About the Bay Roberts Fifty Plus Club
Bay Roberts 50+ Club
The 50+ Club is a well organized and well run community group which supports activities for individuals in the municipality of Bay Roberts who are fifty year old and over.
Mr. Eric N. Mercer, President; Vice President Mary Tucker, Sect. Margaret Bradbury make up the current executive. They hold regular organizational meetings on the first Wednesday of each month.
Formation and Membership
The 50+ Club was founded in 1996 during a meeting in the former Bay Roberts town council chambers at 261 Water Street. The group had met in various locations before this particular meeting. When the town council office and chambers moved to their current location at the Western Union Cable Building, the former office building became available for the 50+ Club. The organization currently has seventy-five members who reside in Bay Roberts and surrounding areas.
The club maintains an active program that serves the needs of both the membership and the community at large.

"She had a real passion and talent for quilting and taught us so much," explained Betty Didham of Whitbourne, chairwoman of the Baccalieu Quilters Guild. "She was often the life of the guild and is greatly missed by all of us. Dedicating the show in her memory is our way of honouring her contribution and friendship."
