GROUPS

 

In addition to our monthly meetings, our members also get together in smaller groups to share some of their mutual special interests in greater depth. For now, however, these groups either are meeting virtually via Zoom or are still in the process of determining just how they will proceed in this new normal. These groups include: 
 

Book Club

Mystery Book Club
Lunch Bunch

Walking/Hiking Group

IWC Happy Hour

 

 

BOOK CLUB

 

Next Book Club Meeting

 

Date/Time: TBD

Location: TBD

 

Note: The September 22 planning meeting has been canceled. Annette Aries will be contacting various members of the Book Club to get their input on next steps. Stay tuned!

MYSTERY BOOK CLUB

 

Plans are pending. But we need your input. Have you been a member of the Mystery Book Club in past years? Or are you relatively new to the club but love to read mysteries? Are you interested in participating in a Mystery Book Club? If so, please contact Marion (mkboike@msn.com) or Barb (j_bbruemmer@comcast.net). Thank you!

LUNCH BUNCH

 

Lunch Bunch is one of our most popular activities. But in our new normal, we need to get creative. So we're asking for volunteers to explore our options. If you'd like to help, please contact Barb Bruemmer (j_bbruemmer@comcast.net) or Marion Boike (mkboike@msn.com).

WALKING/HIKING GROUP

 

To All Monday Hikers & Walkers!

 

We will continue to meet Monday mornings at 9:30 a.m. and have selected walks and hikes that allow for good social distancing. We will keep our groups to 5 members and will break into two groups when necessary. Members who plan to attend should contact Marion Boike (793-989-1335) or Mary Nassif (425-830-3448).

 

 

SEPTEMBER

 

  • MONDAY, September 28th, 9:30 a.m. WALK! Sammamish Lakeside Trail from the parking lot.

 

OCTOBER

 

  • MONDAY, October 5th, 9:30 a.m. WALK! Klahanie Park to Beaver Park Lodge and back. It's a 4-mile walk, but anyone who does not want to do the whole walk can meet the group at the lodge at about 10 a.m.
  • MONDAY, October 12th, 9:30 a.m. WALK! Pickering Barn to Gilman Village. This is a very level and very easy walk. Weather permitting, we can get coffee at Issaquah Coffee and enjoy it outside.
  • MONDAY, October 19th, 9:30 a.m. HIKE! Harvery Mannin/Anti-Aircraft Trail via the Sky Country Trailhead (7180 Clay Pit Road, Bellevue 98006). It's a scenic but a bit more challenging hike between 5 and 6 miles with some elevation at the beginning of the hike.
  • MONDAY, October 26th, 9:30 a.m. WALK! A new walk added this fall from the Eastgate Starbucks on 156th in Bellevue (3181 156th Ave. SE, Bellevue 98007) to Robinswood Park. Some paved paths as well as dirt paths through the woods, 2.5 to 3 miles with no real elevation. Again, we will hope for accommodating weather to enjoy coffee outside.

 

NOVEMBER (So Far)

 

  • MONDAY, November 2nd, 9:30 a.m. WALK! Snoqualmie Trail from Alice Lake Trailhead to the lookout over the valley to Snoqualmie Falls. A little over 3.5 miles round trip on a flat paved path.

 

Detailed weekly directions and any change in plans will be sent to all members who have signed up for the Walking/Hiking Group. So don't forget to let Mary (425-830-3448) or Marion (703-989-1335) know if you plan to attend.
