Have an idea for a new interest group? One of our committees can help you get started. We suggest that the coordinator of an interest start with one idea and plan 3 activities. See how it goes and chart a new course from there. No long term commitment and a great opportunity to meet some neighbors who share an interest.
These ideas for interest groups came from our brainstorming at our first gathering last spring. Volunteer to coordinate one of these, or start a group based on a new idea?
Ready to get out the city for a walk in the woods? This group promises that the first hike will be short and level, with later opportunities to increase the miles.
Our second hike with be in just outside the city on Monday, May 20th at 10 AM. The trail is about 3 miles long, not too hard. Please e-mail Megin Diamond for coordinating the gathering, sharing ride, etc.

The new Parkway in Station North, The Charles, The Creative Alliance, The Landmark? Lots of choices. Let's carpool or share rides and get together afterwards to talk about the films. Upcoming dates for the movie: Saturday, Nov. 24, Dec. 29 and Feb 2 in the early afternoon.
A week before each event, e-mail Beth with a suggestion of what you want to see. We'll determine what the most popular suggestion is and will reply to everyone a few days beforehand with what we are seeing, where and when we will see it, and information about transportation. Everyone will be responsible for paying for their own ticket.
