IN 1971 THE BOBCAYGEON SENIOR CLUB MEMBERS NUMBERED 40 AND MET FROM SEPTEMBER THROUGH JUNE EACH YEAR AT THE BOBCAYGEON LEGION TO PLAY CARDS.

WHEN THEY DECIDED THEY SHOULD GET A BUILDING OF THEIR OWN, THE OLD POST OFFICE NEXT TO LOCK 32, OWNED BY PARKS CANADA, WAS LEASED TO THEM FOR THE SUM OF $50.00 A YEAR. THEY DID THE NECESSARY RENOVATIONS TO MAKE IT SUITABLE FOR THEIR USE AND TOOK POSSESSION.

BY 1991 MEMBERSHIP HAD INCREASED FROM 40 TO OVER 300 RESULTING IN THE NEED FOR A MUCH LARGER CLUB HOUSE SO A BUILDING FUND WAS STARTED.

UNFORTUNATELY ALL THE GOVERNMENT GRANTS, FUND RAISERS, AND PRIVATE DONATIONS WERE INSUFFICIENT FOR THE CONSTRUCTION OF A NEW BUILDING.   AN ALTERNATIVE WAS SOUGHT AND, IN 1995, A POTENTIALLY SUITABLE HOUSE, LOCATED AT 100 HEAD STREET, WAS PURCHASED.  RENOVATIONS WERE STARTED WITH NINETY-SEVEN PERCENT OF THE LABOUR REQUIRED TO CONVERT THE HOME TO A CLUB HOUSE BEING DONATED BY CLUB MEMBERS.

THE OFFICIAL OPENING WAS JUNE 2ND, 1996. 
OVER THE PAST 19 YEARS CONTINUING CHANGES AND UPGRADES HAVE TAKEN PLACE KEEPING THE BUILDING IN CONSTANT REPAIR WHILE ENHANCING THE CLUBS AMBIENCE.
