On Wednesday the Rendez-Vous Centre was busy with a group learning Bridge and the Scrap Happy Quilters working away in the hall. But those activities are but two of the programs offered locally at the centre.

The Morinville Rendez-Vous Centre provides and maintains a facility to enhance the social and recreational quality of life for those 50 and over in Morinville and surrounding area.


Bridge is played Mondays and Thursdays from 1 to 4 p.m. The gathering is for those who play with confidence and who enjoy a relaxed but higher level of competition. Additionally, Morning Bridge takes place Wednesdays from 9 a.m. to noon. The centre also offers Bridge Lessons.
