Mount Royal MP Anthony Housefather lauded the work of the Côte St. Luc Senior Men’s Club in the House of Commons last week.
A large contingent of club members was on hand in Ottawa last Wednesday.
“The Côte St. Luc Senior Men’s Club is the largest senior men’s organization in Quebec,” Housefather said. “With over 520 members, it plays a huge role in the life of our community. Whether through its breakfast meetings, current events group, golf days, or bowling leagues, it keeps its members young and vibrant. They take care of each other and are a social network beyond compare.”
The MP added that the club began when the community’s World War II veterans were retiring and wanted to give back in other ways.
“Today’s members continue that tradition by participating in organizations like Volunteer Citizens on Patrol and assisting our Legion with its poppy campaign,” Housefather explained. “I was honoured to work closely with the club for many years as mayor and will continue to do so as an MP. May they go from strength to strength.”
