The 50/50 Draw tickets sold quickly before the holidays, and preparations are now in place to begin sales for the second 50/50 Draw scheduled for March 8th. The third and final 50/50 Draw is scheduled for May 10th, 2022.

Fundraising and awareness of the need continue to grow as local business leaders respond to the recently launched Corporate Appeal. This outreach will address the financial shortfall for the long term with a sponsor commitment of three years.
The Appeal has attracted a significant response from both individuals and corporate sponsors in its early days. However, there is much more to be done.
The Coming Together for All Appeal is based on local relationships, whether the source of contribution is corporate or individual. Building community partners is important, and it is not simply about writing a cheque. There must be value in what is proposed to promote and maintain this attractive community asset. Sponsorship and partnership must make sense. If several individuals and business owners can make this commitment, great progress will be made in preserving the building for safe, healthy use, and memorable enjoyment for all. The plan will only work if the community steps up to help.
The Seniors Citizens’ Club of Fenelon Falls is entrusted with the management and maintenance of the building they call home. A small and dedicated group of volunteer seniors offer years of experience in running this amazing organization and building. The club and its membership have served the needs of the Fenelon Falls seniors for more than 50 years. It is a not-for-profit, registered charitable organization with its entire operating budget coming from club membership fees, fees from club activities, donations, rental contracts, and fundraising activities.
Inquiries on how to assist are welcomed and encouraged. Please call 705-887-7007, visit www.fenelonseniors.com or check us out on Facebook for further information on the venue and the club membership and activities.
