Century Club

 

We are pleased to announce that Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, Queen of Canada,
has graciously agreed to be an honourary member of the Century Club.

***************************************************

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. A book called ‘A Century of Memories’ has been published. This book contains the memories submitted by those 90+.  We have dedicated a page in Gray Matters to tell the stories of these centenarians also.

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.  A Century Club in Moose Jaw has been established in the last few months. We are looking for groups that would host events in other parts of the province.

There is no charge for registration and ongoing membership in the organization. Download a printable version of the form. Adobe Reader is required to view this form.
