This group was formed following the success of the Gourmet Club! Our monthly meetings take place in members’ homes on the 4th Monday of the month. The group of 8 core members choose a theme at the previous month's meal. For example, in March, we chose Ukrainian food. Six of the eight members are assigned a particular course; one of the eight hosts the meal, and one buys the beverages. The recipes are chosen, prepared and served individually by each of the 6 members. (This differs from the Gourmet Group which has a “planner role” who chooses all the recipes for the menu ahead of time.). We have several members interested in attending as alternate members, should any of the core members be unable to attend. If you are interested in joining the Foodies Group, please contact us here.
The Gourmet Group had its origins in 2004 when C.M. suggested we start a group similar to one she had belonged to in Ontario. The idea caught on, and soon we were wining and dining (and doing lots of talking!) in each others homes. We meet every month except June, August and September. The basic plan is for 8 people; one person hosts, one organizes, and six people cook. Everyone takes turns organizing and hostessing. The organizer plans the menu and assigns the dishes to be cooked. We have a list of alternates to fill in if a regular member can’t attend. At Christmas time we have a wine and cheese with the alternates, and invite partners to attend. In July, we have a barbecue, again with alternates and partners. Once or twice a year when we want a change, we dine in a restaurant and again, invite the alternates. Through the years we have experienced many wonderful meals and have become a group of friends. If you enjoy cooking and can read a recipe consider joining the group! Please contact us here.
The Book Club has been going continuously for more than 40 years. Some of our members have been in the Book Club from the beginning. Each year we discuss nine books; some of us have shared almost 400 titles! This year there are 21 members. Once a year we each host a meeting in our home or lead the book discussion. During the pandemic we successfully held zoom meetings. The titles for the upcoming September through June are chosen during a summer meeting and potluck lunch. We all make suggestions then vote on the titles. The nine titles with the most votes win and form the upcoming year's focus of discussions. One of the benefits of the summer meeting is coming away with a great list of books to read in the summer....those that were suggested but did not make it to the finals. The meetings alternate between the first Tuesday of the month at 7 p.m. and the first Wednesday of the month at 1 p.m. That way, those who work during the day are able to attend every second month. We are very flexible. Members attend the meetings they want. Any CFUW South Delta member is welcome to try out the book club to see if it's a fit. For information, please contact us here.
The travel club consists of about 15 members. Some of us travel physically, others are armchair travellers. Here are some of our accomplished travels: Africa by train, Madagascar, Japan, Amalfi Coast, Scandinavia, China, River Cruise from Budapest to Amsterdam, Australia and many more exciting places. The monthly meeting of the travel club consists of a presenter, a hostess and tea with refreshments at someone’s house. The theme is illustrated with digital photos on a TV screen with an accompanying narrative. At the end we have time for questions, comments etc. It’s a great way to experience the world through different perspectives. For information, please contact us here.
Started in 2007, the Walking Group meets every Friday at 10:00 on the sidewalk near L’Aromas Coffee Shop (formerly Petra’s) in Tsawwassen. An email goes out on Wednesdays to the group to see who is interested in walking that Friday. We usually walk to the end of the dyke and back, however the route varies in the winter....approximately 8000 steps! We walk all year; it takes just over an hour and our weekly numbers range from four to seven. It’s good exercise and a great way to socialize. For information, please contact us here.
The “Social Bridge” Group meets the 2nd & 4th Thursdays of each month (September through June) at 1 p.m. in our various member’s homes. There are 8 regular players & a number of spares. We usually have 2 tables but depending on circumstances will only have 1 table of 4. We always welcome new members, so please contact us here.
For those members who would like to learn to play bridge, this NEW group is for you! Please contact us here.
