Typically, we host social events once a month, usually on the fourth Tuesday! 

  • Guests and new-comers are always welcome!
  • If you are a member, we’d like to know if you are coming, but no need to RSVP otherwise.
  • Usually we will have a guest speaker to show some pictures of some amazing trips.  We’ll also have a short introduction to get everyone up to speed, and provide information on upcoming activities.
