Have you heard of the Boot Scootin’ Seniors of Rock River Center? Have you seen them perform? Have you ever thought about joining them but were afraid you couldn’t keep up with their steps??? Well, here’s your chance to start from the beginning!

Boot Scooters-9:00 AM Tuesdays & Thursdays

The Boot Scootin’ Seniors have been steppin’ and stompin’ since 1993 when the first line dance classes for seniors began at Rock River Center. The group dances all year round and is invited to perform at nursing homes, assisted living facilities, and at special occasion events such as the Tri-County Opportunities Foster Grandparent Christmas Party, Pegasus “Horseshoe Ball”, and the Rockford Senior Expo. The Boot Scooters are ambassadors for Rock River Center who enjoy making life happier for others. Their enthusiasm for having a good time is contagious, and the audience is quick to tap their toes and fingers to the music. Thank you, Boot Scooters, and keep on “Scootin”!

Jessica DeVries Joins Rock River Center Crafters

Jessica DeVries, Community Relations Director, Generations at Neighbors, has joined the Crafting Group on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month. Each month the group will have a different theme with an assortment of craft items to work on at the Center.

Quilt - Hand Painted

The Crafters at Rock River Center are working on a quilt where each square is hand painted. They are introducing this quilt this now, the week of the winter Olympics.

Still needing to be quilted this will be an interesting project.
