The RARE Senior Center has become a hub of activity for the Senior Citizens who reside in Roseville and Eastpointe. The mission of the Senior Center is to provide a comprehensive array of activities and services that promote healthy aging. Our new facility consists of a Multi-purpose Room , Fitness Room, Game Room, Senior Drop-in Room, Computer Room, Senior Center Office and a lobby with a big screen TV and a fireplace. At our Center, we offer an abundance of activities for citizens age 50 and over. There is a wide variety of programs and services which are designed with seniors in mind.
Many of the programs are free or only have a nominal charge and our S.M.A.R.T bus service allows those who no longer drive to join in the fun as well. The Recreation Authority has become the ideal place for Eastpointe and Roseville senior citizens to mix and mingle.
We have daily, weekly, and monthly activities as well as special events and travel opportunities. We are located in the Recreation Authority Center at 18185 Sycamore Street in Roseville. A hot cup of coffee, delicious cookies, and friendly faces are all part of our daily routine. Feel free to stop in Monday – Friday from 8:30 a.m. – 4:30 p.m. and pick up the monthly newsletter.

WII BOWLING LEAGUE
What is Wii Bowling?
Wii Bowling is part of the Wii Sports video game, played on the Nintendo Wii Gaming System. It is a computer based bowling game with wireless motion sensitive remote controllers. The motion controllers are used in place of a bowling ball and allow participate to simulate actual game play.
This is a great alternative for those who love to bowl but have difficulty managing a heavy bowling ball. Our bowling leagues are very popular and our guests have a great time. Enjoy the friendship and camaraderie of your teammates while experiencing all the fun and exercise of a real life bowling league.
For a complete list of all the dynamic programs offered to seniors, or if you have questions regarding services available, please contact the senior center office at (586) 777-7177. Monthly newsletters may be picked up at the Center on or after the first of each month. To receive a copy of the newsletter by mail, there is an annual fee of $6.00, which is payable at the Recreational Authority Senior Office.
