Why did you join the CCCEAC?
We enjoy the variety of topics discussed and getting to know the other members.
What do you look forward to the most from your CCCEAC membership?
Pre-COVID we enjoyed sitting with others, sharing our struggles and how to deal with them. We hope to go back to that soon. However, we truly enjoy the commitment that CCCEAC has to its members during such a challenging time by always going above and beyond. We always look forwar to the topics because they are relevant and helpful. (Note from the CCCEAC: Martha was our 2018 and 2019 scholarship winner!)
Tell us about your company!
Rossmoor is a nationally recognized community for seniors who are 55 and older. It is a place of comfort, beauty and serenity, enjoyment and enrichment that is home to people from all over the world.
The Senior Community of Rossmoor first opened in 1964 with HUD-approved co-op housing. The community, originally known as “Leisure World,” was the brainchild of Ross Cortese, who saw the growing population of older citizens and felt their special needs were not being met. His innovative dream was to create self-contained senior communities, offering rewarding living for average individuals whose busy professional and child-rearing days were ending, but who were still interested in active and enriched living. He wanted to establish a country-club atmosphere that would be in reach of the average senior.
Today, Rossmoor has more amenities and leisure activities than even Cortese could have imagined. There are five clubhouses and an event center, a fitness center, 27 holes of golf, eight tennis courts, a state-of-the-art table tennis clubhouse, lawn bowling greens, bocce ball courts, three swimming facilities, picnic grounds, a computer center, a full-service library, a bridge/card room, a movie theater, hobby and arts shops, a full-service restaurant and bar and a dog park.
