Interest Groups

WAHHI Interest Groups are the heart and soul of connecting our members! You must be a current member of WAHHI to belong to an interest group. With over 55 different activities, you choose how you want to learn, grow, play, tour, create, cook, etc. based on the group you join. Interest Group registration occurs annually at the Fall luncheon; and also opens on-line via email after the luncheon. If you sign up online, the group leader will contact you directly. Meeting locations vary for the groups based on activity – some meet in member homes while other groups meet in restaurants or on-site with program activities. Some groups also charge a nominal program fee to cover the expenses of operating the group while others fund activity expenses.

Check out this list of Interest Groups that are active in the 2019 – 2020 Season. Please note that *Indicates the Group is Full
