There are presently four active interest groups. Any member may start a new interest group by bringing a proposal to a Board Meeting. Many of the interest groups meet at the Clubhouse or use it on occasion.
Antiques and Museum Goers
Love art? Antiques? Shopping? Why not combine all three passions by joining our Antiques and Museum-goers group. Since the 1970s, hordes of AWC women have relished going on frequent trips to exhibits, historic homes, and antique shops. We usually sponsor 7-8 excursions each year, even continuing in the summer months. And we never forget lunch! From time to time we arrange a bus tour and invite the entire club. There is an annual fee of $5.00. Check out our schedule below…maybe you would like to join us.
The Book Group meets at the Clubhouse on the first non-holiday Monday of the month at 10:30 AM, September to June. Everyone is welcome to come, join the lively discussion, and then suggest good books for additional reading.

Concerts at Indian Hill and dinner out afterwards, a New Year’s Eve party at the Clubhouse, and the famous Kentucky Derby Party complete with mint juleps and big hats are just a few of the events.
