The following are summaries of the FAUSA virtual activities for FAUSA members. Dates, times and contact information are available in the Members section of the website.
FAUSA Virtual Mah Jongg
The FAUSA Mah Jongg group meets every second Thursday morning at 4pm Pacific (7pm EST). We chat on Zoom while playing together online at www.myjongg.net. We play the National Mah Jongg League version of the game, but if you’ve played other versions, we can help you get up to speed very quickly.
FAUSA Makers Craft Group
Join us for our virtual crafts group once a month at noon ET. Quilting, knitting, paper crafts, mending...and lots of good conversation!
FAUSA in Motion
FAUSA in Motion encourages you to get out and move, and to take advantage of the many benefits you gain from being physically active. In conjunction with FAWCO’s Clubs in Motion initiative to encourage members to stay physically fit and connect with FAWCO friends, FAUSA members submit activities on the 5th of each month to the FAUSA in Motion coordinator. Some examples of activities are walking, cycling, jogging, hiking, kayaking, dog walking, golfing and skiing. In addition, three or more FAWCO members exercising together can submit their distances/times.
Wine Time with Amy Wine Tasting
All courses are held on a Saturday at 4pm Pacific (7pm EST) and delivered via a Zoom meeting. These online sessions will be limited to 20 minutes or less for instruction, with time after for questions and socializing with members. Amy will advise in advance as to which wines and/or foods to purchase, so that everyone will have a similar tasting experience.
We play casual bridge every Friday afternoon, using Zoom to chat and Bridgebase.com for games.
Film discussion once a month.
FAWCO Club Reunion Groups
Want to get together with friends from your old FAWCO club who are now living in North America?! Have a Zoom social hour and reconnect!
FAUSA Texas Book Group
FAUSA Texas Book Group
FAUSA members in Texas connect monthly.
What in the World Book Club
We mostly focus on politics and current events, including current interpretations of past events. We usually meet the last Thursday of the month, at 6pm ET. All are welcome to join this lively (and enjoyably opinionated!) group of readers
FAUSA Virtual Road Trip
The FAUSA Virtual Road Trip is a virtual journey with your fellow FAUSA members. Working in teams, participants log their daily workouts online. Each mile logged moves the team along the route. Any activity can be applied. Most common are running, walking, swimming, and cycling. The road trip begins in February and continues through to the fall.
FAUSA Social & Speaker Series
The Social and Speakers series features FAUSA members and FAUSA-related speakers and topics, along with some social time to catch up and connect with old and new friends. We meet regularly. 2023 topics included Nancy Petersen on women’s wear, Tracy Matheson, founder of Project Beloved; Fran Mainella, first woman to lead the National Parks Service.
