In 1973 Alan Koehler of Calgary's Social Service Department suggested to the Alderman Gordon Shrake, who was President of the Southview Community Association, to start a Seniors Club. Working with Ed Laribay & Harry Gordon the club was started. In 1974 with Alderman Shrake they secured the Dover Field House as the permanent home for Greater Forest Lawn 55+ Society now known as GFLS 55+ Society.
