REFRESH SPACE

Fortnightly, on Thursday, at the Capalaba Library, RDCOTA volunteers provide a Refresh morning tea for seniors who are visiting Capalaba. ‘Refresh ’ is in the Art Space, Capalaba Library and provides seniors with respite from shopping, a place to await transport or somewhere to meet other seniors. Entry is through the library or from the walkway near the Council Service desk (look for the signs). The Seniors Refresh Space is open for tea, coffee and refreshments from 9.30am until 11:30am. All seniors are welcome with a gold coin donation requested to assist with catering.

TOURNAMENT OF THE MINDS

 Every month, a number of residents of care facilities in Redland City gather at a host facility for morning tea and a 20 question trivia quiz. These events are coordinated by RDCOTA volunteers and supported by the Management Committee. Transport and morning tea are catered for by participating care facilities with organisational assistance provided by Diversional Therapists who usually prepare the trivia questions which can be quite challenging. These are enjoyable mornings which are supplemented by outside events including a mid-year picnic and a Christmas lunch.

Our thanks to the wonderful volunteers, Diversional Therapists , facilities and local businesses who cooperate to make these social events possible. 

MEN'S GROUP 

Every Friday morning, a group of us meet to chat, laugh and generally talk about whatever comes up. Senior men are invited to join us and to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee and a biscuit. There are no obligations, no pressure to recite or sing and no pressure to attend every Friday - just the opportunity to come along as you please for company, refeshment and a chat.
Men’s Group every Friday meet at the RDCOTA Office – 57 Wynyard Street, Cleveland from 9:30am
