At Chapter Meetings, where most chapter members meet monthly at the Northview Senior Center (5255 Grand River Dr. NE, Grand Rapids, MI 49525) there is generally a speaker.  During Winter months meetings are held on Zoom. There will be times when meetings do not meet there for various reasons  (election days and other times when the Senior Center is not available.)  Please check the calendar tab on this web page for meeting time, location and speaker topic updates.  January and February meetings generally are held on ZOOM.



Joining a neighborhood group is an opportunity to get to know members better, work on sewing projects, learn new skills, or participate in group community service. Please contact the group leader to find out the current focus and if there are meeting changes.
