The CRAFTERS group meets the 1st and 3rd
Thursdays of each month at 1:00 until 3:00
at Folsom Senior Center. The group can learn
to make crafts, knitted and crocheted items,
jewelry, ceramics, wall hangings, paintings,
Christmas decorations, and other craft techniques
to sell at the Annual Craft Sale. The club depends
heavily on this
other community service projects.
The GARDEN FRIENDS group meets on the 4th
Thursday of each month (except November and
December) at the homes of its members. They
share gardening information and periodically take
field trips to local points of interest. They contribute
to the Annual Craft Sale by selling plants, floral
arrangements and other items for the garden.
The BOOK LOVERS group meets on the 3rd Wednesday of every month at the homes of its members. Favorite books are voted on by the members to select a list of 12 finalists for the year. They review and have lively discussions of their monthly selections at their meetings. They also oversee the "Books for Bucks" collection of gently used, donated books to raise monies for the club's scholarship fund.

An informal group, called MOVIE MAVENS, has been meeting this year on Tuesdays at the Palladio Theatre for "$5.00 Movie Tuesdays." When a 'good' movie comes to the Palladio, the group coordinator emails the Movie Mavens list. Whoever is interested in that movie meets at the theatre for an early afternoon showing. Those interested in being placed on the email list may call Janice at 916-983-8083.
Note: This is an informal group --no rules -- no commitment -- no great expectations please!
