Once a month, a group member organizes a gathering for a meal and fun activity either at their home or local restaurant. These gatherings often have a seasonal, holiday, or other type of theme like Halloween, Chinese New Year, or Pirates Day. These gatherings the participants an opportunity to catch up with each other while having fun. Service projects are also often on the agenda.
