AS A NOTE: NO GROUPS ARE MEETING IN PERSON. WHERE POSSIBLE, THE GATHERINGS ARE BEING HELD VIRTUALLY THROUGH ZOOM.
Audio books are great for listening to when driving, walking or exercising. The audio book group will follow the format of the book exchange, only instead of exchanging a hard back book once a month we will be exchanging an audio book. We will be exchanging unabridged audio books in CD format.
Do you like reading best sellers, but don’t like library waiting lists and time restrictions or bookstore prices? Then the Book Exchange is for you. To join, buy a hardcover book from the current year’s best sellers list, either fiction or non-fiction. Your book will be rotated among the other Book Exchange members. You will receive a book on the first of each month and get your book back at the end of the year.
For intermediate to advanced Bridge players. They play the third Tuesday of every month at 7pm.
Participants take turns reviewing and leading lively discussions of books that include classics, best sellers, fiction, and non-fiction. They meet the second Monday of every month at 1pm.

On the fourth Friday of each month, members of this group will meet at a theater–location and time to be announced via email–to enjoy a movie picked by the monthly organizer. This group will be very email dependent as last minute changes in location and time may frequently occur. The organizer will change monthly, rotating through members of the group.
A variety of games (board, dice, cards, etc.) are made available by the hostess, or by members bringing their own favorites. No skill is needed, except for the desire to have a fun evening! We meet the first Saturday of the month at 7:30pm.
This group meets on the first Tuesday of every month at 12:30 at a local restaurant for a casual lunch (separate checks) and conversations cover subjects from serious to humorous.
Participants take turns reviewing and leading lively discussions of books that include classics, best sellers, fiction, and non-fiction. They meet third every third Monday of the month at 7pm.

The Travel Group meets three Saturdays a year at 7:30pm. We share our travel experiences with fellow AAUW members, their spouses, partners and friends by means of an organized presentation. This group enjoys learning about new places and cultures and loves to socialize with fellow travel enthusiasts. All are welcome to join us.
Join your AAUW friends on a once-a-month hike at different locations in the East Bay. We meet at 9 a.m., usually on the 2nd Saturday of the month, at the Bollinger Park and Ride and car pool to the various exciting locations. Besides being in the healthy outdoors, we get to see lovely vistas and enjoy the company of old and new friends.
