Start each day at 9 a.m. with a low-aerobic exercise program made especially for seniors, followed by a varied shows of health tips, lectures, music, authors and information about the community. Channel 28 also covers the Golden Rain Foundation’s Board meetings, both mid-month and end of the month meetings.
The first Tuesday of every month at 5 p.m., Channel 28 broadcasts a live program called “TV Bingo.” This is an interactive game in which residents can play on their television in their own home. In order to play, residents need to obtain a free bingo card from the front desk at Channel 28’s office at Creekside. A Rossmoor resident ID is needed to register a name and address in the bingo log in exchange for the bingo card.
The card is free and can be used every month to play along with the TV. Prizes vary each month, but some examples are gift cards, haircuts, dinners, manicures, jewelry, concert tickets, flowers and much, much more. Residents representing clubs host the game each month, calling numbers and telling about their clubs. It’s a very fun way to spend an evening.
