Remember When? These two photos vividly display the long and successful history and growth of the Ponoka Rising Sun Club House in our community. Top photo was taken in 1984 when the first club house facility and programs began in 1984 in a laundry building along the highway at the north end of town, and then the second is the current very active Rising Sun Club House located at 5216-50th Street. Over that period of 34 years the vital support program has played host to hundreds of members, all of whom are mental health consumers, and look forward to taking in yearly social, employment, and learning programs and activities at the Club House and throughout the community.
