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.


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.

Journal Sketching Workshop with Vita Keeling

First step, choose a subject…that’s easy!  Let’s just draw what we see, what you like.
Forget about making a “good picture”. Look around....slow down....notice common objects (a wine glass, door knob, a chair).  There is NO pressure to make it right…just the joy of drawing! Come draw!

You will learn to include traditional as well as non-traditional art techniques using everyday stuff like tea, Kool-aid or even eye shadow. We will incorporate writing, we will do exercises that develop flow, looseness and confidence that will compliment your personal art making.

Date: Saturday March 24, 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., Rockmosa Older Adult Centre
$20.00 OAC Members
$30.00 Non-Members
PLEASE REGISTER by emailing or by calling 519-856-9596 ext. 139.
Weird Naturalist - Encounters with the World's Wildlife

Presented by Chris Earley, Interpretive Biologist at The Arboretum, University of Guelph and Rockwood resident.

Chris Earley has been privileged to be able to explore different habitats around the world in his quest to find, identify and watch different wildlife species. Better yet, he has been honoured to share many of these experiences with fellow travelers and help them get connected to what our great planet has to offer, and today he will share them with us! Hopefully this talk inspires you to explore your planet,  either far away or in your own backyard.

Cost: FREE

Please Register by Friday March 23rd by emailing or calling 519-856-9596 ext. 139.
