For close to three years, the Social Groups Committee
(Ann Church and Maria Francis, co-cordinators, Linda McEnroe, Carolyn Moore, Sue Latham, and Patty Smith) has arranged many events, including the weekly coffee club, to connect our members through conversations, learning opportunities, fun road trips, parties, and much more.
As Ann announced at the last meeting, the committee has been thinking hard about creating a mix of social events that our working members and those who don't drive at night can easily attend, like the once-a-month Movie Sunday (see column on the right for the March events calendar.)
We're also encouraging all of you whose needs and passions aren't currently being met to start your own group.
MeetUpas a communications tool, this is really easy and far from "cyber magic."
The only requirement is that you host and manage the group that you start!
So, if you're a walker get a group of like-minded members together and choose your own pace and hiking terrain. Interested in the Classics, Quantum Physics, opera, baking, cooking? ... the list is endless!
For those of you who don't want to become quite so proactive, the Social Groups Committee has planned at least one-often more- events for each month of 2015.
Here a sneak preview for the next four months:
March 7 - Tour of the Scottish Rite Temple
April 22 - Ojo Caliente
May 27 - Cooking Class with Sue
June 26 - Tour of the vaults at the School of Advanced Research
The coffee club will continue but will occasionally be replaced by other gatherings.
The easiest way to stay tuned to all events is through the MeetUp site or our webpage. If you haven't signed up for MeetUp yet, please do so now! It's easy, free, and your information is safe and can only be accessed by members.
