As the Ital-Canadian Seniors Association strives to be welcoming, our museum and drop-in centre in Edmonton are not only open to our members, but they are also open to Edmontonians, in general, and our surrounding municipalities.
At our museum, you can see exhibits about the “Coal Miners of Alberta” and more. Read our president’s letter to learn more about our museum.
You can also participate in numerous activities that our drop-in centre offers. For our members, volunteers have offered classes in sewing, knitting, crocheting, paper tole, and Italian cuisine. For the general public, our centre has held workshops and seminars that have dealt with various topics of interest.
We have even allowed other organizations to use our facilities for various needs. Some of the organizations that have used our facilities previously include various dance troupes and the following organization.
Teachers from high schools, such as St. Cecilia Junior High School, Cardinal Leger Junior High School, and O’Leary High School, have also been welcomed when they bring their classes to our centre to experience immersion in an Italian environment and learn to play bocce, which is a traditional Italian game that resembles lawn bowling.
Whether or not you’re a member of our association, know that we want you to feel welcome. If you’re interested in what our facilities can offer, contact us.
