CONNECTIONS

  • All-Member Meetings and Programs
    Brief social time followed by a leisurely lunch and a program arranged by our planning committee. We may also conduct a little club business, and a fun raffle is part of every gathering. (As a nonprofit social group, the raffles help raise funds for the club.) These gatherings provide a chance to meet new friends and reconnect with others. (BTW, this isn't technically an Activity Group but it's definitely a fun activity!)
    2nd Wednesdays in March, June, September, and December

  • Birthday Gals 
    Meets four times a year in a member's home to enjoy cake, bubbly, and celebrating with friends.

  • Come As You Are & Chat
    Members can drop in on Zoom to say hello and check in with one another.  A one-hour timeframe supports communication without interruption.
    Every Tuesday

COFFEES 

For new members, these monthly Come for Coffee gatherings are a fun and casual way to meet others. Longtime members provide a warm welcome and have an opportunity to reconnect.
