Interest Groups

If you have a special interest that you do not see listed here, we are always open to starting new groups, provided someone is willing to chair the group and we have other members who are interested! 

BOOK DISCUSSION:  We have three different book discussion groups to meet the convenience of our members--two daytime and one evening.  In each one members meet for monthly discussion and review of the month's chosen book!

DAYTIME BRIDGE:  6 No Trump card game

DAYTIME AND EVENING BUNCO:  An easy and fun game played with dice.  Easy to learn and lots of laughs!

COFFEE WITHOUT CHILDREN:  Members take turns hosting this casual morning of coffee, light breakfast, and great conversation!

EUCHRE:  Two daytime groups play this Midwestern classic card game.  If you don't know how to play, we'll teach you! 

GOURMET SNOOPERS:   Explore restaurants in the area while having dinner with fellow Newcomers!

MAHJONGG:  Fun and challenging game similar to Gin Rummy, but played with tiles instead of cards.  This group meets during the day. 

MEN'S GOLF:  From May to September, play some of the area's golf courses on Saturdays or Sundays. 

  Check out area restaurants for lunch with your fellow Newcomers!

POKER:   Ante up and play with this evening group.

STAGE AND SCREEN:  Attend movies, live theater, concerts and more!

WALKING:  Get those steps in by walking at Fox River Mall!  This group walks then gathers for coffee and conversation.

WINE TASTING:  The group gathers at member homes, area wineries or wine bars.  Have a great time learning about your favorites, and perhaps acquiring some new ones!
