Interest Groups

SPRINGING INTO ACTION!

With the warmer weather, lawns and gardens are emerging after what seemed like a long winter. A great time to check out our Interest Groups as they are back in action with plans for the spring and summer months. Check out all our Interest Groups but here are a few highlights to look for.

DO YOU HAVE AN INTEREST OR HOBBY that you are willing to share, but don’t have the time or inclination for a monthly commitment? A POP-UP event may be just the thing you need.Contact either Rosemary or Kay with the interest, date, time and group number you are comfortable with. 

NEW MEMBERS will always be welcomed into any of our Interest Groups. This is a great opportunity to make new friends while enjoying one or more of our activities.

Please check Website, Newsletter and Calendar for the full range of activities.

If you are an Interest Group Convener, please keep us informed of any changes or items of interest so that I can update the Calendar, Newsletter and Website. Each time you meet please keep a list of all participants including guests. This is for insurance purposes
