Freedom 55ers

This dynamic group meets every Tuesday from 11:30 to 1:30 pm during the months of September to June. (Enter at the Albert Street doors).

50 – 60 friendly people in the age range of 55 – 98 years gather each week for either a fun “sandwich mix up” lunch or, for special occasions, a catered lunch, or a lunch out at a restaurant, followed by an activity, guest speaker or good old fashioned sing-along.

In addition, there are often day trips to local geographical areas of interest or local attractions, as well as bus trips to interesting Saskatchewan locations farther away.

The group celebrates “birthday day” one Tuesday per month – and everyone in the group who has a birthday in that month is feted with cupcakes and other treats.

Aimed at “retired” members of the Regina community in their mid to late 50’s and beyond, this group is open to any seniors in the age group who wish to join and take advantage of friendship, fun, hilarity and Christian fellowship. You do not have to be a member of First Presbyterian Church to join this group.

Activities include “gentle gym”, “line dancing”, clog dancing demonstrations, Tai-Kwon-Do demonstrations, Irish and Highland dancing demonstrations, and much, much more.

Guest speakers give talks on subjects from missionary work, to seniors health issues, information on other faiths, nature, gardening, seniors’ self defense courses, and a wide and interesting variety of other topics. Visits from touring choir groups, puppet shows, instrumental groups and theatre performers round out the action.

There is always something to do and learn/talk about! Drop in any Tuesday and meet some of the real “characters” that make up this enchanting, warm, loving and diverse group!

The group coined its name in salute to a former life insurance company TV ad concept about life and fun beginning to really take off once you retire or reach the age of 55.
