Tuesday Virtual Lunch is a place for fun, learning, and connection. The 30-minute meeting has a unique 10-minute speaking format with a single point supported by one human story and ending with a discussion question. We then break into smaller virtual chat groups for 15 minutes. The meeting is always lively because it is less about the speaker and more about the stories and views we share around the virtual water cooler. This group is hosted by Kai Fuentes and her team: Tacie Avedikian, Sequoyah Glenn, Frankie Lipinski, and Colson Steber.
Fun Fridays are hosted by Laura Bright every week and we either play a game or have a short discussion topic. (Recently it was, "Cake or pie."?) We usually don’t talk shop, but if we do, it’s to support each other. It's a nice way to get to know people and take a break. At the beginning of the pandemic, it was too long between Tuesday gatherings, and this helped us get through those rough days. It continues to be an important social time. Some people make it every week; some visit occasionally; it is always a smaller group and a comfortable hang-out. Join us whenever you feel like it.
The Book Group meets every six weeks for 90 minutes. It's hosted by Laura Bright. Unlike most book clubs, finishing the book (or even beginning it) isn’t necessary for attendance. Come even if the featured book is on your TBR list or just a title you're curious about. The conversation is always enjoyable. The group was formed during the pandemic and has grown into a favorite for many members.
