Men’s Group in the Community Lounge
September Saturday Mornings at 8:45 a.m.
This new group is specifically for our men. We meet weekly on Saturdays at 8:45 a.m. with Tori or Chloe serving fresh tea or coffee. We get to know each other better by playing card games, discussing major life events, or just chatting and enjoying each other’s company. We have a lot of men living at Rosewood but a majority of them are not involved in activities. We hope you will join us on Saturday mornings after breakfast in the community lounge.
