Men’s Breakfast – Every Thursday, 9am
There’s always room for one or two more at the 9 am Men’s Breakfast every Thursday. We gather at Jack’s Restaurant on Main Street in Chico. We don’t have set agendas as we aim for lively, unplanned conversations. Any number of topics may arise during the day’s meal. We hope to see some of the newer folks at UUFC drop in for crisp bacon, hot coffee and a big welcome. Gary Collier 342-6087
Dinners for Eight –Varies
We’ve found over the years that almost any group of eight people who attend our “Dinners for 8” will enjoy the compelling conversations that emerge. The structure is simple: the host who provides the house also provides the main dish. All others contribute appetizers, side dishes and dessert. The topics roam through the interests, questions and experiences of the people at the table. We set up two to three Dinners per year. UUFC announcements provide details.
Bridge Group – First Sunday, 2 pm
Our goal for gathering is lively, spirited card playing rather than Grand Master points! We meet in the Fellowship Hall at 2 pm on the first Sunday of each month. We’re a mixture of skill levels and particularly welcome novices to the game! Our play is feisty as well as educational. Jan Spangler (614)395-9157
Wayward Mind Book Group – Third Wednesday, 7pm
The Wayward Mind Book Discussion Group investigates how our brains work in making decisions. We seek understanding of the unfathomable differences in worldview marking our current national discussions. If the books of Malcolm Gladwell, Oliver Saks and Daniel Kahneman prompt you to exclaim, “How could that be?”, then you may be “one of us!” We love discussing books that test, as Kahneman said,“our almost unlimited ability to ignore our ignorance.”Larry Jendro 533-1413
No Guilt Bookclub – Fourth Thursday, 7 pm
We welcome everyone and every subject! Our readers are both men and women, our books both fiction and non-fiction and our choices both current and classic!. Past books have included “Lincoln in the Bardo,” “Between the World and Me,” and “Me Talk Pretty One Day.” We welcome your mind, your voice and your book suggestions! Danetta Cordova; firstname.lastname@example.org
WOW! Wild, Wonderful, Wise Older Women, aged 60+ Third Wednesday, 1-3 pm
We love fun! We meet in the Fellowship Hall to sharpen our minds with games, field trips, stories and open discussions. In the past we’ve visited art galleries, driven to Vina for a wine tasting, put on a Valentine’s party and held a board game day! There’s little pattern to our choices except our enthusiasm never waivers! Please note—No topic is Off Limits! Our gatherings vary in size but there’s always room to include you! Mary Collins; 530-570-8826
Women’s Potluck Get Together First Tuesday, 6:30-8:30pm
A time for all women, all ages, working or retired to spend quality time together and share a meal of simple finger food. We will decide together how to spend the time, whether it’s a discussion, speaker, book swap or crafting or more. We will gather in the Janet Forman Room just off the Sanctuary. Bonnie Bennett 774-2274.
