Golden Anchor Seniors' East Gwillimbury

About Our Club

The Golden Anchor Seniors' Club was officially formed on July 25, 1985. We are a Social Club for seniors 50+ in East Gwillimbury and neighbouring communities. Non-members are welcome to enjoy all club activities, however our club does offer financial subsidies to certain activities throughout the year, so it pays to be a member.
Club activities include: bid euchre, euchre, high/low bid euchre, crazy canasta, day trips, special events dinners, dinner theatre trips, and of course our widely participated "quarterly bid euchre tournaments" . Please check our calendar of events
Club membership is only $10.00 per year, plus additional user fees for certain Club activities. We are located in the Golden Anchor room, downstairs in the Holland Landing Community Centre, 19513 Yonge Street, Holland Landing.
The club has a close relationship with the Town of East Gwillimbury. We are a volunteer based club and through our annual membership and user fees, we are able to provide most of our own equipment and supplies.
Our club provides a valuable service to the residents of East Gwillimbury and neighbouring communities by giving seniors a place to meet other people of their age group.
The social network and good fun provides members a sense of belonging. We are a Character Community Organization.
