We have regular monthly events as well as seasonal activities. If you are a beginner or a novice, don't hold back. Most groups would be delighted to teach a new member. Not sure you can commit to a full season? Many groups welcome "drop ins" or substitutes. Every group has a contact person who is eager to answer your questions and introduce you to the group. If you don't see a group that reflects your personal interests, start one! The monthly newsletter provides information and updates on all upcoming activities.
Book Club is held at a member's home the second Monday of each month at 1:00 pm from September to May.
