ROM – 3rd Monday Nights Free
The Royal Ontario Museum has announced a new initiative that will enable members of the public to visit the Museum free of charge once a month. 3rd Monday Nights Free furthers their commitment to provide greater access to the Museum and open the doors of the ROM to as many visitors as possible. This program is supported by the TD Bank Group and The Bennett Family Foundation. The program was launched on April 15th. The ROM is offering the public complimentary access to the Museum’s 40 galleries, from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. on the third Monday of each month. Entry to feature exhibitions such as Zuul: Life of an Armoured Dinosaur and Treasures of a Desert Kingdom: The Royal Arts of Jodhpur will be separately ticketed and subject to a surcharge. Working with their community partners, these evenings will also feature local artists and performers, further enhancing the Monday night experience.

COMMUNITY CAFÉ is a pilot project organized by the Health Ministry Team of the Armour Heights Presbyterian Church and Mosaic Community Resource Centre. Mosaic will provide a facilitator and Armour Heights will host. This is an opportunity for seniors to gather, share, listen and engage in various topics of broad interest. Unlike our lunch and learn events which are more focussed on listening, community café is intended to include more engaged participation to exercise the mind and spirit toward greater health long term. Topics will be announced each month.
