POPULAR SOCIAL ACTIVITIES FORMED BY AND FOR WINDRIDGE RESIDENTS
This very popular activity takes place in owners’ homes, rather than the community room. Owners take turns preparing one course of a four course meal, with host of the dinner serving the entrée. With each subsequent meeting, course responsibility and the host rotates with the three other participants. There are two “sessions”, one in early spring and summer and the other in the fall and early winter.
If you enjoy good food and would like to share some with your neighbors, contact Elle Hugar Laker (317-999-3858) or Ginny Hacker (317-701-1946) for more information. (As of January 2022, this activity is on hiatus due to the pandemic.) for more information.
CHEAP EATS – Out to lunch for less about $15
This fun group meets on the last Friday of each month to go to a local restaurant for lunch. Good food, good conversation, not much money – a great combination. Contact Judy Eckerson (email@example.com) for more information
FIRST FRIDAY SOCIAL

The event rotates each month, meeting the first Friday of the month from 5-7 p.m. (except January – March).
