ACTIVITIES

Who's New in Madison offers a variety of interest groups to promote a feeling of community and friendship. If you don't see one you like, we encourage all of our members to start their own! Most of our interest groups and activities meet in the daytime, but there are a few that meet in the evening. We also have a few activities that include spouses or partners.

Interest Groups:

Book Groups
Love to read?  We have many different book groups to choose from, both fiction and non-fiction. 

Card Game Groups
We play bridge, bunco, canasta, and euchre on various days of the week.

Coffee Discussion Groups
We have different discussion groups throughout the month. Enjoy discussing travel? Want to learn more about diversity? How about current events? Or just making new friends? There is a group for you!

Couples or Singles
If you are looking for a couples' get together, we have a couples' night out option. Single and looking for a like-minded group to socialize with? We have that also.

Dividend Divas Women's Investment Club
If you've ever wanted to invest in the stock market and have not had the confidence do to so, this group can help!  No investment experience required.

Hook, Needle and Stitch
Bring whatever sewing project you choose to this group, from doing your mending to knitting a sweater. Stitch a little, enjoy some snacks and socialize.

Ladies of the Garden
We meet to discuss gardening, cooking and crafting with produce from the garden. We have speakers and outings to various garden centers.

Lunch Adventures
This group meets at out of the way, exotic restaurants in Madison or surrounding communities.

Lunch Bunch
This group meets each month at different restaurants in Madison or surrounding communities.

Mah Jongg 
There are many different groups playing Mah Jongg around the city on different days of the week.

Moviegoers and Film Discussion 
Love movies? We have three movie groups to help you keep up with all of the latest movie offerings - or maybe just enjoy and discuss some classics.

Memoir Writing
Have you always wanted to write your memoir, but haven't quite gotten it done?  This group will teach you how to go about getting it written and off your to-do list.

Not Just Wine and Cheese
This group has no agenda!  It's just an evening socializing.  Bring your spouse, partner, friend or come alone. Everyone brings an appetizer to share and whatever beverage they want to drink.

Outdoor Activities
If you want to stay active, we definitely have a place for you. Golf, tennis, pickleball, kayaking, hiking, biking, snowshoeing, cross-country skiing - we have 14 different groups to choose from. 

Who Wants to Go
This group has no set activity or agenda!  Activities vary based on what members want to do. If you have an idea for an outing or just want someone to join you on an outing that interests you, this is a great way to get a group together or find a friend to go along with you.

Luncheons:

Monthly luncheons September through May offer an opportunity to socialize with other Who's New members and enjoy lunch and a program. Guest speakers, musicians, style shows, and holiday bazaars are enjoyed by our members each year at area restaurants and country clubs.

Service Projects:

Each year, Who's New chooses an area non-profit organization and works with them throughout the September - May months to fulfill a need as determined by that organization.
