The Golden Club of Fredericton has an active choral group, the Golden Club Singers, who sing traditional songs.

Typically, the group performs at retirement residences and at civic functions, however, this Sunday, September 25th they have offered their time and energy in support of fund raising for the replacement of the McAdam Railway Station roof.

The Singers are about 30 in number and they are a unison choir. And, in January of this year they introduced their new song book, with some 205 selections.

We welcome their support and hope you will as well. Please join us for a very exciting Sunday afternoon on September 25th from 1 pm until 4 pm.
