Downtown Morgantown Shop Hop

Do you want to learn more about our great shops downtown? Join us for a fun morning of walking, shopping and eating. We will meet on Thursday, July 28, at 9:00 am. Our first stop will be at the Old Stone House downtown and we will continue on to area businesses. We will end our trip with lunch around 1 pm. More information is coming to you via email from Sally Kirkpatrick, our Special Activities Director. If you have a new neighbor, bring them along!


Each year we gather together with our families at Cooper’s Rock State Forest Park to kick off another year of Club activities and get to know our new members. Please mark your calendars:

SUNDAY, September 18, from 1-4 PM. We have Shelter 1 (handicap accessible) reserved. Each member will be asked to bring a food/supply donation to make this Pot Luck Picnic extra special. There is no cost, just come and enjoy the day with us. Family members are welcome! More information will be coming to you via email.


Our first annual Welcome Coffee will be held on Wednesday, September 7 from 10-12 pm at Denise Berrebi’s house. Our Board Members will be providing Brunch so there is no need to bring anything- just yourselves. This is a great way to get back into Club activities, meet new faces, and get more information from our Directors and Interest Group chairs about our events, groups and community. We hope to see ALL our members there!

Volunteer Opportunities

There are always opportunities to help out within the Club. We offer positions on the Board, committee work, interest group chairpersons, and are still in need of FUNDRAISING ideas. Please contact the President, Denise Berrebi, or any other member if you have questions or ideas.
