If you have a special interest in something, chances are that other members do too. Common interests that bring members together in smaller groups can be anything from playing a card game to simply enjoying great conversation over a delicious meal. All it takes to add another type of Interest group is to have a few members willing to get one started, and others will join too!
Groups meet in clubhouses, restaurants and homes. Interest Groups that meet during the week generally conclude by 9 pm in plenty of time to get home to kiss the kids goodnight and rest up for the next workday.
A calendar of Interest Group activities are in each monthly newsletter.
Here is a sampling of some of our Interest Groups. Please contact the Interest Group Leader listed in the newsletter for more information.
