Vintage Characters

Welcome to the Society of Vintage Characters!

Vintage Characters is a seniors group created to support seniors by identifying activities, stimulating involvement and reinforcing the notion that seniors are a valued part of the community.

Created recently and currently numbering 35 members, it would be fair to say that the group is still very much finding its way and defining its focus.  Currently, however, we are intent on supporting opportunities for physical activity, visitations to point of interest in the Edmonton area, interaction with community and ultimately, travel beyond the Edmonton area.  Consideration is being given to our organization becoming an advocate for seniors.  This would involve identifying seniors’ issues and determining the appropriate avenue for advocating on these issues.

The Society has been approved for a casino in 2019 and it is anticipated, funds raised will significantly subsidize planned seniors’ trips. We are in the process of planning our first trip which will take place in 2020.

Finally it should be said that we will be able to donate $5000.00 per year to a charity of our choice.  Currently we are volunteering at the Food Bank on a bi-monthly basis.

We are open to feedback, ideas and expressions of interest in becoming a member.  For further information please contact Gerry Hofs.
