A new president was announced earlier this week at Emerson New horizon Club.

"We annually elect new officials or people to sit on the board, the existing president was the only one that wanted to step down and I was asked to take over," says Robyn Copeland, current president for the New Horizon Club.

Copeland says that the organization is targeted to residents over the age of 55, but is often used for several different functions in the area. It's a smaller gathering place than the communities Complex and comes at a lower cost.

In the past year the club has partnered with the area school, bringing students into the club to learn how to play shuffle board and cribbage with the seniors, in a attempt to use the facility as much as possible.

Copeland talks with news Reporter Rochelle Rawdon about the clubs recent and future upgrades.
