The group is growing... We had 15 people at the last meeting. That is great! It's not about the numbers, but it is nice to see people getting involved and building friendships. Everyone is having a lot of fun at the meetings and there is lots of interest in getting involved in other activities outside of the Thursday night group. See below for posts from Gina and Noelle.

There is talk of creating an email list. Please email me with any input: tzamarro@gmail.com.

Peace.

Davis Mega Maze 10/7/06

Everyone,

We will be going to Davis Maze on October 7. We'll meet there at 10:30, break for lunch, and be done whenever we can make our way out! October 7 also happens to be Heidi's birthday, so everyone is invited back to our place for evening festivities (including cake and ice cream of course!) Please let me know if you plan to attend so we know to look for you at the maze.

See below for more details of the maze:

It's that time of year again....time to get lost in the Davis Farmland Maze. Lights, Camera, Action! This year the theme is movies. The maze is a lot of fun, but it takes a while to complete. So, we usually meet about 10:30, take a break for lunch, and go back to complete all the activities - and there are a lot of them, from finding your way over all the bridges, to getting trivia questions correct, and all the other games hidden in the maze. A slightly overcast day is always good because it can get hot in that maze!

Gina's Activities Post

I can leave a list of ideas here! HEHEHE. .. . now someone who needs ideas or wants to show an interest in some sort of activity can just comment! That way we'll get more people to check the blog too! :-D

John mentioned the CM Boston weekend activities coming up on Oct. 6-8. The site is cmboston.com for those of you who are interested.

a list of activities: (A)dinner - potluck or restaurant or pizza or make a meal together (I'm happy to host) (B)movie + discussion (C)cards/board game night (D)bowling (E)visit Shrines (F)Hebert's make-your-own-sundae (G)dancing- there's interest in swing, though it's hard to find places to dance after learning - I started in swing but ended up liking salsa because there are actually venues to go to (H)physical activities like canoeing, hiking, sailing, kayaking, even tubing on Ward Hill in a few months (I)Worcester's 10 colleges have lectures, musical, art, and cultural activities and exhibits (Clark foreign art films on Tue,Thurs 7:30PM and Sun. around 3 until Dec. 4. for $5.50 www.cinema329.com) (J)amusement parks (K)pick-your-own fruit and maybe make crisp or pies or shortcake afterward (L)zoos (M)special activities at the Botanical Garden (N)Higgins Armory, art museums (O)Waterfire www.waterfire.com (P)volunteer projects - Mustard Seed (Q)seasonal activities - OCT. Davis Mega Maze, Edaville Cranberry Festival, Oktoberfest, King Richard's Faire, Pumpkin festivals (Roger Williams Zoo has a great one), Halloween costume party, hand out candy at hospital, Nov- thanksgiving service, think of activities to prep in Advent Dec- gingerbread houses (sounds like a kid activity, but the "grown ups" have more fun)- trip to see lights at LaSalette or Fatima Shrine, shopping trip to Emerald Square mall or Providence Mall, and there's always a million Christmas-related activities (I've got more for other months as well, but the list is getting ridiculous at this point. I'm happy to organize, but I need to know for sure I have at least a person or two to accompany me before I share and put it up. So, any interests, post and we'll try to set it up.

I was thinking of going to Providence this coming Saturday. On a nice day, Atwells Ave is the Italian section, Thayer street is the artsy area near Brown, there is the IMAX theater, three story mall, and Waterfire at night. Any interest? It can easily be all day or just an evening escursion. :-) Let me know!

One more time at the risk of over doing it:
