Four for Lunch

Make some new friends or get reacquainted with some old ones, simply by meeting for lunch! Groups are created for three months and then get shuffled.


Dine Time

This is an opportunity to share a dinner meal with friends – old and new. Small groups are formed for a three-month time period. The group meets three times, usually in each others homes, to share a meal.
