Administrative history

The Welcome Wagon Newcomers Club was organized on September 1, 1977. Anyone who had been a member of Welcome Wagon Newcomers Club for two years and wanted to continue the socialization was eligible to join. The first executive were Muriel Wood, president; Bernie Krueger, vice-president; Jean Button, secretary; Gerry Bowler, treasurer. The objective of the Club was to promote sociability among members, allowing them to take an active interest in the civic, social and moral welfare of the community. Once a month they organized a bingo and lunch for the residents of Extendicare. Whist and bridge parties were held during the year and proceeds donated to worthy projects in Moose Jaw. In 1984 the “Welcome Wagon” was dropped from the name and the membership was opened to anyone wishing to join. In 1996 discussions were held regarding the Club’s future. There are no minutes of meetings after September 19, 1996.
