Interest Groups

Membership provides many opportunities for friendship and community engagement, including by exploring shared interests in small informal groups, participating in stimulating discussions or organizing and enjoying active outings.  

Current interest groups include book clubs, bridge clubs, breakfast, luncheon and dinner groups, a political discussion group, a walking group and travel/outing-based groups.  New groups are formed regularly based on members’ interests. Join more than one!

Members enjoy a visit to ZimArt in August 2023. Great to see artist Edious Nyagweta at work – and to acquire a carefully wrapped sculpture to take home!

What’s better than a cottage visit on a beautiful August afternoon? “Nothing” say our Jaunters!

Our Jaunters group reactivated their annual Niagara on the Lake (NOTL) trip, 16 people, in June 2022. They saw THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST, an Oscar Wilde classic, and DAMN YANKEES, a 60’s era musical that was hilarious. They also had two wonderful dinners and did lots of shopping. A wonderful venture to celebrate a return to near normal!
Of course we have bridge players!
A special occasion celebration for the Gourmet Lunch Group!

“Canada has had 15 minority governments. Do they result in more accountability, consultation and legislation? Are they worth the cost of an extra election?”

Indigenous Canada is an online course from The University of Alberta. Members of our Tuesday Discussion Group took the course and used it as a basis of discussion to increase our awareness of indigenous history and culture.
