Introducing TWO new Interest Groups

Toastmasters

GFFN is proud to announce plans to form a Toastmasters interest group. This is a wonderful opportunity for GFFN members to find their voice and gain more confidence in speaking, whether it’s for professional or volunteer purposes or simply communicating more effectively with friends and/or family members.

The Travel Party

GFFN's newest event takes you across the globe for an hour-packed adventure. Each program features a different country, with host Eileen Curtis braiding history, culture, experiences and photos in her presentation. The party then transitions to interactive discussion, including shared experiences of participants and questions for future travelers.

If you would like to learn more about either click on the name above to be taken to their page filled with more information.  To join the interest group, go to your Profile Page to Edit Profile and sign up. Be sure to SAVE your changes. Further information will be e-mailed directly from those lists.

      COVID Update

      The safety and well-being of our members is of paramount importance. Great Falls Friends & Neighbors is mindful of the health risks associated with COVID-19 yet hopes to continue its mission during this unprecedented time.  

      Therefore, with respect to all club “in-person” social gatherings, we ask our members take an extra moment to assess their own health, recent travel, and interactions, and make prudent decisions about participating in any club event if you have had any reason to question whether you may have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus or if your special medical circumstances place you at unique risk.  At a minimum, you should refrain from attending any “ in-person” club events if you have been exposed to the COVID-19 virus within the past 14 days, you are not feeling well or if you have any concerns about your own underlying medical conditions. With this in mind, we will be reasonable and flexible with regard to cancellations due to COVID-19 health issues up to and including the day of the event this club year (2020/2021). Great Falls Friends & Neighbors’s events endeavor to follow all guidelines issued by the Commonwealth of Virginia to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.  Please refer to the  VDH.Virginia.gov  and cdc.gov websites for current information, requirements, and guidance. We will also make virtual events and options a priority, whenever possible.

      Attendance at any of our events is voluntary and at your own risk.  Great Falls Friends & Neighbors does not assume any risk or liability involved with your attendance at any event.
