Dining In Group

This is a good activity for getting to know others in the club.

There is a sign up sheet in the fall and the winter. Groups of three or four (couples or singles) are organized and each couple or single hosts a dinner. This does not need to be too complicated.

Each group decides whether the meal components will be rotated or if each couple will provide the entire meal. By the time you have eaten three times together, you know each other pretty well.


Dining Out Group

It is always a casual and friendly event with The Dining Out Group.

We are blessed with a bountiful choice of fine restaurants in the Comox Valley. The Dining Out Group enjoys the fruits of some of the finest tables in the valley featuring fresh seafood, local meats and vegetables, and cuisines from around the world. But best of all, the smiling faces at your table tell you that you can still sit down with a lively group of friends that will pique the palette of your intellect, while you are satisfying the palate of your appetite.

Great camaraderie and fine food are like a tasty cocktail: the ingredients and the mix make for a delightful treat.

Why not come and join us?.


Barbeque Group

The Barbecue group is subdivided into subgroups of three pairs. Each pair hosts a barbecue once during the barbecue season, Generally one pair will host, providing the meat of the meal. A second pair will bring an apetiser and the third pair will provide the dessert. Often the guests bring wine.

Sometimes, if members desire, the Coordinator will organise another round of barbecues, involving different articipants.


Lunch Bunch Group

This is another good activity for getting to know others in the club.

On the third Wednesday of each month the group meets at one of our fine Comox Valley restaurants for food and fellowship. They dine a la carte, so it's easy to indulge oneself or follow a specific diet. Fellowship and Food go together like a knife and fork - why not come along and enjoy yourself? You'll be glad that you did!!
