Luncheon Club

The Luncheon Club meets the fourth Thursday of the month for lunch at an ethnic restaurant or one that is a neighbourhood favourite or unique in some other way. Members recommend restaurants that are reasonably priced and accessible via TTC and share in the responsibility of organizing lunches. Members are sent notices of up-coming lunches beforehand and must reply if they plan to attend. Most restaurants are small and space is limited so reservations are necessary. For further information contact club coordinator Pam Hitchcock.

Coordinator: Pam Hitchcock


Movie Club All LIFE members are welcome to join the Movie Club for monthly matinees. Membership is free and emails are sent to club members with complete details regarding each month’s film. Check the club blog to get a sense of the types of movies we enjoy: Many members like to get together at a nearby restaurant afterward. If you plan to join in the noshing and nattering, RSVP is required the Monday before the film. No need to RSVP if you’re not going to the restaurant.

Day:  First or second Tuesday of each month, depending on the arrival date of new films

Time:  Early to mid-afternoon

Location:  A cinema easily reached via TTC

Coordinator:  Terry Poulton
