This is the group for you if you want to get out and have fun exploring the Durham area and beyond while making new friends. We have previously visited the Honeysuckle Tea House, toured the Videri Chocolate Factory, took in the sights at the NC Chinese Lantern Festival, toured the Duke Lemur Center, made a trip to the local gardens … and much more! We have a scheduled outing once per month. Your suggestions for activities are always welcome.

We meet at the Woodcroft Professional Building to carpool. We leave as soon as all that have confirmed to attend have arrived or 10 minutes after the scheduled meeting time.

February Exploration is set.  We are going to lunch at the Counting House Restaurant and the 21C Museum in downtown Durham on Thursday, February 14th, which is also Valentine's Day!  Reservations have been set up for 11:30 for lunch.  We will also be touring the 21C Art Museum, checking out the bank vaults in the basement, and maybe partake of a few extra surprises (since it IS Valentine's Day).....We will be carpooling from Sweet K, leaving about 10:45 AM.  Please RSVP to Amy B by February 10, to let her know if you plan to go and/or carpool or meet us there.  

On March 7th, we are going to be tasting many fantastic soups at Urban Ministries' Empty Bowls fundraiser in the Durham Convention Center.  Everyone will be responsible for purchasing their own tickets. Several levels are available, depending on if you want to just have soup or also take home a donated pottery or wooden bowl.  We will be carpooling from Sweet K, (time to be determined later), depending on who will be carpooling and what kind of tickets people purchase. (Some allow for early entry of 5:30 instead of 6pm.  Most people usually just get the standard 6:00 entry ticket ). Please feel free to call Amy B if you have any questions or concerns.  Also please RSVP to Amy by March 3rd to let her know if you plan to go and/or carpool or meet us there.  You can use the following link for more info about Empty Bowls: https://www.discoverdurham.com/includes/calendar-of-events/Urban-Ministries-of-Durham-s-Empty-Bowls-Event/85752/
