Several eclectic interest groups meet periodically and offer a fun way to spend social time while learning and sharing. You are sure to find a group that interests you. Meeting schedules and times may have been changed due to COVID restrictions.
Our first BOOK GROUP (Sunday) meets from 2:00 to 3:30 p.m. the third Sunday of each month either in person or via Zoom. The group grew so large that another BOOK GROUP (Thursday) meets the second Thursday evening monthly from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m. at the Collister Library. A MYSTERY BOOK GROUP (Monday) meets on the second Monday of the month, also via Zoom.
The BOWLING GROUP meets the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month, Sept through May at 10:00 am at Westy’s Garden Lanes in Garden City. We bowl 2 games and are done by 11:30 am. Anyone can join! You don’t have to be a good bowler. We are all levels – good, bad, and much improved.
The DAYTIMERS GROUP goes on monthly day-trip adventures in our area – each outing is organized by a different member. Where do you want to go?
GREAT DECISIONS continues to meet on eight Friday mornings in February and March to study and discuss Foreign Policy Association topics.
HAPPY HOUR has migrated to a Zoom environment. All branch members are notified by email with a Zoom link. Occasionally, in-person events are held.
The MOVIE GROUP meets monthly at The Flicks for film viewing followed by lively discussion, September through May.
A group where all members are welcome, the NEWCOMERS GROUP is a monthly social event. Its priority is getting to know new members and we hope this group helps them make AAUW their own.
PUBLIC POLICY/LOBBY CORPS
For those with a penchant for public policy, contact the Boise Area Branch PUBLIC POLICY chair. During the winter state legislative session, the Statehouse LOBBY CORPS meets to advance AAUW priority issues at the Capitol.
