Augmenting our special interest groups are the Neighborhood Groups. Their activities are open-ended, informal and reflect the wishes of the members who are assigned to a group based on their address. While groups are assigned, members may choose to join any group. The groups’ purpose is to provide opportunities for social, supportive and/or information sharing events with members who live nearby. At this time, only a few groups are active. Please refer to the Members Only webpage for a list of members in each group.
The Neighborhood Groups and their general areas are:
Azalea – Heather Farm, Lime Ridge, and Countrywood areas in Walnut Creek, Concord
Bumblebee – Tice Valley, Downtown areas in Walnut Creek, Northwest Alamo
Butterfly – West Shell Ridge, Beacon and Summit Ridge areas in Walnut Creek, Northwest Alamo, Lafayette, Orinda, Moraga, Benicia, Martinez
