INTEREST GROUPS
 
COVID Update:  November 1, 2021
 
Joining an interest group is a wonderful way to get to meet new people. We have a variety groups including book clubs, art classes, walking, cycling, and lunching out. Some groups meet on Zoom, but most are in person.
 
Once you become a club member you will have access to the list of groups and their conveners thought the Website Members Only section.  You then are able to find out more about the group by contacting the convener.  You can join more than one group .
 
We encourage the creation of new groups to accommodate interested members however all groups must have a volunteer group convener in order to get established.
 
Please contact the Director of Interest Groups of you have an idea to share. We would be happy to hear from you and answer any questions you may have.  Contact the Director of Interest Groups
