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.
