Canton Newcomers & Neighbors

Where Women Connect

Interest Groups

If you have a special interest in something, chances are that other members do too. Common interests that bring members together in smaller groups can be anything from playing a card game to simply enjoying great conversation over a delicious meal. All it takes to add another type of Interest group is to have a few members willing to get one started, and others will join too!


Groups meet in clubhouses, restaurants and homes. Interest Groups that meet during the week generally conclude by 9 pm in plenty of time to get home to kiss the kids goodnight and rest up for the next workday.

A calendar of Interest Group activities are in each monthly newsletter.


Here is a sampling of some of our Interest Groups. Please contact the Interest Group Leader listed in the newsletter for more information.

Bunco is a social evening with dice in a relaxed home setting  conducive to meeting new members.  Each player brings an appetizer to share and $5 for the prize pot. Hosting rotates around player homes.


Bunco - Couples

Bunco is a social dice game involving 100% luck. Couples bring $10 per couple for prizes and a side dish to share, and be ready for a fun evening! The host provides the entrĂ©e, and beverages.
