Upcoming Events

Our centre Friends Over 55 (also known as Port Colborne Senior Centre) has been providing programs and support for local seniors and older adults for almost 60 years (Anniversary – Sept 2020) with the help of hundreds of volunteers over the years. During this new reality of COVID 19 changes have affected us all, our Centre has been made to close and members and participants have had to stay home and be safe.

Our Centre is independently run, only minimal funds come from municipal and provincial governments the majority from membership fees, special events, donations, program fees, no programs, no money. Because we do not know when we can reopen and how long it will take to get back to some kind of normal, it will be impossible to run programs in the normal way. Extra cleaning, distancing, and other considerations will have to be followed as we move forward. This being said, we will not be able to raise the normal level of funds that we were used to in the past which allowed us to remain relatively stable. So we ask for your help…Larry Olm of Port Colborne has graciously stepped forward to help our centre by creating a Go Fund Me Page that you can find below. If you can make a donation this will help us when we open and as we try to figure out how to move forward and provide programs and support in a safe manner. If you do not want to donate on the go fund me page, donations can be sent to the Centre (Friends Over 55 – 554 Fielden Ave. Port Colborne, ON, L3K 4V1. Thank you for your support, hope to see you at the Centre soon….


Due to the COVID 19 Virus the Centre will be Closed Until Further Notice

(we are not sure how long this will be, stay tuned for details)

All Programs, Breakfast, 80’s Dance Party, Senior Driver’s Test, Income Tax Clinics, etc are cancelled during this time.

Sorry for the inconvenience but it is for the health and safety of our friends and workers. Stay home, stay safe, we will all get through this situation and enjoy our freedom and fun soon…(if you have tickets for any upcoming event that are cancelled, keep them, we will either reschedule or give refunds where needed.)

Thank you
