Administrative history

On December 19, 1975, Mrs. Kris Stephenson, Mrs. Helen Banks and Mr. Tom Burton met to discuss the founding of a senior choir in Moose Jaw. The Moose Jaw Senior Citizens Choir was formed and the Cosmo Senior Citizens Centre permitted the choir to use their space for practices Fridays at 10:00 am. Mrs. Olive Coupland agreed to be the accompanist for the choir. Twenty singers turned out for the first meeting and their first performance was on April 30, 1976 at the Cosmo Centre. In 1978 the name was changed to the ‘Sons and Daughters of the Pioneers Choir’. They provide entertainment to senior citizens’ homes and various other events throughout Moose Jaw and western Canada.
