June Activities Update

Congratulations to Andrea (Andy)  Britton who was elected at May’s meeting to be Activity Director for the coming year. Andy has done an amazing job co-leading the Day Trips group for the past 2 years, and I know she’ll do great things as she takes on responsibility across activities. You’ll hear more from her starting with the September update.

Andrea ‘Andy’ Britton is shown during the extended day trip to Asheville and Biltmore Estate.

As Andy moves to her new position, we are looking for someone to co-lead the Day Trips group with Tana Anderson. We also need leaders for the RV group, Mexican Train Dominoes, and the Thursday afternoon Mah Jongg group (the current leader will continue to help, but will be traveling more and not always available). If you enjoy these activities, please consider stepping up to help lead a group. The time commitment is very manageable and the groups will only continue if we can find people to lead them. Please reach out to me or the current group leaders if you’re interested or have questions.

Of course, in the meantime all of our activities continue—there’s something for everyone, from hiking to sports to games to trips.

• Now that the weather is warm, the boating group is ramping up with several opportunities, including opportunities for kayaking as well as gathering on the water for the Footloose on the Neuse concerts this summer. No boat is required. Check the boating page on our web site for details.

• The RV group is planning a trip to Bandits Roost Campground, located on the south side of W. Kerr Scott Reservoir in western North Carolina, in late July. There are also plans for a trip in November, but activity beyond that will depend on finding a new group leader.

• The “out of town” Day Trip for June is a visit to Kinston for a fun day of socializing, food and professional baseball. Kinston’s minor league team, the Wood Ducks, will be hosting the Charleston Riverdogs, an affiliate of the Tampa Bay Rays. This could be the last year for professional ball in Kinston for a while as the Wood Ducks will be heading to another pond in South Carolina  as early as 2025, so you won’t want to miss this. Details for the June local day trip are still being worked on, so stay tuned for that, as well.

Whatever your interests, there’s sure to be something for you—all you have to do is sign up!
