At the start of my term, I told you I was going to try to visit each interest group some time during the year. I participate in Arts and Crafts, Bunco, Poker, Culinary Arts, Lunch Bunch, At the Movies and the Garden Group. I go as regularly as possible. These groups of women keep me going. Love them all!
I continued with my visits in February by going to Book Club at Joy’s home, with about 17 members present. There was a lively discussion about the book they were reading, “West into the Night”. Even though I hadn’t read the book, the discussion was so wonderful that I was able to participate. I had a great time. Anyone is welcome to attend, just let the hostess know.
On to Canasta on March 5 at IHOP. I visited for a while and personally invited them to attend a luncheon. They were so instructive and patient, as I watched them play. Canasta is still going strong but would like some subs. Give it a try. They will teach you to play. The names of all the interest group chairs are in our Directory.
I had hoped to visit Couples Poker, Tapas, GadAbouts and Walking Women before the end of this club year, but COVID-19 may well make that plan impossible. The interest groups of our club are the blood and the monthly luncheon is the glue that keeps Northwest Neighbors running. Every group I have attended has been welcoming, interesting and fun. The luncheons are lovely with interesting programs and good food. So, get out there when this bug has taken a hike and join a group! Come to a luncheon when we get back to having them! You will have so much fun and, I’m sure, will make new friends.
As my term is winding down, I want to say that it has been a pleasure serving you. I leave knowing that you will be in good hands with Helen and the new administration. Wishing you a beautiful April and May in which you stay safe and healthy. Summer is on the way!
