| Interest Groups

UWC sponsors 24 interest groups, each led by a volunteer chairman and/or a co leader. Each group has regularly scheduled events that are planned at the beginning of our club year. The events are generally scheduled from September through May. Some groups do have events throughout the summer. Our interest groups are designed to promote an atmosphere to develop friendships, an opportunity to volunteer and a way to learn new things. 
 
This year, 2021, we continue to meet challenges the pandemic has caused  Some groups will meet via zoom, others outdoors, or follow the restrictions recommended by CDC.
