Interest Sections are back! Sections will meet in a variety of ways, while following local COVID guidelines. All members who have paid their annual dues may join any open interest section. Live sign-ups for interest sections are back too! Section signups will take place at the Newcomers Welcome event on September 29th. You may sign up for any section that interests you. If a section is full, please sign up anyway, and a new section will be formed.
If there is enough interest, some dormant sections like Yoga and Line Dancing will be restarted. So please make sure you sign up at the Newcomers Welcome. If you are no longer participating in a section and would like to be removed, please contact the leader and let her know so space can be opened up for another member. Following fall sign-ups, a list of sections that have openings will be included in your monthly newsletter. You are welcome to contact the leader of an open section and join at any time.
