Starting November 9th, Beatrice Pimpinella is starting her Poker activity. Fran J is starting Hand and Foot on November 11th. Book Club is meeting using Zoom. (The Spies of Shilling Lane by Jennifer Ryan—join us at 1 pm on Nov.2nd. Contact- 
So far these are the only three activities that have just started up. I don’t think our Couples Bunco is ready to start up yet so that probably won’t be till next year.   Hope you all stay safe and wear a mask.  Jennie
Gift for Teaching- I don’t know when we will be needed. Now they have only a small crew and are restricting teachers to curb service. We let them know we can help as a group or as individuals (some of us are willing to go).  So, GFT Ladies, hang in there and stay safe.  More info as soon as I know.  –Fran Jarolimek


Joining any of our WOW Activities is a great way to meet and get to know the wonderful women who are already participants of WOW Activity Groups.  Just call the contact person to learn more. See the chart below for contact information.
As a reminder to all Activity Group Chairs, all members of WOW Activity Groups must be current on their WOW dues.
Many of our activities by their nature have very flexible membership, ie "come when you can".
Just get on the group's contact list then you can decide each time if you can make it or not.
They are noted with a FLEX in the first column.

Daytime Bunco

WOW’s Daytime Bunco group gathered for December hosted this year by Louise Clayton. Everyone contributed to a delicious feast and
