Interest Groups

We have a wealth of Interest Groups open to all Club members. The groups meet monthly and provide members the opportunity to learn and to interact with others in activities of mutual interest.

Members may sign up for Interest Groups by contacting the group’s chair(s). Suggestion for new groups are welcome, as well as people to spearhead them! Please contact Lorraine Rooks Cary with any further questions or ideas.
