Exciting times for PAL!

After two years of planning, Pembina Active Living (55+) (PAL) has finally begun to set in motion a project to produce a film about PAL, with the use of a central figure and supporting cast from our members and the community.  We want you to know what is behind the name and why we are important to your community and you.  Filming has begun and will continue this summer.  We are delighted to have Buffalo Gal Productions make this a professional showcase for PAL.

With the many programs, clubs, presentations and volunteer opportunities PAL has to offer, we are looking into yet another new endeavour.  Day trips!  Our first trip was to Club Regent casino and from all accounts, a smashing success.  The bus was full and everyone had great ideas about future trips.

Pembina Active Living is a registered charity, and as such, spends much of it’s time planning and executing fund raising initiatives.

Keeping such a vibrant organization financially viable requires commitments from it’s members and the community, so we ask you to keep us in mind.  We have begun a new program to garner funding and there are many ways to help us out.

  • You could donate by way of cash or a cheque
  • Donate on line through CanadaHelps,
  • Commemorate a loved one,
  • Designate PAL as a tribute gift, as an option to flowers at a funeral.
  • Identify PAL as a Legacy Gift in your will or insurance policy
  • Gifts of things that are needed (a home of our own, an industrial copier, a 4 drawer, lateral, sturdy, locking filing cabinet with keys.

More information and details about PAL and giving are on our website at pal55plus.ca.

If PAL is missing in your life, come to our Annual General Meeting on Thursday, June 21st at 1pm.  Our address is Grace Christion Church (no religious affiliation) at 50 Barnes St., behind the Superstore.  Bring a friend or come and make one.  Free refreshments will be served and you can see what we are all about.
