History of the PEI 55+ Games Society

The Prince Edward Island 55+ Games Society was formed in 1997 through the initiative of Ted Lawlor and Sharon (Knox) Renner.

The first games were held in Kensington in 1998. We currently organize both Winter and Summer Games which are held annually. Past host communities have been: West Prince, Summerside, Borden, Cavendish Resort Municipality, Cornwall, Charlottetown, Stratford, and Montague.

Currently the Summer Games are held in September while the Winter Games are held in February and rotate among Summerside, Cornwall, Charlottetown, and Stratford.

We also support regional games in Eastern Kings and West Prince.
