Nipissing MPP Vic Fedeli was in attendance to congratulate the club on the work done.

East Ferris Golden Age Club was established in 1986 to bring about unity of all who have attained the age of 50. The club said it offers a spirit of friendship, respect and mutual help, social, recreational, educational and cultural activities, advocacy support for seniors along with comfort to those who require assistance.

A $150,000 Capital grant from the provincial government’s Ontario Trillium Foundation (OTF) in late 2022 allowed the club to install new pantry cupboards and countertops as well as to buy a new dishwasher and make needed electrical upgrades.

“This grant has helped to revitalize the club by providing a functional kitchen to provide meals for older adults in the community,” said Fedeli’s office in a news release.

The club’s president said Lyne Way-White said she is grateful for the funding received.

“Their support enabled us to revitalize our facility but also rejuvenate our community spirit,” she said.

“Together, we’re cooking up a brighter future for the older adults of our community.”

Fedeli called Club Action 50+ a valued part of the community.

“Our provincial government is proud to invest in needed kitchen infrastructure upgrades,” he said.

“We are fortunate to have this facility so close to home. It’s a space that brings us together; to keep us active and stay connected.”

OTF invested more than $110M into 1,044 community projects and multi-sector partnerships in 2022 in its “mission to build healthy and vibrant communities across the province.” The projects aim to enhance economic well-being, foster more active lifestyles, provide spaces for people to come together and connect and create a more sustainable environment.

“Non-profit organizations across Ontario deliver programming that makes a difference,” said Neil Lumsden, Minister of Tourism, Culture and Sport.

“That’s why funding that my ministry is providing through the OTF is so important. Our government wants to ensure that these programs and spaces remain the heart of communities across our province.”
