Name of creator
Bedford Leisure Club is a volunteer-operated society that hosts leisure activities for its members from October-May of each year, including: the Bedford Leisure Club Orchestra and Choir, cards, social events, and workshops. The Club was originally organized for Bedford seniors in 1970 by local church leaders as the Life Begins at Sixty social group. The group’s name was changed to the Bedford Leisure Club in 1978 when it was incorporated after receiving grants from New Horizons and other organizations. From 1990 up until 2020 the Club has shared a municipally owned facility with the Bedford Lawn Bowling Club.

Immediate source of acquisition
Donated to the Municipal Archives September and November 2020 via Margaret H. Embree, secretary for the Bedford Leisure Club.
