Social Events | Affinity Groups

Through BHV, members connect and engage, discover and learn and enjoy each other’s company through group activities and affinity groups. As a member-led organization, our program committee-- working with staff—creates events and activities that reflect the shared interests and requests of our membership.  Learn more about the program committee  

There is a charge for some events but some are discounted and some are even free.  Transportation is arranged when appropriate.  

Strictly Social Events
Our members get together frequently -- morning coffee groups for conversation and support, informal lunches in restaurants or even in a member’s home, elegant cocktail parties and fun holiday celebrations.  We mail a monthly calendar of programs and events to all members.

Check out the BHV Calendar for upcoming events 

Affinity Groups
Groups are organized and led by members who have special interest in an activity or topic such as reading, travel, politics or art.  Members gather together usually on a weekly or monthly basis.   

The possibilities for affinity groups are limited only by members’ interests and enthusiasm.

Check with our staff to find out more about joining one of these groups, or for assistance with starting a new one.
