Shared Interest Groups (SIGS)

A Shared Interest Group (SIG) brings together RCLLA members who focus on a certain area of interest and enjoy social interaction. Each SIG is led by a group member known as the Facilitator. Joining a SIG is a great way to make new friends and socialize with people who have interests similar to your own. Once you have become an RCLLA member, there is no fee to join a SIG.

MACS (Mad About Crafts)

Craft lovers your time has come. This SIG welcomes do-it-yourselfers with interests in jewelry making, sewing, quilting, knitting, scrapbooking, card making and more. Come share your skills and learn some new things too.

Facilitator: Beth Grindal,

The Philosophers

If you like the idea of Philosophy, but don’t know much about it, or haven’t had the time to learn about it — well, now’s your opportunity. We’ll explore the mysteries of Philosophy (in a non-threatening environment) from easy to follow texts and your questions.

Facilitator:  Axel Lohrisch,


Attention history buffs! Looking for someone who loves history as much as you do and enjoys discussing it? The History Group is a small group of 10 to 15 individuals who meet monthly. Each month, one member will choose a topic to present and then lead a follow-up discussion.

Facilitator: Alan Grindal

Wine Tasting

Learn about wine and enjoy it with fellow RCLLA wine enthusiasts! Today there are very good wines being produced in more places around the world at a variety of price points. The group will explore the different wines and price points to determine if price really does make a difference. The group will also explore wine and food pairings.

Facilitator: Meyer Bushman,
