Welcome to Out and About

Out and About is a group for members and their guests who enjoy sharing outings together such as art exhibits, museums, performances, gardens and nurseries, hiking, biking, wineries, antiquing, restaurants and bird watching. We are limited only by our imaginations.

It works like this: You have an idea for an outing and are willing to lead it. You do the research (dates, transportation, costs, number of people) and send out the pertinent information to the Group Coordinator. The Group Coordinator distributes it via e-mail to the members.   Members who want to participate contact you (the Event Leader) directly to indicate their interest and finalize arrangements with you. At the conclusion of the event, you send a very simple report to the Group Coordinator.  Not everyone needs to be an event leader but your idea of a perfect outing may not come to fruition unless you decide to lead it.
