What's Happening with the Interest Groups
 

Still hesitant about indoor settings? Love to read?

The Outdoor Any Book book club (or OABBC) may be for you!

This casual group meets on the third Monday evening of each month at 6:30 pm at local parks or members’ backyard. Bring your own chair & be dressed for the weather! We each take a turn doing a very brief (5-10 minutes.) plot synopsis & review of a book you recently finished reading. Did you like it? Would you recommend it? The conversation easily flows...

This is a terrific group to extend your own personal “must read” book list, share & receive books from others within the group, as well as form new friendships. When the temperatures are a little too cool for our parkas & hot chocolate or the evenings darken a little too much ... we may explore ZOOM meetings this year but this is definitely a last resort!

Expand your reading list, have some fun and join us! Space is limited so be sure to act quickly!

Euchre Group

  • We now have a group of 16 eager (and a bit hesitant) Euchre players, 2 who can only play occasionally. This allows us to make several tables though the number will likely fluctuate during the winter. The group will play every second Monday of the month, from 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm, at the Community Center, Mori Room. First meeting - Monday, December 12, 2022. 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm. If you are unable to make a game, please let me know in advance of the scheduled meeting.

    The cost of the room rental will be shared by the attending members at each game (likely under $4 per person). I have ordered 4 sets of Euchre cards and an instruction book, so we all are up on the rules. Each player is asked to contribute to offset this cost, payable at the first meeting. There are some excellent sites on the web for Euchre refresher tips.
