Merry Christmas & Happy New Year

The Airdrie Over 50 Club Executive and Activity Leaders would like to wish all the club members a Safe and Happy Christmas season!

We hope you are all well and able to enjoy this season and the year ahead.

The club has once again returned to a full schedule of club activities, and we hope that those participating are enjoying their experience.

As you may already be aware we will be having our first Christmas Dinner on December 14, 2022, at 5:30pm. The menu includes a full turkey meal including dessert with music provided after that. There will also be Door prizes. Tickets are priced at $25 for members and $35 for non-members. Tickets may be purchased from Phyllis Pitz, Myrtle Brewster, Lynda Watfa, Shirley Mitchell, Carolyn Graham, and Doug Rothfus. They are also available on our Website,

Put on your party duds and come out and enjoy the season with us.

I am still looking for a few people to work the Count Room for our Casino dates of March 10 & 11, 2023. Please, please we really need this casino to work as those funds are necessary to the successful running of our club. I also have an opening for a General Manager on the Friday afternoon/evening shift (6:30pm-3:30am), and a cashier on the same time shift on Saturday.

There are a number of activities cancelled around the holidays and they are:

December 23 & 31 NO CRIB at 7pm

December 24, 28, & 31 NO CRAFT/PAINTING CLASSES

December 26 NO TABLE TENNIS at 9:30am

Military Whist on December 10 is having a potluck dinner before the game starts. If your last name begins with A-L, then please bring a dessert. If your last name begins M-Z, then please bring a savory dish, i.e., sandwiches, cold cuts, finger foods. Please be at the club before 6pm.

Crib on December 16 is also having a potluck before the game begins, so if your last name begins with A-L, please bring a savory dish; and if your last name begins with M-Z then you can bring a dessert. Please be at the club before 6pm.

Our AGM will be on January 18, 2023, so please don’t forget to renew your membership prior to that date so you can attend the meeting and have a vote.


I think the reason we are born with 2 hands is so we can pet 2 dogs at once.

A dog accepts you as boss – a cat wants to see your resume.

Oops … did I roll my eyes out loud?

Life is too short to waste time matching socks.

Wi-fi went down for 5 minutes, so I had to talk to my family. They seem like nice people.

If you see me talking to myself, just move along. I’m self-employed; we’re having a staff meeting.

I won’t be impressed with technology until I can download food.

Some people call me crazy. I prefer happy with a twist.

My Doctor asked if anyone in my family suffers from mental illness I said, “No, we all seem to enjoy it.”
