From September to June, meeting in member’s homes, we enjoy in-depth discussions over a glass of wine. Our discussions are lively and unpredictable. What fun!
The Book Bags
4th Thursdays 9:30 to 11:30 am except for July, August & December
At the June meeting books are proposed, voted on and slotted into the upcoming months.
The person who suggested a chosen book facilitates and someone else hosts.
Discussions are lively and wide-ranging. Everyone has an opinion, is willing to share and also willing to listen.
Every Friday from Sept-May from 1:00 – 4:00
We take turns hosting 2 tables of 5 hands of bridge with a break for tea/coffee and a goodie.
The bridge is friendly and the conversation lively. We are looking for members interested in playing on a regular basis or as a spare.
Meets for two hours every other Wednesday at members’ homes
We work on personal projects and various charity projects, helping and encouraging each other. Our charity projects have included knitting washcloths, hats, scarves, mittens, socks, blanket squares, children’s cardigans and even members of the Royal Family posed on a balcony – this delight was auctioned at the National AGM in Victoria. We accomplish all this while enjoying good conversation on a wide range of topics.
OUT ‘N’ ABOUT
Meets at least monthly
Out and About was started to provide opportunities for members to socialize and to explore our island home. Chatter and laughter follow us to a local venue or take us further out. Members learn of the month’s plan in the newsletter and sign up at the general meeting for an event later in the month. The organizers make reservations if necessary and arrange to carpool. The objective is to have lunch and fun. To get involved, simply sign up to attend, offer to drive if you can do that, and perhaps suggest an outing you think will be of interest.
Meets as announced
There are a number of our members writing books or articles. We meet several times a year to review member’s writing and give positive feedback about how to proceed to publish or self-publish. Members contemplating writing memoirs, articles or books of any genre are most welcome to join us.
Meets as announced/Robin
Are you interested in a group discussion on topics such as “Indigenous Women in Canada today and what about tomorrow?” or “Are these groups (Indigenous Peoples, Colonists and Immigrants) the three pillars of Canada’s society in the 21st Century? How do we create balance? Other topics are welcome.
