Book Club

Book Club meets on the 3rd Wednesday of each month from October to April at 9:30 am in the Community Center unless a change is needed.
The book selection for each month  is listed in your Seasiders booklet.

Even if you can’t come to Book Club it is a great chance to read along with the club. You can always email Dot Erickson and give her your views of the book that we are going to review. You can be part of the group via long distance.
Join us and Read.
