Common interests create common bonds

Maybe you would like to meet new people or expand your circle of friends, but don’t know how you will fit one more activity into the calendar. Hobbies, existing or new, allow us to enjoy a special interest, meet others, and connect on a deeper level.

So, if you have always wanted to learn how to make a cheese soufflé or your neighbor wants to form a cookbook club, don’t hesitate! There are lots of great community resources to get you started.

Here are a few ways to make connections through hobbies:

  • Community gardening
  • Community theater
  • Gallery or museum event
  • Sporting event
Join or start a club

  • Photography club
  • Travel club
