The Club meets monthly, from September to May. The highlight of the meeting is a guest speaker, who talks about an always-interesting aspect of life in this area. It’s an opportunity to learn more about the community, and to meet, or reconnect with, new or old friends. Members also share information about discoveries they have made while exploring the area, so we all benefit from their adventure! Of course, there are always a few business items to take care of as well. See below for details on the next meeting.

Time: 7:00 PM
Where: Wolfville Farmers Market, DeWolfe Bldg., 24 Elm Avenue
7:00 to 7:30: Refreshments and socializing
