Come for the Programs . . .
* For the duration of the covid-19 shutdown, meetings have moved online as video conferences using Zoom and start at 10:00 AM. Visitors are welcome and may request access by sending an inquiry to [email protected]
Meetings start at 9:30 AM with coffee and socializing (suspended during shutdown). At 10:00 we sit down, maybe sing a song or two, and hear a few jokes & announcements. The invited speaker starts at around 10:15. We ask visitors to arrive by 10:00 AM.
Programs consist of stimulating talks by people such as past governors, mayors, politicians, physicians, Nobel Prize winners, judges, professors, historians, scientists, authors, economists, journalists, financial advisors, medical specialists, conservationists, etc. The subsequent Q&A is lively. Put on your business casual attire or jacket & tie (or something more casual from May to September) and attend a meeting with us. All visitors are welcome. Admission is free.
Stay for the Friends*
After the meetings, many members join together to have lunch at various local restaurants.
In addition to the weekly meetings, there are activity groups for golf, bridge, hiking, trips, computer help, tennis and more.
* Or, as one member put it recently, "Come for the Jokes, Stay for the Talks", since we start each meeting by singing a few songs and enjoying a few jokes :-)
