* Opportunities to continue lifelong learning

* Participation in special interest groups (Circles) which include: Art, 3 Book Groups, Cinema, Evening Discussion Group, Mah-Jong, Music, Needlework & Textiles, Poetry, Travel, Theatre, Sunshine Coast Group, a Winter Walking Group

* A varied program of lectures

* Friendships engendered by sharing mutual interests

* Club Library
