Activity Group News
New Activity Groups:
Writing Group – The new Writing Group has gotten off to a good start, but would love to have a few more members. The group generally meets twice a month on Wednesday afternoons (sometimes Fridays) at 1 pm to share their writing, get suggestions for improvement, or tips on classes or articles of interest. They are somewhat flexible with meeting times, as they are new and want to accommodate all members. If you’re interested in joining the group, please contact the Activities Chair.
The New Monthly Movie Group – One of our newest members has stepped up and will be the new Monthly Movie Group activity leader. This group will go to the movies early afternoon on the second Monday of each month beginning March 11. About one week ahead of the movie, the leader will email a list of three movies for the Movie Group to choose from. The movie receiving the most votes received by reply email will be the movie attended. After the movie, group members may go somewhere close by for coffee and a nosh and talk about the movie and any movies coming up that they would like to see. Since this is a new group with a new leader, adjustments will be made based on your feedback so please let us know what you think. If you are interested in joining this group, please email the Activity Group Chair.
Current Activity Group Opportunities:
The Garden Club meets the first Tuesday of the month at 11:00 am. They are looking for a new person or persons to chair their group. Please contact the Garden Club Leader for further information. There is always room for new members. The meetings are usually held at private gardens, nurseries or other places where we can have a speaker. There is always someone, either the owner of the garden or a nursery, who will give a talk.
Mostly Mysteries Book Club (NOTE change in date of meetings) now meets the first Monday of each month at 1:30 pm. Meeting location changes monthly. This group has space for new members, and they are a warm and welcoming group.
The Mexican Train Group meets the fourth Friday of the month from 1 to 3:00/3:30 pm. Hosting rotates among the group’s members. Mexican Train is a fun dominoes game played with a little strategy and a lot of luck, allowing for plenty of time during the round for chatting and enjoying each other’s company. The object of the game is to play all your dominoes or at least as many high-point dominoes as possible during each round as you take turns building lines of end-matching dominoes that run around the table. The rules of the game are easy to understand and follow, and the game is played simply for fun, with the low scorer being the winner. Those interested in joining us for a fun afternoon should contact the Activity Group Leader.
One of the two Hand and Foot Groups meets the third Thursday of the month (September through June) from 1:00 to (approximately) 3:30 pm. This group takes turns meeting at different members’ homes. In addition, a member will assist the hostess by providing (or assisting) with refreshments. Or, the hostess can opt to handle the afternoon snacks herself. They are currently looking for two additional full-time members and two to three more subs. For more information, please contact the Leader of the Thursday Hand & Foot group listed in your Roster.
