Out & About


Out and About was created to provide the following for all interested members:

  • Educational opportunities for members to go into the community and learn about local history, proposed and established initiatives, programs, services, exhibits and performances to celebrate and support.
  • Coordinated timing of excursions with topics that are presented at monthly branch meetings or highlighted in the media to ensure a greater depth of learning and understanding regarding the topic or issue.
  • Informal shared experiences for members in order to meet members, network, and develop working relationships.
