Welcome to the Central Lions Seniors Association (CLSA). Our aim is to provide a welcoming environment for persons 55 years of age and older by presenting exercise, art, music, and educational classes that enrich mind, body, and spirit to enhance longevity and quality of life.
CLSA is an independent, non-profit society formed in 1979. Our programs are made available through registration, club fees, donations, and general fundraising. We rely on our generous and dedicated volunteers who support our efforts every step of the way.
Seniors of every age, interest, and fitness level will ﬁnd something to enjoy at CLSA. We invite you to come to CLSA for the programs, and stay for the people!
Have you noticed our NEW Logo?
Our new logo was created by talented graphic artist Andrée-Ann Thivierge of Jellyfish Design. The graphic features a prominent lion’s head within a letter C, a reference to the (Central) Lions Club International, our founder. The classic lion profile symbolizes the pride and strength of our community. A new, easy-to-read font was also chosen to ensure the CLSA identity remains strong and consistent across different mediums.
Our members contribute and participate in our community life through activity and social engagement and live active lives in their golden years.
Engaging mind, body, and spirit to enhance quality of life.
