Rockmosa Older Adult Centre

Conveniently located at the Rockwood Library, the Rockmosa Older Adult Centre hopes to offer a wide range of social, recreational and educational activities and programs geared towards our 55+ community.

We recognize that our population is aging, the number of seniors in Ontario will more than double by 2036 and it is our goal to encourage active, healthy and informed aging within our community.

The Rockmosa Older Adult Centre features a kitchenette, social gathering area with a television and gas fireplace, and ample folding tables and chairs.

HOURS OF OPERATION

Members with key fobs will have access to the Centre between the following hours:

Monday to Friday 8:00 am to 8:00 pm

Saturday and Sunday 9:00 am to 5:00 pm

The room will be open to non-members during drop-in programs, workshops and special events.

The Centre will be closed on Statutory Holidays.

What's Happening?

Upcoming Events:

Wine and Fun in Port Dover

Music in the Garden 

Featuring: Tragedy Ann, https://www.tragedyannmusic.com/

When: Thursday, August 16 at 7:00 p.m.

Where: Rockmosa Enabling Garden

Bring your own lawn chair and enjoy an evening of music in the garden!

Rooted in passionate vocal harmony, the music of Guelph folk duo Tragedy Ann inspires chills, provokes smiles, and reminds you to breathe. With the occassional nod to alternative blues and handshake contemporary folk-rock, Liv Cazzola and local Braden Phelan interwine the storytelling power of Tom Waits with the musical nuance of Mandolin Orange, crafting something simultaneously familiar and fresh.

This is a free event. Donations at the door are welcome to help support this event.
