Social Clubs

Apple Club:  Occasional meetings for those with Apple devices and computers to learn more about creative ways to Maria@AppleMentor.com
 
Book Groups: Whether you read several books a month or like to leisurely read one special book each month, membership in one of our monthly book clubs can be a great experience for you. CCNNA currently has more than ten book clubs and each club sets its own meeting date and selects its books.  Your participation will give you the opportunity to read new books that will expand your horizons and allow you to make new friends.  Book clubs are enjoyable and purposeful!  Contact Dale Rudolph dale.rudolph1@gmail.com if you want to join the exciting world of CCNNA book clubs.
 
Bunco Group for Ladies: Contact Maryanne Flynn at maryanneflynn@gmail.com
 
Bridge on Tuesdays: Bridge Club:Weekly In-Person Social Bridge Game for intermediate players at Maria’s home. Contact Maria Arapakis, Maria@AppleMentor.com.
 
Canasta: Whether you are new to the game or a seasoned player, all levels are welcome! It is easy to learn and makes for a wonderful social activity. Canasta, similar to bridge, is a partnership game, but unlike bridge, it is much easier to learn and less competitive. In fact, those who fail to pick up the nuances of bridge and it’s endless memorization, will find renewed confidence in the easier, but still challenging game of canasta. Contact Penny Steinberg at penbar8@gmail.com to sign up.
 
Chamber Music: This club is for instrumentalists: strings, piano, etc. who enjoy playing chamber music. The selections can be tailored to the instruments available. Any level is welcome. For more information contact Ann Connell aconnell1020@gmail.com.
 
CCN Single Women: This group has been meeting online via zoom over the past few months during the pandemic. The plan is to stop these online meetings in the extremely near future. We are not ready to plan in person activities yet. However, we do have a planning committee. This committee will communicate over the next few months. When we feel it is feasible to plan in person activities, we will notify the group and there will be an opportunity to sign up if you are interested. Depending on the activity there may need to a limit to the number of people attending. It will be on a “first come first served basis”. Contact Deborah Evans at debe0719@gmail.com.
 
Cinema Club: There are several CCNNA cinema clubs which meet monthly in a host's home. The host selects one or two movies for the members to watch before coming to the meeting. Because each club has chosen to keep their group small to facilitate discussion and due to limited home seating space, all current clubs are full. A waiting list will be kept; when there are enough names on the list, a new club can be formed.  Contact Terri Cohen at terripcohen@yahoo.com.
 
Exploring Denver: Join our neighbors in exploring Denver’s unique attractions through CCNNA’s authentic guided tours highlighting cultural offerings, historical sights, behind the scenes tours, and even some walking tours. Our planning committee organizes monthly tours that offer small groups the opportunity to learn more about Denver’s hidden treasures each month. Some tours have a fee for the guides or facilities. Contact Linda Barker, barkerlk22@gmail.com, to sign up or suggest tours for this group.

Pickleball: Pickleball is one of the fastest growing sports. It combines elements of badminton, table tennis, and tennis. Two or four players use solid paddles made of wood or composite materials to hit a perforated polymer ball, with 26-40 round holes, over a net.  Contact Michelle Brezinski at michellesellsre4u@gmail.com
