Interest Groups for Members
Whether you are new to Gallatin County or have lived here for years, GVNC provides an opportunity to make new, longtime friends through fun-filled activities. Joining an Interest Group is fun and you get a chance to visit with others in informal settings of your choice. This is an important part of our organization, as it allows us to get to know others with our same interests.
As an active member, you may visit our members-only listing of interest groups, complete with contact information. We make it so easy to become involved in doing the things you love!
