The Oldtimers Association was formed in 1941 with the initial purpose of planning regular banquets for those Vernon and District pioneers over the age of 55 who had lived in the area for 40 years or more. Membership fees were $1 per year. No records of the Association's activities exist past 1941. It is not known if the association was officially disbanded.
