putting down roots



This is your club to make friends doing things you love. Joining an activities group is guaranteed to help you get better acquainted with new friends. We have so many fun and interesting activities from which to choose, you will probably find more than one to join. It is a great way to get acquainted quickly and easily in Newcomers.

Activity Books are available for you to peruse each month at the General Meeting/Luncheon. You are encouraged to visit any group meeting that sparks your interest. You must sign up in the activity books to be a member of the group.

If you have an interest in starting a new group with a new theme, please make a note in the appropriate activity book titled "New Ideas" at a general meeting, or contact the Activities Chair by email, phone, or in person.
