Join or Start a Village Interest Group
Want to learn more about your computer in the company of other Mount Pleasant Village members? Interested in playing bridge or Mah Jong or doing some knitting in good company? Perhaps you want to discuss climate change, Statehood or explore end-of-life issues? There may be an interest group just waiting for you. If not, you might organize one.
Such a group springs up when members or volunteers express an interest and then put one together. Interest Groups are different from, say, a shopping trip with a friend. They are:
- Organized by the proposed Interest Group (with help from the Program Committee if requested).
- Open to all Villagers.
- Advertised to the Village membership.
Join a Current Village Interest Group:
The Village groups are advertised in the Village Announcements weekly and can be found on the Village website.
- Game Night—group gets together for variety of games weekly
- Ad Hoc Book Club – group selects and discuses books monthly.
- Mah Jong – a Monday afternoon group for beginners as well as experienced players. If you’ve never played, members will teach you.
- Mindful Meditation – group meets weekly at members’ homes for meditation.
- Villagers’ Coffee Break – group meets weekly for coffee and conversation.
Form a New Village Interest Group.
- With 3 or more Village members, discuss the ideas and activities you are interested in organizing around
- Remember you can get help from the Program Committee
- Announce an information meeting or event to let others know about your group.
- Let the Program Committee know about the idea, plans and activities.
- Advertise in the Village Announcements
