CLUB 50 & TRIPS
Our Club 55+ is now Burlington Club 50! The Club was established in 2004 with the support of the Parks &
Recreation Department for active Burlington residents ages 50 and over. It was designed to keep the mind and
body occupied. It is a no pressure atmosphere and the need to be good at the activity does not apply. What is
important is that members enjoy the activity, stay active and get to know other members.
Winter Program Schedule
The Club 50 Executive Board has announced the following program schedule for the winter months. All pro-
grams are open to both men and women. Most programs are ongoing; others start throughout the winter. Most
activities are free, and those that require a fee will be on a pay-as-you-attend basis. Please call the Parks &
Recreation Office to register and become a Club 50 member.
