The Evergreen Club, a social recreational organization for adults 55+, invites community members from across the Comox Valley and beyond to come see what it is all about. The Open House is Wednesday, Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Florence Filberg Centre, 411 Anderton Ave, Courtenay.

There will be demonstrations, activities, info booths, entertainment, complimentary refreshments and door prizes. Guests can try carpet bowling, throw a baseball, try table tennis, floor curling or throw some darts. See how Mah-jong or Mexican Train is played, ask about the club’s music groups or try creating an art project. Stop to admire the many craft groups as they work on their current projects.

Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about the programs, dining lounge, members’ bus trips and special events.
