The second is for business, professional's, employers, consumers and everyone else to meet for "active networking" in a fun get-to-know-each other environment which can include games and other things where everyone will meet and get to know everyone else.
The third is community, health & social improvement type stuff.... You can volunteer to assist, it's not much work and worth it!
