Drive Happiness

Drive Happiness is a non-profit organization that seeks to enhance mobility and connect older adults to the resources needed to live and age well. Through its Seniors Assisted Transportation Program, older Albertans with health issues or limited income can request a ride to medical clinics, businesses, recreation facilities, and wherever else they need to go. Rides up to 40 kilometres or 90 minutes cost $10, and they are provided by friendly volunteers who are screened for a clean driving abstract, a vulnerable sector police check, and a well-maintained vehicle. To become a volunteer, please visit drivehappiness.ca/volunteering/.

Drive Happiness also offers several programs beyond its ride service. Volunteers deliver groceries, medical equipment, and other essential items straight to members’ doors. The organization also provides free rides to immunization appointments for people of all ages living in Northwestern Alberta through its Driving Rural Access to Vaccines (DRAV) initiative, which received funding from the Public Health Agency of Canada.

Leduc Square Dance

FREE Open House: Sep 21, 2022,
Time: 6:45 pm
Place: Telford House
Address: 4907- 46 Street Leduc

Contact info:

No Partner? No problem!
We are not a couples club. People generally dance the first and last tip with their spouse or 
partner, but in between we make sure everyone gets on the floor.

Costumes Optional
The colourful traditional square dance costumes (crinolines and flared skirts for ladies, western 
wear for the men) are optional. Dressy casual is fine.

What if I have 2 left feet? You’re in luck! Square dance has no fancy footwork to memorize -- 
simply take one "shuffle step" to each beat of the music .

Economical Night Out
An evening of square dancing is much less expensive than a gym pass, going to the movies, or a 
dinner out.

No lead/follow
Because we dance in a group, each person does his or her part. If you get lost, you'll have
lots of help.

Modern square dancing uses a wide variety of music – pop, traditional country, Broadway 
musical,contemporary country, classic rock — even Motown, techno and hip-hop. Something for every 
toe to tap to.

Featuring international professional caller Gary Winter
