Drop-in Group Activities 

Monthly Activity Calendar

Movies of the Month
Movies are shown in the Drop-in twice a month in the afternoon, all welcome, calendar of events are posted in the Drop-in each month.

Music Discussion Group
Music Discussion Group is an opportunity for members to gather (either online or, when safe to do so, in person) to listen and discuss music and its effect.  Great for discovering music that we may not come across in our everyday listening practices, and connects members of our community through the power of song. 

Book Club
The Book Club is a group for its members to gather to discuss a shared reading experience. The group may read short stories read during the session, or take on a novel that is discussed over a several week span. Either way, members have the chance to take part in fruitful conversations about a variety of genres and styles.

Mindfulness Group
Mindfulness group works with the basics of meditation and the foundational attitudes for practice; patience, curiosity, trust, non-striving, acceptance and letting go. The group meets for one hour on Friday mornings at 10:00 for discussion, instruction and practice.

Writing Group
One of PARC longest running groups, members gather on Friday afternoons for 2 hours of creative expression. At the beginning of the session, the group comes up with a prompt (often inspired by a particular poem or poet). Then, members are provided a period of time to write (prose, poetry, or any other style) followed by a time to share the piece with the rest of the group.

Art Group
The zoom art group meets every Saturday from 3pm-4pm. Members can be provided with art supplies of their choosing. The group has social chat time while working on individual art projects. Everyone shares their work at the end of the session.
