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. While groups are only open to branch members or prospective members, some Interest Groups also include significant others in their activities.

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.
