Great way to meet new friends in your community or get together with friends that you haven’t seen in a while. Each week is a different fun filled activity. 

Weekly activities include cards, bingo, pool, baking, crafts, guest speakers and more! Light snacks are provided, and drop-ins are always welcome; no pre-registration required.

Have you ever wanted to start knitting? Do you already know how to knit, but would enjoy joining a few others in the craft? Join ROSSS and your neighbours every Friday morning for delicious coffee, great conversation and, of course, knitting! Participants are responsible for bringing their own supplies.
