January Activities

Walking Group
Tuesdays at 9:00am

Walking group is going strong!  Come out on a Tuesday and join us.  Walks are about an hour to an hour-and-a-half in length.  Email Claire at clairenedham@gmail.com to be added to the email group and receive the weekly walk details which are typically sent out the night before.

Book Club
Thursday, January 9 at 7:30pm

Our book for January, Circe by Madeline Miller, is a #1 New York Times bestseller and has been named one of the best books of the year by over twenty-five different publications and organizations. Circe is both epic and intimate in its scope, recasting the most infamous female goddess from the Odyssey as a hero in her own right. With unforgettably vivid characters, mesmerizing language and page-turning suspense, Circe is a triumph of storytelling, an intoxicating epic of family rivalry, palace intrigue, love and loss, as well as a celebration of indomitable female strength in a man’s world.

RSVP: email Priya at priyanpatel@yahoo.com before Tuesday, January 7th.   Location details will be sent out the day before to those able to attend.  Members are kindly asked to bring a bottle of wine or an appetizer to share.

Lunch Bunch
Wednesday, January 15 at 12:00pm

Join us for the first lunch bunch of 2020 at the lovely Cafe Escadrille in Burlington.  Its stunning architecture has all the warmth and charm of an elegant country estate complete with the Grand Parlor’s magnificent stone fireplace.  The lunch menu features the very best of New England fare – food and traditional dishes that have been valued for generations.

Where:  Cafe Escadrille, 26 Cambridge St, Burlington

RSVP: email Kim at kimwcramer@gmail.com

Bunco (& Left-Right-Center)
Wednesday, January 22 at 7:00pm 

Bunco Night is an opportunity for the ladies of LNN to get together and socialize.  The focus is on meeting people and having fun – the game itself is very simple and easy to learn.  So if you have never played before, don’t worry!  It’s especially great for people new to LNN because you’ll be put at a table with 4 people and then you rotate tables all night, so you’ll have to chance to meet lots of people.  

Bring: $5 ante for Bunco; $3 for L-R-C (exact amount appreciated!); and a beverage or snack to share

RSVP: email Jyoti at jyotijustin.realtor@gmail.com or Deepa at deepagajaria@gmail.com for location details and if you have any questions
