Interest Group List

Our branch has a wide variety of Interest Groups. Joining an Interest Group gives you the opportunity to have fun and get to know other women in the branch while sharing a common interest. Some Interest Groups are also open to significant others.

The full, most current list of active and inactive Interest Groups is shown below. You can find details about what each group does, who leads it, and when the group meets. Some Interest Groups are quite popular and have a waiting list. Be sure to add your name to a waiting list if you can’t join the group now.

Don’t see an Interest Group that you’d like? Let us know by contacting us hereThere may be other members with a similar interest who would like to get together and form a new group.

Please email or contact directly to the Interest Group leader or Contact Us.  We will be sure to pass your information to the right people.

(Sept 2021) Bridge Interest Groups – Seeking New Members!

By Angela Domer, 3rd Monday Party Bridge Leader

All three of AAUW’s Bridge Interest Groups are hoping to add members to our sub lists. We also have “wait lists” for people interested in becoming permanent members. All groups meet at 12:30 in the home of the member who is hostess for that month (the hostess doesn’t have to provide any lunch–just some liquid refreshments and snacks on the tables if desired). We have two Party Bridge groups — one plays on the 2nd Monday of the month and the other on the 3rd Monday of the month. Our Duplicate group plays the 4th Monday of the month. Each group usually has 3 tables, but sometimes just 2. If you are interested, please contact the appropriate leader. Subs do not have to hostess. You don’t need to be an expert player — we are fun groups!

2nd Monday Party Bridge — contact Arlene Barnett —

3rd Monday Party Bridge — contact Angela Domer —

4th Monday Duplicate Bridge — contact Lola Rohrs —
