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. Join as many as you like — it is a great way to meet new friends and keep in touch with current friends.
Interest Group Fair
GVNC holds our Interest Groups Fair at the September luncheon – our Fall kickoff to a busy fall and winter season as we begin to get ready for our main charity event, the Charity Auction, Luncheon and Bake Sale. As a member of GVNC, attending the Interest Groups Fair allows everyone to explore new and current interests and to join a group they haven’t tried before.
