2013-2014 Interest Groups

These groups serve the mission of providing a community of friendship to our members. Dates, times and locations are published monthly in the AFF newsletter, Housecall.

Book Group

Meets monthly, the second Thursday of the month, from 12:30-2:30 PM, at a member's home or restaurant to discuss a book. The title of the book is announced monthly in Housecall. Coordinator: Carol Schneidereit brechbill@comcast.net

Bridge Bunch

For members who support each other's quest to learn and play bridge. Meets two days each month, from 10 am to 1 pm with the host providing snacks. Instructional Day is the first Monday of each month: our mentor guides us through various card scenarios. This is the perfect starting point for someone who wants to learn the game. Play Day is the third Wednesday during winter months/third Monday during summer months; we play bridge, switching partners every four hands. Coordinators: Sue Demers srdhum@yahoo.com and Jaque Repke jrepke@comcast.net
