Events & News
Rock Cove residents and staff are avid participants in community life and can be found either volunteering, collaborating or sponsoring, just about every community event on the city calendar. Rock Cove also offers some unique programs such as the GOLD program, which is an inter-generational outreach effort through the school system, creating lasting friendships between rock cove residents and school students. Stevenson area residents have come to rely on several annual events hosted by Rock Cove such as the Santa Breakfast during Christmas in the Gorge and Rock Cove's Annual Wine Tasting event. Our residents are active and involved and appreciate the opportunity to be a part of what's going on.

Rock Cove Awards Scholarships to Local High School Students
Rock Cove awarded Allison Brown and Chase LaCombe, graduating seniors of Stevenson High School, with scholarships to help them reach their goals for the future. Over 30 students applied for the scholarship, but Brown and LaCombe were ultimately chosen because of their outstanding work ethic and commitment to their community. These scholarships are a part of Rock Cove's initiative to support their local community.
Rock Cove's Intergenerational Greenhouse Project
The greenhouse is a great success! Each month, second grade classes from the local elementary school plant seeds with Rock Cove residents and, together, they watch their plants grow! Residents of Rock Cove spend time with the children, talk to them about growing vegetables and maintaining farms when they were younger, and the children teach new things to the residents, as well.
In addition to working with local children, residents at Rock Cove enjoy being a part of a garden club.
Call Rock Cove if you're interested in learning more about or volunteering for the Intergenerational Green House Project.
