Update on Specific Interest Groups
We still need some more Group Starters. If you are interested in being a Group Starter, here’s what you need to know. You will get the specific group together for the first time. You will receive the signup information for that group from Kay and you will contact those on the list by phone and/or email for that specific first time activity. If you have a limited number that can attend or need to know for reservation, you may want to request a RSVP with your invite.
Following that starter event the hope and goal would be for that group to decide when and where they will meet the next time. Send Kay information on that first activity and she can add it to the Newcomers section of the Chamber & Welcome Center Weekly online newsletter.
We need a group starter for a second Book Club.
