Welcome to the Griffiths Centre!
At the Griffiths Centre we provide programs and activities for seniors in the Black Diamond and Foothills area to meet their recreational, health and social needs. The Griffiths Centre is woven into the life of the community and participates in a wide range of community events – from hosting the local women’s choir to providing the venue for the gingerbread house competition during the annual Christmas Light Up celebration.
For more information on the range of programs and activities offered at the Centre, please visit our “Scheduled Activities”.

The Griffiths Centre is a not-for-profit charitable organization located at 122 Government Road in Black Diamond, Alberta. The Griffiths Centre is wheelchair accessible.
Our quarterly meeting & BBQ held on Saturday, June 10th to commemorate our 50th anniversary was a great success despite the rain.
The Meeting was well attended and several projects,
both past and future, were discussed.
The BBQ consisted of great home-made burgers (thanks to
Anne-Marie supplying the meat), smokies, several salads, and,
of course dessert for our 50th anniversary, was attended by
86 Griffiths Centre members.
The BBQ unit was provided by the Foothills Lions Club and manned
by two very experienced chefs, John & Barry.
Thanks to everyone who attended and those who helped with set-up
and organising this event, namely Charlotte, Caryl, Peggy, Sharon,
Audrey, Carol, Anne-Marie, Veronica, John, & of course, Bonnie.
The next quarterly meeting will be held on Saturday, October 7th
