Smaller groups include: Mystery Outings on Tuesday and Thursday Art Class Knitting Group Bridge Sunday Movies Shiurim Family of Friends Over 200 people visit COA each week, some of them come in every day. We refer to our members as a "Family of Friends" and together we celebrate their birthdays, milestones, special events, and we also commemorate their losses - just as a family should. Some people have reconnected with schoolmates and old friends in the Centre, and some have made new friends for their older age right here. Together they experience the highs and lows of life as a senior and enjoy each others company.
