Are you an older adult 55+experiencing commitment issues?  Do you look around and see others engaged and active, enjoying hobbies, playing sports, keeping busy and feel like you are missing out?  Have you been unable to find “the one”?  The one special activity that will bring you a happily ever after?  At Silver Threads Service we urge you to not give up hope.  We are here to help you dip a toe into the dating…I mean activity pool.

This summer Silver Threads has a wide variety of activities available for drop in.   No need to commit to a week’s long series, no need to take an annual membership, you can try one activity one time.  If you like it come again, if you don’t move on to the next!

There are two locations.  Our Saanich Centre is located near Tillicum Mall at 286 Hampton Road.  With a full-sized auditorium, drop-in sports include table tennis, Carpet Bowling and the ever-popular Pickleball and are offered at a reasonable non-member fee between $5 and $7.

At the Victoria Centre, located near the Victoria Police Station at 1911 Quadra Street, monthly programs include Trivia Quiz, Music Bingo, while games of Mah Jong and Euchre include instruction.  The cost is $5 for non-members.

Both Centres have a Monthly Social, where you can enjoy refreshments and conversation facilitated by our Leaders.  Held from 1:30 to 2:30pm, the dates are July 4th at the Victoria Centre and July 25th at the Saanich Centre.  The fee is $2.  It will help you hear what others are doing and you can pick up a schedule while you visit.  As well, there is a choice of 8 different fitness classes with seated and standing options. Or for walkers, Indoor and Outdoor Walking Groups that accommodate a variety of fitness levels.  Be sure to check out the complete Summer Program Guide on our website Programs & Events | Silver Threads
