Ambles, Adventures and the Arts is a welcoming place to experience and enjoy the visual arts, music, nature, local theater, outdoor physical activities, visiting different points of interest, exploring, and so much more. We also have a monthly discussion of two short stories from diverse authors but usually organized around a theme - such as nostalgia, being an immigrant, or what "home" means - or from the same author. Right now the short story discussion is held online via Zoom so you can be located anywhere to join it. Once it is safe to do so we will do this discussion twice monthly - once online and once in person at a local restaurant.
Our group’s goal is to enjoy all the Hudson Valley has to offer. We are inclusive and welcoming. The power of Meetup is in its mission. After 9/11, Meetup’s founders wanted to create a space for people to come together and support each other by connecting through common interests. At each event we endeavor to make introductions all around and encourage social connection. If you feel excluded or uncomfortable at any of our meetups, please reach out to an organizer or fellow member so we can help. We all started out as strangers hoping to make new connections. In our Meetup group, your fellow members and especially the organizers want to make sure you feel at ease and included so you can begin to make those connections. Your task is to meet your fellow members halfway and start getting to know them, too.
Our meetup is co-organized by Colleen & Diane and 6 assistant organizers - which means there can be more than one meetup on one a particular day.
