Shrewsbury – With newcomers to town and current neighbors too, Shrewsbury Social Club (SSC) strives to build new friendships between women by offering groups within the club for women with many different interests. Under a new board this year, the objective of SSC is to include women of all ages, walks of life, and backgrounds in a group that nourishes them or just gives them a space to have some fun.
Many women now lead a fast-paced life and have a full schedule no matter what their stage of life. As the demands on women's lives can be relentless, it is important to make time for enjoyment. Whether kids have just left the nest, you are recently divorced, or you have young children and need some “Me time,” there are so many groups within SSC you are sure to find something that interests you. New club President Cynthia Centerbar, of Grafton St., has been a member for many years.
“I had been a resident of Shrewsbury for six years when my daughter went to college, leaving me with a void I needed to fill,” she said. “I joined the book club expecting to share a few good reads and make a few new friends. What I got was so much more; I got an organization that connects me with my community.”
This year's schedule is full of fun and exciting events.
The SSC is open to residents of Shrewsbury and surrounding towns. The SCC holds club-wide social events, and members can also participate in interest groups within the club such as Wine Tasting, Recipe Club, Daytime and Evening Book Clubs, Golf, 40+ Club, Ski Club, Bunko, and Community Service Club. In fact, Shrewsbury Social Club has been very active for many years in donating expertise, money and time to the community of Shrewsbury, including the Shrewsbury Public Library, Shrewsbury Youth and Family Services, SELCO Share the Warmth, and most recently donated over 150 items to St. Ann's Parish Humanitarian Services.
