Campus Club’s Evening Book Discussion meets at members’ homes on the second Tuesday of each month.  We try to read an eclectic variety of books:  novels, non-fiction, biography etc.  Books are suggested by members at each meeting.  For us, a good book is one that encourages a good discussion. We try to have books lined up for the next 2 -3 months.  True to type, we are friends and enjoy visiting with each other, but only after we have discussed the book!  We welcome new members and appreciate how they broaden our perspective.

The Luncheon Group meets at a local restaurant every month for nine months, September through May.  Our first luncheon which will be Thursday, September 22nd will be our organizational meeting.  We go to a variety of local restaurants that are recommended by the members.  Volunteers sign up for a month to be the hostess.  The hostess makes a tentative reservation with the chosen restaurant, sends reminders to the members, receives RSVPs, confirms the number attending with the restaurant, and brings a sweet treat, usually in the form of chocolate candy, to be shared with everyone after lunch.  We have about 10 to 12 in attendance most of the time.  We have a good time visiting and sharing.  There is always an open place at the table for more.

The Walking Group meets at various rail trail locations. Information as to meeting place is sent via email the Tuesday before.  We generally avoid walking in and through the downtown trail area due to heavier traffic. The group welcomes anyone who can walk 3 miles in an hour.  The trails are generally level or have gradual elevation.  We walk 30 minutes in one direction and then return.  Some members walk faster than others, so we tend to spread out in twos and threes.  Walks may be canceled at the last minute via email if it is raining at 7:45 A.M.  Otherwise, we prepare to get wet if rain is in forecast.  Snow cover on trails tends to be icy and we don't schedule walks in that case.
