Auxiliary Groups are special interest groups for PWC members who share common interests and hobbies. 

The organizing principles include:

  • Participation in group activities requires PWC membership.
  • These groups are self-managed by the participants in the group.
  • Group activities are funded by the members of that group and not by the PWC budget.
  • New groups can be formed as our PWC members desire to build and lead activities!

If you wish to join a group, please notify the organizer directly asking that your email be added to her list.
