The WNC Satellite groups are a great way to meet people in a smaller, more casual setting. By actively participating, wonderful friendships are made. Have fun, meet people who share your interests, develop new interests, and get the most out of your WNC membership!
This is a members-only, small social group. We get together for events around town usually with music, cocktails or pot luck at someone's home, or maybe a movie with dinner or cocktails. Events will vary. Size may be limited.
Art & Craft Makers participate in many different types of activities. They may learn to create a new project, watch demonstrations or visit artistic venues.
This group meets at various local establishments to enjoy happy hour, appetizers and fun conversation.
Enjoy relaxing, getting acquainted, walking, etc. Meetings rotate among area beaches. Colorful flags signify WNC's location. Bring your own chair, blanket, snacks, drinks, etc.
Explore the Wilmington area's wonderful bike trails and neighborhoods for easy and fun rides. Following the ride, we stop for a bite to eat. We ride Fridays 2 times a month starting at 10 AM.
Readers come together once a month and talk about specific books and the reading experience. Our books (fiction and non-fiction) are selected by members. You're welcome to come even if you haven't read the current book!
If you like to bowl or just love to have fun, this group is for you! You don't have to be a good bowler - most of us are not. The cost is $6 for three games and bowling shoes.
We get together for coffee, tea, tasty treats and always much talking. Get to know your fellow Newcomers in a relaxed setting. Members rotate hosting in their homes.
Want to learn what our area has to offer? Join us as we visit various tourist attractions, historic sites, museums and other fun locations. Members receive monthly emails about upcoming events and details. Meeting times vary based on the activity.
Come to Dinner Out with your spouse, special guest, or yourself. We try a new restaurant in the area each time. Limited to 10 couples. Meets every other month.
This is not your typical Home & Garden group. We meet at many different locations depending on the program. You may see a cooking demonstration one month and a gardening seminar the next!
Experience various cuisines at locally owned restaurants. The cuisine changes each month as well as the location from Carolina Beach to Porter's Neck.
Never played? Always wanted to learn? Join us for a rummy-like game played with tiles instead of cards. We meet for lunch and then an afternoon of friendly rounds of play.
Like Opera? Think you might? We watch selections from operas, live local productions, film presentations, and Metropolitan Opera Theater simulcasts in local theaters while sharing nibbles and libations. Members also get regular emails about virtual music events.
Looking to try new food ideas and exchange recipes? We take turns hosting a themed lunch each month and share the recipes we prepare. It's good food and great conversation!
Come sip and swirl with us as we explore tasting the notes that fabulous wines offer! Members taste and discuss selected wines in a small group. We also serve small bites to complement the featured wines. This group meets once a month in a member's home. The hostess selects 2-3 wines to be featured. A fee applies.
Members and their spouse (or a guest) meet in a member's home for good company and conversation. The hostess sets the maximum number of guests she is able to accommodate. Everyone brings their own adult beverage, and an appetizer or dessert to share. Space is limited for this popular event so respond quickly! It is first come, first serve.
Join us as we explore Wilmington by walking trails in state and county parks, the beaches, Riverwalk and other locations such as Airlie Gardens and Oakdale Cemetery. We will meet on the second and fourth Wednesdays of the month at 9:30 a.m. Walkers of all fitness levels are welcome to join. Your dogs are welcome too!
