Interest Groups

So many interests and activities, so little time! As a member, if you don't see any activities that you like (though we can't believe that would be the case) - start a new group! If you do see some interest groups that you would like to join, please feel free to reach out to that Interest Group Leader and let them know you are interested and would like to be included on their email list. You will find their names and contact information by clicking on "Members", then "Interest Groups".

Here's a list of our current interest groups:

All Kinds of Needles/Stitchery - Needle workers of every style and skill level are invited to join this group and share experiences in crafts, needlepoint, knitting, beadwork, quilting and cross-stitch. Relax and enjoy your craft in the company of others.

Book Groups - We have both day and evening book groups! Meetings are held at the homes of members, and book lovers come once a month to enjoy lively discussions. 

Bridge Groups - Great Falls Friends and Neighbors hosts enthusiastic bridge players. The current active groups are a ladies afternoon group and mixed pairs bridge that meets in the evening and includes dinner.  The start-up of a new group is always welcome too. All skill levels are welcome! 

BUNCO - BUNCO is an easy, fun game that requires no experience.  Attendees contribute five dollars and an appetizer to share. This small sum is for the next hostess to purchase BUNCO prizes for the winners.  Our BUNCO gatherings are held in the evenings and limited to 12/16 players.

Cocktail parties - These popular get-togethers are a great way to meet new friends. Held about six times per year, they are typically on a week day night from 6 pm to 9 pm at a member's home.  Guests bring wine and hors d'oeuvres to share.  Husbands and partners are welcomed. 

Foodies - This group is designed for women who enjoy getting together on an ad-hoc basis for camaraderie.  Everyone can have great fun catching up while enjoying dinner or happy hour at some of our favorite local restaurants.  Foodies is currently looking for a volunteer to lead the group. 

Lazy GourmetThis is a group that meets at award-winning restaurants in the DC Metro area about once a quarter, both with and without significant others, for brunch, lunch or dinner.  Couples and singles are welcome.

Lettuce Munch - These are casual pot-luck lunches that are hosted at members' homes.  The lunches are typically tied to fun themes (for example: "Fall Flavors", "Skinny Spring Dishes", "International Foods", etc).  Members always show up with an amazing array of delicious homemade or store bought dishes.  Lettuce Munch is a great way to socialize and get some wonderful recipes!

MomtourageMomtourage is a group of moms with children in pre-school through college who meet once a month for camaraderie and conversation over coffee, wine, lunch, or dinner.  Think of this group as a personal entourage of similarly stressed and overworked moms!

Movie Outings - The Movie group meets on selected Tuesdays to enjoy newly released films, with lunch prior or refreshments afterwards.

SmART Womenn's Lunch Forum - "S"avy wo"m"en "A"cquiring "R"ecent "T"echnology is a monthly social opportunity to gather, share a meal, and ignite intellectual curiosity in a supportive thoughtful environment.   

Wine EnthusiastsThe Wine Enthusiasts group gathers monthly to focus on wines from different regions or a specific varietal. This allows members to try wines from around the world! The goal is to learn a little bit while also getting to know new friends.  Events are often held in members' homes or at a venue such as a wine shop or restaurant.

Yoga - Yoga class incorporates various poses and flows to increase strength, stretching, and relaxation. Modifications are given to accommodate all levels. It's a wonderful way for our members to end up feeling relaxed and refreshed!
