Adult Socials
Throughout the year we offers adults-only social events.  Past events include an Oktoberfest, Martini Night, Bunco, bowling, wine tasting, dinner out and more.  

Book Club
Meeting monthly at a local restaurant, our Book Club discusses their chosen book over appetizers and cocktails.  The group then makes their selection for the following month. 

Community Enrichment
Several times a year we run food, clothing and other drives to help members of our Glastonbury community. We have sent food and toiletries to U.S. soldiers overseas.  We have made cash donations to other non-profits in our community.

Family Socials
The Club offers several family events each year.  Past events include a Halloween hayride and bonfire, a holiday party, an ice skating/pizza party, an Easter egg hunt, outdoor movie night, pool party and more.  These are fun ways for both the parents and children to interact.

Helping Hands
When a club member is celebrating a birth or adoption we send the family a week of meals.  We also look to help during difficult times - such as a death in the family.

Ladies' Day Events
Each month the Club plans an outing for ladies who are available during the day. Past events include luncheons, spa outings, rose garden tour and more.

Ladies' Night Out
Every other month we host an evening outing for the women of the club.  Past events include paint night, yoga class, spa treatments, recipe swap, cooking class and more.

Men's Basketball
Pick-up games are held on Tuesday evening from 8:00 p.m. - 9:30 p.m. at a local elementary school gym.  The group is welcoming new players.

Men's Golf
The Club has a league that plays on Tuesdays, May through August.  

Our Children's Playgroup meets Friday mornings at 10:00 a.m. at various parks in the area.  During inclement weather we meet at a member's home.  We are always welcoming new members to our playgroup.  It's a great way for both the children (and adults) to socialize. 

Tot Tours
Each month we plan an outing for the children in the Club.  Past events include a hay ride, apple/pumpkin picking, pizza making, cupcake decorating, park/gym dates, art class, fire station tours, karate class and library story hour.
