Guelph-Wellington Branch has 230+ members. Our members are especially enthusiastic about our five major events each year and about joining our fantastic interest groups: book groups, live theater, movies, travel, drumming, walking, hiking, skiing, curling, and French.
Likely, more will be added this fall!

We invite you to join us as we enjoy the wonderful world of retirement. For more information, please contact Brigitte at
