The Saskatchewan Century Club is an association of seniors who have reached the age of 90 years and are determined to continue living in as full and active a style as possible to the age of 100 and beyond. This type of life-style includes a variety of aspects to the term "active", such as: Physical, Mental, Social, Spiritual and Creative.
None of these are exclusive, each may have limitations, but the goal in each case is to do one's own best.
The club provides a network for nonagenarians who wish to establish new friendships and provide mutual support. Members hope, through example, to demonstrate the value of living for 100 years or more. Member benefits include: motivation to keep active, healthy and involved in the community; opportunities, through support and example, to to encourage others to lead healthy, active lives; special recognition and celebration at the age of 100 years; opportunities to keep in touch with other active Saskatchewan seniors.
The Saskatchewan Century Club was the "brainchild" of the late Dr. WM Riddell, the "father" of the University of Regina. The concept is being carried forward under the leadership of Ken Mitchell.
Spring teas have been hosted by the Lieutenant Governors in office over the last few years to honor the centenarians. We are currently gathering memories from those 90+ and plan to publish a book called 'A Century of Memories'. We have dedicated a page in Gray Matters to tell the stories of these centenarians.
The Century Club is administered by the Saskatchewan Seniors Mechanism. SSM ,assisted by SaskTel Pioneers, organizes outings for members in Regina & area. Saskatoon Council on Aging organizes outings for member in Saskatoon & area. We are looking for groups that would host events in other parts of the province.

Seniors & Isolation Survey
SSM is working with other partners in a project to reduce social isolation of older adults. To access the impact of our efforts we are inviting people 55+ to participate in a survey.
Please note this survey was in the July issue of Gray Matters. On page 2, two or the headings for questions 6, 7 & 8 were missing. Those are included in the attached survey.
You can also access the survey online https://uregina.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_ba15eZRa9MTg0e1
