Normal event schedules will recommence once Covid restrictions are lifted and staffing shortages are remedied


The monthly luncheons are usually the first Thursday of the month at the Riverside Country Club, however, due to widespread staffing shortages experienced throughout Bozeman at this time, Riverside Country Club is unable to accommodate our luncheons.  Please stay tuned for updates regarding luncheons, as we will let you know when and where they will resume.

If and when Luncheons resume,  GVNC typically invites interesting speakers from throughout the valley who present programs on various topics or presents a show or musical performances by local musicians or groups.

In addition, members bring food donations which are delivered to the Gallatin Valley Food Bank.  Typically there is a theme for food donations at each Luncheon.  This has been a successful undertaking over the years, donating thousands of pounds of food to the Food Bank.

Please keep in mind when Luncheons resume:

  • Reservations and cancellations must be made by the Sunday prior to the luncheon
  • Our GVNC Treasurer will invoice “no shows“ for the full amount
  • Payment at luncheon can be cash, credit card, or check made out to GVNC
  • We are unable to make change for $50 or $100 bills
  • No soliciting, marketing or business activities are allowed
  • Luncheons are not “Mom’s day out” as we have no child care facilities.

Non-members may attend luncheons (up to three total events) prior to joining our club.  When you attend a monthly luncheon as a guest or new member, you are greeted by a Hospitality Chairperson who will help you find a table and get acquainted with others.  You are also introduced as a guest or new member of the group during the business meeting.  We make a special effort to ensure everyone feels welcome.
