  Special interest groups are groups within the club that provide members opportunities to participate in various activities throughout the year. They are a great way to make new friends and meet fellow members. The groups are for members only and are coordinated by volunteer members of the club. The groups vary in size, depending on the activity and meeting location. Some meet throughout the year while others are seasonal.
