Blue Bling Belles


The women in the Blue Bling Belles wear blue and bling. We meet once a month for friendship and fun. Participants take turns planning and organizing interesting activities which include crafts and outings. Everyone is welcome, come and join in the fun!

We last met May 16, 2019, for a picnic lunch in Lheidi T'enneh Park.

For our next activity we plan to meet Thursday October 24th for an Art Gallery tour. There will be a sign up sheet and more details will follow, closer to the date.

Tentative Schedule for coming months
