Rosedale Senior Center provides educational, social and recreational opportunities for active seniors age 60 years and older. New and exciting events are happening each month, check it out in our newsletter, "The Rosedale Review" (PDF).
It All Started in 1974
Rosedale Senior Center opened September 16, 1974 at the Prince of Peace Lutheran Church. In those early days the center operated two days a week as a Nutrition Lunch Plus site. As the years progressed, so did the center's programming and it was moved to the Rosedale Elementary School. In the summer of 1995, the school requested back the space the senior center occupied for classrooms. In January 1996, the current home of Rosedale Senior Center was constructed as a 5,800 square-foot freestanding building on school grounds and the center opened a full five days a week.
Today. . .
Today seniors at the Rosedale Senior Center pride themselves on being a part of a friendly center that loves to laugh. Special events always draw a crowd for great food and music. Some of these events include: Member Appreciation Lunch, Bull Roast, Father's Day Breakfast, and the Crazy Fashion Show.
A variety of classes from painting and drawing to yoga and aerobics are offered each week. The most popular class is aerobics/ strength training, where a combination of aerobic steps are integrated with strength resistance from exercise bands. Newer classes like Yoga are offered, as well as familiar favorites like Ceramics, Water Aerobics and Quilting. Many travel opportunities are offered each year. Trips ranging from a one-day Eastern Shore Crab Feast to a week-long stay in Orlando, Florida, you're sure to find the perfect vacation!
Some of the center's recent accomplishments include logging over 2,300 miles to win the Race Across Maryland walking challenge against Overlea Senior Center and forming an official charter of the Red Hat Society called the "Rosy Red Hatters of Rosedale."
Volunteers Make the Difference!
Volunteers are an important part of Rosedale Senior Center and its operations. Volunteers contribute by serving and cooking meals, purchasing supplies, coordinating special events, managing the front desk and much more. Many center volunteers contribute by knitting baby hats and blankets for Project Linus, a community service project.
