Here's a list of our current interest groups:
Book Groups - We have both day and evening book groups! Meetings are held at the homes of members, and book lovers come once a month to enjoy lively discussions. There are currently two book groups.
Bridge Groups - We have enthusiastic bridge players with both day and evening groups. All skill levels are welcome!
BUNCO - BUNCO is an easy, fun game that requires no experience. Attendees contribute a small donation for prizes and bring an appetizer to share. Our BUNCO gatherings are held in the evenings and limited to 12 or 16 players.
Cocktail parties - These popular get-togethers are a great way to meet new friends. Held about six times per year, they are typically on a week day evening at a member's home. Guests bring wine and hors d'oeuvres to share. Husbands and partners are welcome to attend.
Hustle and Muscle - This group is designed for women who enjoy getting together to exercise, stay fit, take nature walks in local parks, take a yoga or pilates class, play tennis, golf, kayak, work out – or do pretty much anything to stay active and healthy. Looking for a running partner? Know about a great local yoga class? Want a buddy for a local charity walk, sporting event, or to exercise with?
Lettuce Munch - These are themed lunches at member's homes with an emphasis on healthful eating. Lettuce Munch is a great way to socialize!
Momtourage - This group plans to bring together "Moms" of all ages in our community, including "Moms N tots" for play dates and camaraderie, women interested in parenting topics and family-oriented fun, and working moms looking for enriching, supportive, and diverse activities that promote friendships.
The Sip and Sup Club - This group is designed for women who enjoy getting together for happy hour during the week at some of our favorite local restaurants, such as L'Auberge Chez Francois, Dante's, El Tio's, Brix and others. This is a wonderful way to mix and mingle and meet new friends!
The Travel Party - This group meets to travel across the globe for an hour-packed adventure. Each program features a different country and host, with the host braiding history, culture, experiences and photos in her presentation. The party then transitions to interactive discussion, including shared experiences of participants and questions for future travelers. Meets 1st Fridays, 10-11 AM.
Wine Enthusiasts - The Wine Enthusiasts group gathers for formal wine tastings to focus on wines from different regions or a specific varietal. This allows members to try wines from around the world! The goal is to learn a little bit while also getting to know new friends. Events are often held in members' homes or at a venue such as a wine shop or restaurant.
Wine 101 - Whether you’re a novice or a newbie to wine, this wine group meets up informally to discuss a specific wine theme, whether it be a varietal, region, or focused exercise, all while socializing. Most events allow singles and couples to attend and members are requested to bring food and/or wine on topic. All events are held in either members’ homes, wine store event rooms, or local wineries and have a speaker for 10-15 minutes during the event to discuss the theme. Some events have a fee to cover a venue and/or specific wines.
