Hand and Foot Canasta
1st & 3rd Tuesdays @ 1:00
Lessons for newbies will be given in a private setting prior to play with other more skilled players. This is a very social game and you can expect lots of laughter. Very easy to learn for people who are not card players. Play at the Tompkins Funeral Home.
4th Wednesday @ 10:00
Monthly meeting on Zoom.
Every Tuesday @ 10:00, The Landings
Members play golf every week on Tuesday mornings from the beginning of May until it gets too cold. We play at The Landings course. It is a social and fun time. All skill levels are welcome. We meet at 9:45 for a 10:00 start. We make up groups randomly by picking cards. We do not give lessons, so you must know the basics, but we are not pros by any means. Many do not keep score.
3rd Friday @ 6:00.
This is a mixed partner/singles/friends group that would bring an appetizer to share and your own drinks to the hosts house.
International Dinner Club
4th Thursday @ 6:00
The International Dinner Club meets at different restaurants in the Kingston area. Members take turns hosting the dinner. It is a wonderful opportunity to taste a variety of food in good company.
Convenor: Mary Knuff
1st Wednesday @ noon.
Both lunch groups meet at a different restaurant each month. Members
Pot Luck Lunch / Brunch
Convenor: Caroline Anderson-Zsolnay firstname.lastname@example.org
4th Wednesday @ 11:00
The idea is to allow the members to get together without going to a restaurant. The person hosting decides if they would like Brunch or lunch. Everyone brings a dish to share.
Depending on the interest we may play once a week or every other week. North American style. Time and day to be determined.
Mexican Train Dominoes
2nd and 4th Tuesday @ 1:00
At the Tompkins Funeral Home (2nd floor).

Pub Night RAXX
1st Friday @ 5:00, all year round.
We meet at 5:00 to mix and mingle, order dinner at 5:30. RAXX, 665 Development Drive. Each month, shortly before the event, the convenor sends out an email asking who will be attending. As Pub Night is popular, everyone interested in attending must R.SV.P. each month so RAXX knows how much space to reserve.
3rd Tuesday of the month
We meet on Tuesday, to take advantage of cheap tickets. We will either go to the Cineplex or the Landmark theatre. Choose the matinee movie you wish to enjoy, let me know and then join us for dinner to critique the movies. This is a light, fun afternoon / evening event.
