Men’s Group (ROGUES)
The ROGUES or Retired Old Guys Unlimited Entertainment Society meets twice a month and also has several internal interest groups, including a book club, bridge, bocce, and choir among them. The group goes to a local pub for a monthly luncheon and hosts two dinners annually at the club that are always sellouts. During the biweekly meetings, the group hosts guest speakers, watches TED talks, and discusses current events and issues. For more information contact Gord Paprica at 905 632-3450 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Roseland Women host a monthly themed luncheon with speakers and fun activities. There is also Marathon Bridge which is played in member’s homes throughout the year. An annual golf retreat takes place in May. The group is run by an Executive, who also organizes improvements to the club, along with other good works.
A group of single women get together monthly for a dinner or outing, but also plan excursions to the local theater and other activities. Some of the members have been known to travel together as well! This group is a great way to enjoy the club with other like-minded members.
Families are encouraged to come out for Christmas, Easter and other holiday celebration events. New this year!! Families are welcome to come and chill on the first Friday evening of every month. The bar will be open, the TV on for a game or a movie, and tables ready for a rousing game of Euchre. Some months kids are welcome to watch movies or play. Keep your eye on the Event schedule for more information about the plan for the coming month. For more information be in touch with Lori Wilson at email@example.com.
The Book Club meets monthly to discuss a book selected by the group. Membership is limited to 15 to keep the discussion accessible but spots do occasionally open up. The book titles are provided to the membership.
Bridge is one of the most popular activities at Roseland with 3 games available every week – duplicate games on Monday night and Wednesday afternoon and party bridge on Friday afternoon. There are also women’s and couple’s home and home bridge groups that any member can join in September. Occasionally Sunday party bridge afternoons are organized as well which are open to all members.
On Mondays a lively group of individuals who love to sew get together at the Club. Everyone is invited, and all levels of ability are welcome. The group works individually on anything from large quilts to bags, purses, wall hangings, table runners, placemats and small gift items. Occasionally there is even some dressmaking done. They sometimes work on a group project such as a charity quilt for donation to a needy family. They have experienced sewers to help, and even have spare sewing machines if you aren’t able to bring your own. The group would love to have you join them.
Mah Jong (Chinese) and Mah Jong (American)
Both Chinese and American Mah Jong are played at the club, usually on Tuesdays. Even if you don’t know how to play, you are welcome to come out and learn.
The ROGUES play bocce every Tuesday morning, during good weather, on The Lawn. If any other groups are interested in organizing games, equipment is available.
