Rock the Ages

This unique rock'n'roll chorus is comprised of singers, experienced and new, who want to learn NEW popular music - not the music they grew up with! Music and singing are great for the brain, memory, camaraderie and general well-being. Weekly practices are open to all.

Robert S. Scott Organic Garden

Located next to the creek and marsh, the Organic Garden is a relaxing and rejuvenating place where residents and their families can enjoy the outdoors. Residents, along with volunteers from the community, have a chance to participate in propagating, planting and caring for a huge variety of fruits, vegetables and flowers. The planter boxes are designed for easy access for those in wheelchairs. The harvest is available every week for residents to take home and enjoy.
