CFUW Aurora/Newmarket prides itself on the variety and number of Interest & Study Groups available to its members. These groups are an opportunity to make new friends with interests similar to your own. Open to any member in good standing, you may join as many or as few as you wish.
The nature of the groups and their meetings vary. Many of the groups meet in the homes of members which limits the number of participants. There are many Book and Bridge groups both during the day and in the evenings. If you are unable to join the Interest Group of your choice you can go on a waiting list or, if others are also interested, we can assist you in starting a new group.
Ideas for new groups are always welcome.
Discuss selected books at monthly evening or daytime meetings.
Novice to duplicate bridge groups meet monthly, bi-monthly or weekly. Groups play at beginner or intermediate level.
