Other Interest Groups


We meet the first Sunday of the month – October through August- at the Alameda Theatre for a matinee of a current movie, followed by coffee and conversation at a local cafe. At times we may have other events, including an Academy Awards watching party at a members home. For information, please contact Kevis Brownson.


If you enjoy cooking and sampling new foods and socializing with like-minded people, this is your group!  Individual group members/couples take turns hosting themed, monthly events.  We generally meet on the 3rd Saturday evening of the month, but we occasionally change the actual date to accommodate our disparate calendars.  The host individual/couple selects the theme, menu, and recipes and either assigns the recipes to the couples/individual members or allows them to choose one.  These are seated dinners, so a dining area with room for 10-14 people, along with ample flatware, dishes, and drinking vessels are necessary to host an event.

Spouses and significant others are welcome in the group and encouraged to join AAUW in support of our organization’s ongoing advocacy efforts and projects.

The Museum Group meets on the third Thursday of each month from September through June. We go to various museums in the Bay Area to see the latest art shows. Included most years are the de Young, Palace of the Legion of Honor, Cantor at Stanford, Asian Art, MOMA and Oakland Museums. The carpool meets at Ross’ parking lot at South Shore to leave at 9:30 a.m. sharp. We have lunch at the museum and return between 3:00 to 4:00 p.m. Interested persons may contact Judy Sparks at 510-523-6736 or  judysparks@comcast.net


Join us on the Third Thursday evening of the month from 7-9pm at Applebee’s banquet room in South Shore Center for our drop- in , self- help user’s group. It will be facilitated by new member Amy Rose whose goal is to help us all adapt to new communications technologies, whether on our smart phones, tablets, lap tops or home computers. So, if you are getting used to a new phone, trying to learn a new application or hoping to upgrade your skill levels, this is the group for you. Bring your laptops, smart phones, ipads; outlets and wifi available. Applebee’s can also provide you a glass of wine, or coffee, or bring a friend and come early for dinner!

Dates for 2017 Winter / Spring: January 19, Feb 16, March 16, April 20, May 18
