Special (Cultural) Events

Our idea of "culture" is quite expansive and may include sports events (or viewing parties), theater, movies, concerts, trips to Chicago (on free museum day or otherwise) or area or regional gardens or house tours, and art-related classes or activities.   Activities this last year included watercolor classes, lectures, a bar burger tasting tour, concerts, a Kentucky Derby party and a March Madness pool.

Women's Coffee (Breakfast)

Women meet for coffee (or breakfast) on the second Tuesday of each month at 10 a.m.  The location varies.

There are also a variety of pop-up activities based on members’ interest and what is going on in the community at the time.
