October 20, 1982.  The doors to Jubilee Place were officially open.

The purpose of the society was to construct, operate (without profits to its member) maintain, lease and managing one or more low-rental housing projects for elderly citizens.

With a board of directors having a membership of five, the majority of directors are to be from the Rotary Club of Trail. 

Ed Nichols was the longest serving member:  1982 to 2015.  For Ed, service-above-self was not only a motto of Rotary, but it was a way of life for Ed.  In times of good and poor health, Ed always had time to play a leadership role with Jubilee Place.  Within months of  Ed's passing in early 2015, he took on the task of assembling a new board of directors; Ed had not been well for a number of years.  He was determined to serve on the board as long as he could -and that, he did.  In his letter of resignation dated December 30, 2014, Ed wrote, "My last day of service as President will be Friday, January 2, 2015."  This was the day that Ed passed away.
