Hello WOW Members,
We have many great Activity Groups for you to participate in and who are always looking for new members.
The complete list and contact information is included in the newsletter, as well as on the website.  Below are two new groups that are just beginning and looking for new members:

        Happy Hour Group hosted by Carolyn Conner.  The days and locations would vary. 
        Please contact Carolyn directly at or 321-278-3597 if you would like to be part of this group.

        WOW Chorus led by Sharon Abramson.   Sharon is looking for a small group of women who would perform at various locations, including nursing homes and in front of our WOW group. Group practices will begin in November and will be held on the 1st and 4th Monday at Sharon's house. 
        Please contact Sharon directly at or 407-408-0489 (cell) or 407-809-3368. (home) if you would like to join.

Other groups that have been suggested by members are a Walking Group, Painting by Numbers, and Tea Time, which would be wonderful groups to have. 
If you would like to be the group leader for any of these OR have suggestions for other groups that you would like to lead,
please contact Shari Barker at  or 407-406-0698 and I would be happy to help you get them started.
