W.O.W. SMALL GROUPS UPDATE

by Bridget Backus McBride 

Studies show that stronger connections are made by doing an activity with other people in small gatherings. It takes the pressure off while trying to get to know someone. Consider joining one of the Small Groups (5-10 depending on the activity) below or feel free to suggest one that might not be here. (Be sure to put “WOWSmall Groups” in your Subject line if emailing.) Looking forward to getting to know more of you!

 The Warm and Fuzzies

 Let’s get together to knit, crochet, stitch, and chat. We’ll meet for an hour and half over yarn and threaded needle works of any kind with a coffee or tea at our side at local Newberg coffee shop Coffee Cat. (If more experienced members would like to help newbies that could be awesome!) Not crafty, but love to meet other W.O.W. members over coffee? Come anyway! Let’s bond over warm and fuzzies.  Requirements: Once every other week on Tuesday mornings, 10:00 am -11:30ish am starting September 11th.

 Global Wine Discovery

 Come join in a monthly “discovery” tasting where we all bring a bottle based on a certain themes, for example South Africa or Barolo (anything outside the USA), and are prepared to talk about it over a tasting. It would encourage us to broaden our horizons outside of Oregon and we’d all learn from each other. Requirements: Plan to purchase a bottle of wine based on our theme as well as discussing your research. Contact Sheila for times and dates.

 Wanna Go for a Walk? (Pooch Version)

 

Let’s go walking with our well-mannered doggos! Meet up to walk the loop around the golf course in the parking lot at the Chehalem Glenn Golf in Newberg (on the white event tent side).

Requirements:  Good-natured dogs, leashes (no flexi leads, please), poop bags, and one W.O.W. human in comfortable walking attire. Feel free to borrow someone else's canine if you don't have one!  Once every other week on Thursday mornings, 10:00 am starting September 6th.

 Wanna Go for a Walk? (Human Only Version)

 

Let’s go walking! Meet up to walk the North Valley Friends Trail at Veritas School in the parking lot at the North Valley Friends Church on Hwy 240 in Newberg.

Requirements:  One W.O.W. human in comfortable walking attire.  Times and dates to be determined by Group Leader.

Let’s Do Lunch!

 

This is a reboot of a lovely Small Group that W.O.W. has done before. Visit different restaurants in our area for lunch once every other week or once a month. The Small Group decides on a restaurant (usually via email) and off you go! It’s a great way to connect with other members and expand your palate at the same time.

Adventure Group

 

This is one of the original Small Groups for W.O.W members. If you’d like to resurrect this super fun activity, contact Bridget at sptdogcrt@gmail.com and we’ll get you going again.

 

 Photography Group

 

We have had a previous Small Groups photography group for W.O.W. members. If you’d like to revisit this super fun activity, contact Bridget at sptdogcrt@gmail.com and we’ll get taking fantastic photos again.
