We are delighted to have so many families in our membership with children. Every month, we plan a family event. Our activities are usually planned around the seasons- some of our events include a Family hayride, Halloween parties, Polar Express pajama party, Valentine decorating, Easter Egg hunts, family day at Camp Denison in Georgetown, and cookouts at Stiles Pond in Boxford. We are always looking for input on events and planning help! If you would like to host or help with planning please email the Family Activities Contact.
Our current playgroup meets on Monday mornings, and members rotate hosting at their homes. In nicer weather, we sometimes meet at local playgrounds instead. This is a great way to meet families with children, and also to socialize with other local parents. We would love to arrange additional playgroups such as a Friday evening meet and greet playgroup or weekend playgroups for working parents. Please email Carrie for more information on our plagroups.
Ladies’ Night Out
Each month, we invite you to enjoy an evening out at a local restaurant for some good company and conversation. Days are rotated each month to try to accomodate all members’ schedules.
We have so many amazing natural resources in Topsfield and Boxford. Each month, a local conservation area is chosen and we hike through the woods to enjoy what our towns have to offer. We usually have young children with us, so sometimes it’s more of a “wander around the woods” rather than a hike, but it’s a great opportunity to get out into nature, learn about our local trails, and meet new neighbors. We meet through the winter too, and it’s a great way to get out during those long, cold days!
Guys’ Night Out
We are offering this new group for the 2016-2017 season! We’ll plan a meet up at a local establishment so the guys in our group can also have a chance to meet each other and network.
Evening Book Club
We meet on the third Monday evening of every month at 7pm in a member’s home. Book selection is done at the first meeting in the fall and every host picks a book. Email our Evening Book Club contact to answer any questions you might have.Check out the list of recommended books and our Evening Book Club Archive.
- Food and Wine
- Our Food and Wine group is in current need of a coordinator for the 2016-2017 year! It is a low-key, informal night out. The hostess provides the drinks and everyone brings either an appetizer or dessert. We assemble in someone’s home, and just enjoy each other’s company. If you can come, let us know whether you’ll be bringing an appetizer or dessert, and how many in your party will be drinking alcoholic beverages. The cost varies between $10 per drinker and $20 per drinker. If you have any questions, email our Drinks ‘N Snacks Contact.
- This group is for knitters and needleworkers and meets once a month. Come work on your project and socialize. Email our Needlers Contact for more information.
- Join us every morning, Monday through Friday at 7:30am in front of the Community Center (yellow house by Wayne’s) in East Boxford for an hourly neighborhood walk. Very informal and fun! We avoid rain, snow, and frigid temps. For more information email our Walking Group Contact.
- We have Ladies’ Social Bridge and Couples’ Duplicate Bridge, each meeting once per month. We welcome anyone who would like to play – as a single or a couple! Please email Ladies Bridge Contact if you are interested in playing Ladies’ Social Bridge. For questions about Couples’ Duplicate Bridge, email our Couples Bridge Contact.
