Friends of Bow Cliff ~ Celebrating 36 Years!

36 years ago, several members of the Spruce Cliff Community came together to discuss options for programs/services for seniors in the area. On December 19, 1975, the Spruce Cliff Seniors came into being. (The name was changed to Bow Cliff Seniors in 1976.)

Friends of Bow Cliff ~ Celebrating 36 Years

 Since that time, BCS has provided a community gathering place for seniors from all over Calgary. We hold exercise and art classes, host bridge, cribbage and bingo games, serve a weekly lunch and bring people together through our partnerships with groups like the Alberta Handicrafts Guild and Calgary Dollars.

We’ve also had our share of challenges (the 1989 fire) and successes (taking on the building lease) that have kept us going. Funding has been its own challenge, and so this year we’re asking people to step up. We’ll be spending the next few weeks sharing our top five reasons why you should donate now and become a Friend of Bow Cliff in 2012.
