Social Interest Groups
Adult special interest groups provide a unique opportunity for members to enjoy activities, discussions, workshops and forums that cater to individual and group interests. Develop a special talent or learn more about subjects and places unknown to you. Programs dedicated to creating and maintaining an environment of growth, opportunity and interaction.
The following programs are presented by The Resource Place at the JCC.
Are you a woman who is facing a fork in the road of your life's journey? Do you want to meet other women travelers on this journey? If so, Connections is for you. When retirement or downsizing, a death or divorce, or other life cycle event jolts us out of our routines, we find the freedom to redefine ourselves. Through a series of group discussions and activities, we will share the hills and valleys of this journey; we will examine our relationships with ourselves and others; and we will support and learn from each other.
You, the participants, determine in large part the directions that this group takes. You will have the opportunity to talk and form new friendships, exchange ideas, listen to speakers, plan activities and trips, etc. Your presence will define the group. You have nothing to lose, and a lot to gain. We hope to meet you—stop in and say "Hello!"
Come and have a complimentary glass of wine and some fun with musical guest, Ken Colombo. Ken is a wonderful pianist with a wide repertoire who is well-known in the Rochester area. Join us for this fun "piano bar" kind of evening.
Interested in current events local, national and international? We cover local, town, and city issues, politics, science and other topics in the news. Topics are suggested by the weekly participants so your interests will be covered as well. No registration required. There is a break for lunch.
