Join us for our 3rd year of Park Chats!
In 2021, as we were beginning to come out of Cov-id and wanted to start meeting people face-to-face, we started Wednesday Park Chats. Each week we chose a different park and people brought their own chairs to come have a chat.
It was so popular that once the weather got cold we moved inside to the Barnes and Noble coffee shop at Har Mar, then back to the parks in the Spring. Park chats continue to this day!
Come join us Wednesday morning anytime between 10 and 12ish. You come whenever you want, stay as long as you want, talk or listen, it’s up to you!
Here is the list of parks for 2023. If you have any questions, email Kathy at firstname.lastname@example.org. She’ll be there with her chair and a pinwheel!

Pub Chat you say?
Yes, we occasionally add in a pub chat! In 2022 we went to High Pines Brewery in June and Sociable Cider Works in October.
If you want an idea of how fun the group is, see how we celebrated our last warm Fall day at Acorn Park!
