In 1985, thirty-five people met in St. Peter's Catholic Church to form the 7-10 Club Society. The purposes of the inter-faith society are to provide free, hot meals to the needy, to provide opportunities for individuals or groups to become involved in helping needy people and to receive donations for use in helping the needy. The Society is also committed to providing services without discrimination or bias. Founding members included: Eleanor Chapman, Rose Zazonskowski, Patrick Leahy, Donald Bishop, Helen Hedberg, Patricia L'Hirondelle, Loretta Plett, Kay-Ellen Sharrock and Martin Godley. The 7-10 Club Society is governed by an elected board, is a registered charitable institution and is operated solely by volunteers.
