Interest groups provide opportunities for Guild members to form new friendships and build stronger bonds with longtime friends while doing something one enjoys. Some groups meet in the daytime while others may meet in the evening. The type of group is only limited by the willingness of a member to coordinate the group. We are always looking for new things to do and ways to share our interests with one another. If you have a general question about an existing or new group, click here to send an email.

The Movie Goers saw Knives Out on January 29th. It was a whodunit with an A-list cast. It elevates from being a murder mystery to a thriller with a comedic style.
