager of Seniors Services for the Town of Oakville. “The full schedule of events will be available online and at the centre in April.”

Sir John Colborne Recreation Centre for Seniors is named after the first lieutenant governor of Upper Canada and officially opened its doors in June 1991. Since then, the centre has provided a wide variety of affordable programs for Oakville seniors. The centre has grown from 500 members in 1991 to 1,650 today. The centre is located at 1565 Old Lakeshore Road.
