Activity Groups

We have several activity groups that meet on a regular basis. New groups can form at any time based on member interests. Non-members of the Hollis Woman’s Club are invited and encouraged to attend up to three of these activity groups to find out more about what this club is all about! We’d hope after one time with us, you’d want to join!

Book Club – Mornings

Jan Lambert, jmimil@aol.com

The HWC AM book group meets on the 2nd Friday of the month September through June. We meet at the Hollis Social Library at 10:30am. We read fiction, non fiction autobiographies etc. Everyone suggests titles. We have read Suite Francaise, Unbroken, A Fierce Radiance,The White Queen and many other great books. New members are always welcome!

Book Club – Evenings

Joanne Emus,  Jremus0322@aol.com

This book club is for members who would like to participate in a book club, but who cannot meet during the day. Currently this group meets via Zoom on the 3rd Tuesday of the month from 7-8pm.  Reading selections vary greatly (which is one of the neat things about this club!) and have ranged from political essays to lighthearted stories – and everything in between! Join us if you’re interested in a group that likes to explore all kinds of books – and “push the envelope” from time to time. Please contact Joanne for more information.

Bridge and Giggles Group

Ellen Baker, ellenvbaker@yahoo.com

Do you enjoy playing bridge? Our group is made up of players at all levels of experience and we are willing to help beginning players. We are a very social group and welcome new players. Don’t be intimidated if you are not an expert. We meet weekly at members’ homes on Tuesdays from 9am to 12pm.

Chick Flick Club

Susan Benz, susan.benz@gmail.com

Do you enjoy going to the movies with friends? We try to go once a month at approximately 7pm depending on show and location. The Friday/Saturday prior to the meeting, Susan will email a movie suggestion and date/time we will meet. All you need to do is RSVP and show up to enjoy a movie with fellow members. The typical genre is “Chick Flick” but we’ve seen thrillers, comedies, and dramas of all types in the past.

Hollis Moms’ Group

Cleopatra Weedon: cleopatrac@gmail.com

This active group for moms and their kids plans playdates, field trips and other fun activities for the younger set.  We also offer support and share information with each other.

Four Seasons Supper Club

 Bonnie Delsignore, fourseasons@holliswomansclub.org

The Four Seasons Supper Club meets four times each year. Bring your spouse, significant other or attend solo. We rotate homes so that everyone has an opportunity to host. Guests choose a portion of the meal to prepare and then bring it to the host’s home to share. Food costs for the evening are shared equally among participants. Attendees bring their own beverages. The Supper Club offers an excellent opportunity for great food and great conversation!

Out to Lunch

Rachel Tieman, outtolunch@holliswomansclub.org

Do you enjoy eating delicious food at wonderful restaurants with delightful company? The Out to Lunch group may be for you! We gather at 12:30 on the 1st Wednesday of the month to try out a different restaurant for lunch. We try to select a variety of restaurants in terms of price range, type of food, and ambiance.

Projects & Pleasantries Group

Open

Calling all scrapbookers, quilters, knitters, needleworkers, beadworkers, and other crafters! Do you wish you had more time to spend on your project? Or would you just enjoy working on your project in the company of good friends? Bring your own project to our Projects & Pleasantries Group to share good conversation while working on your individual craft. Or join us without a project, just to socialize. We meet the 3rd Thursday of each month from 9:30 – 11:30 at the member’s homes.  Coffee/tea and light refreshments (breads, muffins, fruit or crackers and cheese) are served.

Wednesday Luncheon Group

Grace McGinnis, ghsmcg@gmail.com or Linda Reiner, linda03049@aol.com

Especially for those who like to combine great food, friendly people and good times, the Wednesday Luncheon Group meets the third Wednesday at 11:30 from October to May. Members share in planning, preparing and hosting luncheons that run the gamut from “picnic casual” to “epicurean elegance”. The homes and committees are determined on a yearly basis and the cost of the food is divided among attendees.
