St. John's Events and Groups

Munpa Meeting

Our Programme Committee (St. John's) has a full lineup of exciting and fun events for our members this Fall with lots of variety. As well as our Focus and  Special Interest Groups from last year, we have three new groups, the Outing Club, the Bowling Group, and the Woodcarving Group. We are also hoping to start a Games Group in November. We also have several very interesting sessions scheduled, so check them all out. We hope to see you at one or more of these events.

Can’t find anything you are interested in?

The Programme Committee (St. John’s) is happy to sponsor new groups. If interested in forming or joining a new group – in the past, we have had interest in golf and/or tennis, a singing group, and a games club -- we would be happy to see if others are interested as well. We can arrange a room at the Lantern (35 Barnes Rd) or reserve the Mt. Scio Research Facility Boardroom for your use, provide coffee and tea and -- if needed -- funds to help the group get going, if these are needed. E-mail us your ideas at
