Getting Together with Other Members


As a Village member, you are encouraged to indicate your interests with the goal of connecting with other members who share similar interests.  These include activities such as dining out, watching movies, attending theater or concerts, gardening, arts and crafts, etc.  Click here to see a more complete list.  As you find others who enjoy the same activities, you can contact them by phone or email to get together.



Member Interests 


To see how this works, go to the Membership Directory and search for other members with the same interest.  Use the pop-up Search box (the magnifying glass in the black circle will bring up the Search box), and use Search by Interests to find others.  Click here for more complete instructions or call the office at 503-746-5082 for a staff member’s help.
