Happy Hour

smpicnic3Several eclectic interest groups meet monthly and offer a fun way to spend social time while learning and sharing.  A very vibrant BOOK  GROUP (Sunday) meets from 2-3:30 p.m. the third Sunday of each month (except December) downstairs at The Cabin (801 S. Capitol Blvd. in Boise).  The group grew so large that a new BOOK GROUP (Thursday) will be meeting the second Thursday evening monthly from 6:30-8 p.m. at the Collister Library. A MYSTERY BOOK GROUP (Monday) has also been added and meets on the second Monday of the month at a member’s home. The BRIDGE GROUP meets the third Wednesday of each month at at 12:30 p.m. at alternating members’ homes.  CORK ‘N FORK shares themed recipes and delicious meals (partners are welcome) in alternating members’ homes.  Join if you like to share good food and company.  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?  An old branch tradition, GREAT DECISIONS continues to meet on eight Friday mornings in February and March to study and discuss Foreign Policy Association topics.  The HAPPY HOUR GROUP meets once a month at various venues for guaranteed social stimulation and laughter, and the MOVIE GROUP meets monthly at The Flicks for film viewing followed by lively discussion, September through May.  A group for new members, the NEWCOMERS will determine their own focus, whether it’s social, political, a combination of both, or something else all together. Of course, one priority will be getting to know other new members, but mainly we hope this group helps new members make AAUW their own. 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.  The WINE TASTING GROUP will explore the delicious world of wines. Each month, the group will meet at a member’s home to taste four selections, along with appetizers and dessert. Spouses or significant others are welcome.DSC_0283
