Activities and Dining

SVNC offers numerous interest-based Activity and Dining groups.

All activities are for members only, unless specified for couples. The annual Newcomers dues must be current.  Also, if a member fails to attend three activities without communicating the reason (travel, illness, etc.) to the group contact person, the member may be removed from the group and a new member added from the waiting list.

Ideas for new groups are always welcome. Other members might be interested in the idea too! Member should contact either the Activity Chair or Dining Chair with the idea.

More details on these groups are listed below.



There are a variety of activities based on the interests of members. New groups can be established with suggestions and interest from members.
