History – Then
Moose Jaw & District Seniors Association was started in 1989 after working with the City of Moose Jaw, Moose Jaw Housing and Senior Citizens Action Now. We them amalgamated with the XYZ Society and negotiations began. The City of Moose Jaw rented us the old Eaton’s Building the main floor and
basement and Moose Jaw Housing took the top 2 floors to house 26 seniors suites. With raffles, fundraising, donations, grants and the City of Moose Jaws help, we opened our doors.
Since then, our basement is now our “Sports Level” with an indoor walking track, workout equipment, carpet bowling and table tennis. We have a large auditorium (XYZ Auditorium) for rentals, banquets, dances etc. along with our small hall (Card Room) and Timothy Eaton Café – serving breakfasts, lunches & catering to Seniors and the Community. We have sublet in order to have an on site day spa (Avanti) owned and operated by Vicki Wadsworth. Moose Jaw & District Seniors offers a multitude of programs from Art Classes, Cards, Billiards (4 pool tables), Ceramic Classes, Fitness Classes, Golden Voices Choir, Floor Shuffleboard and Jam sessions, just to name a few.
