 The Friday biking group is The Goats (Go Out And Tour Somewhere).  These rides are 25-35 miles.  We will try to live up to our new name and explore different routes around Denver.  Lunch is always an option.  This group is led by Fran and Barry Lazarus.  Please email blazflaz@gmail.com to receive notices for the rides each week, which will be announced two days in advance.

BRIDGE CLUB
Julie Predhomme coordinates bridge club in the neighborhood.  If you are interested in participating, please contact Julie at jeffpred@mac.com.  Make sure that you let her know if you are a beginner, intermediate or advanced player. 

CELLAR DWELLERS FUTURE EVENTS
Cellar Dwellers is one of the most enjoyable events in our neighborhood.  It is an evening of wine-tasting, good food and fun conversation.  We need volunteers to host upcoming events.  The host typically provides appetizers for the guests and will choose the wine category for the guests to bring.  Sometimes, the host provides the drinks and the guests bring the appetizers.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.   Please contact Jane Nero at janenero@comcast.net, if you would like to host an upcoming Cellar Dwellers.  Pick a month that works with your schedule, and let’s get the calendar filled up!

FLICK FLACK MOVIE CLUB 

Each month we get together on the second Tuesday and discuss a movie that we watch independently before the meeting.  The host picks the movie in advance and provides the beverages and light snack for the meeting.  If you do not feel comfortable hosting it in your home, the Le Jardin clubhouse is usually available for use.  Movie options can be current movies in the theater or movies that can be downloaded and watched at home.  New members are always welcome.  Please contact Jane Nero at janenero@comcast.net if you are interested in joining.

GUIDED MEDITATION – THURSDAYS – 9:00
Several of us have been gathering every Thursday morning.  Classes are taught by Molly Robinson, owner of Heartstrings Yoga.  She guides the group through lovely, peaceful meditation messages.  She also uses gentle restorative movements that enhance the meditation session and aide in relaxation.  These are wonderful, peaceful classes in which to learn and build one’s meditation practice in a small, intimate group.  We will be capping the number at eight.  A package of five classes runs $75, or, the drop-in rate is $20.  Please contact cbegien@mac.com, if you are interested.  We carpool to the studio - so it makes it really easy to go!  It’s a great way to make new friends and learn new tools for relaxation.
