With the end of the year looming, more than 30 seniors from a local church met to close their joint activity last week.

Sunshine Seniors, based at the Congregational Church in Park Avenue, hosted their annual Christmas party on Wednesday.

The senior club has members from the church and the surrounding community.

Mavis Cupido, chairperson of the club, says they meet every Wednesday at the church. Weekly activities include short prayers and physical exercise.

“You have to be at least sixty years old to join the club. Our oldest members are 78 and 80, and our youngest member is 60. Sunshine Seniors is open to everyone in the community, not just members of the church,” she says.

In August, the club celebrated its 10 year anniversary.

The club aims to give seniors a place to enjoy the company of people who have similar interests, and to give them opportunities to enjoy a variety of activities like a day trip to the Elim Flower Festival, lunch or a high tea.
