About Us

Rural 60 Plus was organized by a group of 10 rural seniors in 1982, renting space in the former Pineview School just east of Kakabeka Falls.  The organization went on to bid for, and successfully purchase, the 3-room school in 1987, renovating and expanding it over the years to better suit the activities of the growing membership.

Mission Statement: 

The mission of Rural 60 Plus is to support the independence of older adults, enhance their dignity and self-respect, and promote their participation in all aspects of community life.

The seniors’ center is managed by an elected 10-member board of directors who meet once a month, normally on the first Friday of the month, at 9:30 a.m.  These meetings are open to the public.
