Plans are pending, but we need your input. Were you a member of the Mystery Book Club in the past and wish it would continue? Are you interested in participating in a new Mystery Book Club? If the answer is "yes" either of these questions and you would like to be a part of making it happen, please contact Barb ( or Marion ( Thank you!






Lunch Bunch has always been 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 Marion ( or Barb (





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).


Note: Especially at this time of year, we must remind walkers that each week's walk is undertaken "weather-permitting." We are always in touch by email and text when we must cancel because of inclement weather.
