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

NEW! The Centre will now be staffed Tuesday to Thursday, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Visit us and see what programming and services are available in your own community!

Board the coach and step back in time with Daisy Saunders, our tour guide, who will reveal the history and secret stories from Dufferin County and the Headwaters Region. We will start the day at the award winning Spirit Tree Estate Cidery in Caledon following by a leisurely drive where we will see some of the carved creations in Orangeville as we make our way to Grand Valley's Grand Spirits Distillery. Here we will have lunch in their speakeasy dining room with music and period actors that tell us of history and humerous tales of the area during the prohibition era. Finally we make our way to Adamo Estate Winery where we will be served samples as they tell us the story of this family owned winery in the beautiful Hockley Valley.
