What we're about

An East Wichita daytime book club and social group for women (age 50ish & up.) We’ll meet once a month for a book review and once a month (or more) for a social event: brunch, lunch, happy hour, dinner, cards, board games, bridge, MahJongg, seasonal crafts, art projects, baking, sharing life skills (ex: organizational tips), museums, antiquing, thrift shopping, cultural events, seasonal festivals, etc..
It can be challenging for empty nesters, retirees, introverts, and new residents to make new friends. If you’re active, love to laugh, and are a positive, friendly person in search of authentic friendships, come give us a try!

A Man Called Ove Book Review

East Killenwood Drive

Our September book title is: A Man Called Ove by Fredrik Backman selected by Sherry Heathman. In contrast to last month's female coming of age story, this novel is about a cranky old man with a short fuse. It's comical and fun, containing some laugh out loud moments from what I understand. Yes, please!!! Bring on the laughter! Note: Due to the Labor Day holiday, our September gathering dates will be postponed one week. Instead of meeting on the first and third Mondays, we'll meet on the second and fourth Mondays-- this month only-- back to normal in October. Needs: - 2 volunteers to bring snacks on September 9th - someone to choose the October book title (if you're interested, shoot Amy a message or post on the site in discussion area.)

Beyond the Books member's event for October

Walmart Supercenter


Come paint a wood pumpkin! These wooden pumpkins and sayings are from Dollar Tree, and the Waverly Chalk Paint is from Walmart (which I have some for the teal, orange, and white pumpkins). I think I have enough paint brushes, but if you have some, please bring them. I also have some raffia, but if you have ribbons that you'd prefer to put on these, please bring. Oh, and be sure to bring an apron and paint clothes! I found these on YouTube, and have tried it. If I can do this, so can you! I'll need to know how many plan on coming, to be sure I have enough paint and pumpkins. Please call me at[masked]. Come on! This will be fun! WE CAN DO THIS!
