Activity Group News

Connecting new members with activity groups is a major focus of Newcomers. Having recently contacted the chair of every group, it is apparent that the groups are doing a very good job of keeping their own substitute lists. Groups that require a specific number of participants are reaching out to new members and making a sincere effort to accommodate them. Examples are cooking and game groups. Groups that don’t require, or are not limited by, a specific number rely on new members to contact them regarding participation. Examples are Short Walkers and Monthly Movie Group. Assistance with forming a new group is always available by contacting the Activities Coordinator.

Groups that are able to connect via video conference (Zoom, Skype, Facetime, etc.) are encouraged to do so. The social contact lifts spirits even if your regular activity can’t be done!

Interested in Bridge? The Bridge Group would like to start a new group. The names of any new members, who indicated on the new member information sheet that they are interested in Bridge, have been given to Ruth. Other interested players may also contact her directly. They will proceed with forming a new group once the isolation order is modified or lifted. Contact the Bridge Club coordinator for more information.

Please note: Flyers for each group will be available at the monthly luncheons once they resume. These provide more detailed information about the groups including when they meet and all contact information.

If you have any questions, ideas, or are interested in forming a new group, please contact the Activities Coordinator.
