Our Story...
In 1989, a committee of older adults and local service club representatives worked with the Municipality to establish an activity centre for the older adults of Clarington. In 1992, Council established an advisory committee, which became the Clarington Older Adult Centre Committee.
In September 1994, this committee offered a program on Tuesdays at the Lions’ Centre on Beech Avenue for older adult members. Then a variety of programs were offered and many fundraising events and special events were held on significant dates. This “pilot project” continued for four years. The success proved the necessity for a facility and effective January 2nd, 1998, the Municipality agreed to purchase the Lions Club property. The Tuesday programs continued at the Memorial Park Clubhouse during the renovations.
The official opening, open house and dinner/dance celebration was held on Saturday September 19, 1998. The Clarington Older Adult Association continued to grow with increased membership and programs, which is a credit to everyone who has worked so long and hard to achieve the dream of a centre for the steadily increasing older adult population in Clarington.
After much consideration, the Municipality of Clarington made the decision to change the structure of older adult programming in the fall of 2015. On January 4th 2016, the Clarington Beech Centre opened under new management as the Bowmanville Older Adult Association; offering the same excellent programs and services. In January 2018, BOAA will celebrate our 2nd year as a registered not-for-profit charity with independent status. Without our dedicated members and community partners, BOAA would not be the successful organization that is it today!
