      Crime Fiction Book Club 

      Ready for a lively dose of murder and mayhem?  Then this group is for you! We enjoy reading a wide variety of crime/mystery fiction and are often sleuthing out new or undiscovered authors and titles in various sub-genres.  Each month a member presents on a chosen book; this is followed by discussion and then an exchange of related information (such as other books read, new authors discovered, book events, and more). Tea and friendship are also promised.

      This year’s theme is local crime writers. We are fortunate in the National Capital Region to have many crime/mystery writers. Is it the water or our political environment? This year we are excited have two authors attend and give a talk at two of our meetings. Our last get together in June is an in-person potluck picnic to let us socialize and select our titles for the next season.

      Environment

      Environment Action

      This is a group with a positive attitude. Our mission is to educate ourselves and others about environmental issues and to take action. We host a series of online public meetings to which expert guest speakers are invited. We learn how and why our environment is changing, and about projects near and far that promise to counteract global warming, reduce environmental pollution or mitigate the loss of biodiversity. We share ideas, both within and beyond this group, on how to advocate for change and act in specific, practical ways. We communicate and collaborate with other environmental organizations in Ottawa and we contact and correspond with local decision makers. Some voluntary team-building, networking and planning activities are included in our program.

      Focus on GWI

      Graduate Women International (GWI), our international arm, advocates for women's rights, equality and empowerment through access to quality secondary and tertiary education. GWI works toward a world where 100% of girls and women achieve education beyond primary school. Members are able to design the group’s activities for the year. We work to understand the reality of education for girls and women in other countries and at the broad international level. Members strive to keep up to date on issues that deserve our attention and understanding and then lead a discussion. We share this knowledge with our membership through the Capital Carillon ‘Do You Know Who We Are’  articles and on this website.

      Games

      Bridge

      Please contact interestgroups@cfuw-ottawa.org if you are interested in convening a bridge group


      Mah-Jong
      Mahjong is a game played with tiles, typically with four players around a table. The goal is to complete your hand before other players. There is no universal version of the game, but once the basic procedure is understood, players find no difficulty in adapting their game to another set of rules. In the CFUW group, we play a version of mahjong that originated in Hong Kong and while it is different from the American mahjong that many are familiar with, our rules will be easy to pick up. It is a game that can be challenging and mentally stimulating, but it is the chance to be social and enjoy each others' company that makes mahjong particularly fun. Whether you've played before or not, all levels of experience are welcome!

      The group is now meeting in person in members’ homes.

      Tuesdays, 12:30 p.m.


      Modern Board Games

      Anyone tired of Monopoly or Clue, cribbage or backgammon?  Join the new Modern Board Games group. The purpose of this group is to learn and play the newer games on the market, to challenge our minds,  and of course, to have fun!

      Some examples of games we will play are Settlers of Catan, Castles of Burgundy and Ticket to Ride.  Any game that you would like to bring and teach us to play would also be welcome.

      If interested, kindly contact the convenor and you will be contacted when the group is making plans to meet. We plan to meet in person using OPH guidelines, with member agreement.

      1st Wednesday of the month, 1-4 pm



      Garden Club

      The CFUW Gardening Club aims to bring together members to promote the joy of gardening.  In this setting, members will share their passion for gardening, learn from the experiences of others and develop friendships. Whether you are an experienced gardener, or one that is just starting  down that path, this group will welcome you. The only prerequisite is the desire to enjoy garden spaces, in all their shapes and sizes. No matter what your gardening interests may be—from pollinator gardens to putting your garden to bed in the fall—here you'll find fertile ground to explore them and people to share them with. If this group appeals to you, please join us as we explore the wonderful world of gardening.

      4th Monday, 2pm, Sept., Oct., March - August


      HIPPY Ottawa

      CFUW-Ottawa made it a strategic priority to become involved in a project that would promote lifelong learning and improve the lives of women and children in our community.  The project selected was HIPPY Ottawa.


      The HIPPY program focuses on helping low-income parents in Ottawa, usually immigrants, prepare their three- to five-year-olds for school. Numerous benefits include better preparing children for entry to the Ontario school system; empowering parents to prepare their children for school; breaking down barriers to the integration of recent immigrants to Canadian life; and mentoring those parents and program workers interested in pursuing learning or career plans.

      Historical Study

      The History Studies group has chosen a popular theme for the 2023-2024 season, ‘A Global City and their Historical Evolution’. Such cities as Tokyo, Jerusalem, Shanghai, and even Timbuktu, a medieval city in central Africa, will be investigated. At a particular meeting, the member will present the result of her research on the city she has selected, in the form of a Powerpoint presentation. This is followed by a group discussion.

      Meetings are held on the fourth Wednesday of the month, from 1:00 to 3:00 in the afternoon at the New Edinburgh Square Residence, 420 Mackay St.

      4th Wednesday, 1-3 pm

                                                                                                                                                        

                                       

        


      Movie Club 

      Are you interested in watching movies that inspire, educate, and make you think? Once a month, a movie is selected for Movie Club members to watch. The selection includes foreign films, documentaries, hidden gems and others. The movie may be selected from an online site (usually Netflix, but also CBC Gems and NFB) or one playing at the Bytowne or Mayfair Theatre. The choice will be dependent on the Bytowne's or Mayfair's selection ... and the weather!

      How does it work? The season begins in October 2023.

      • For online films, an email is sent to members at the beginning of the month to let them know the choice of film. Members can watch it at their leisure at home. Those who wish to share their thoughts about the movie with the group can email their review/feedback. Later in the month (4th WEDNESDAY, 7:30pm), a Zoom discussion takes place for those who wish to discuss the movie with others.
      • For movies at the theatres, an email is sent to members at the beginning of the month to let them know the choice of film, date and time, and theatre. We will meet at the theatre and watch the film. There may be an optional dinner after the movie to gather and discuss the film (and other things!).

      Even if you don’t watch the films every month (it's not mandatory), you will have a list of “curated” films to add to your watch lists for a later time!

      Film choice sent at the beginning of each month.

      For online films, there is a Zoom discussion on 4th Wednesday at 7:30pm to talk about the movie.

      Music Appreciation

      Members of the Music Appreciation Interest Group are classical music lovers who want to learn about and enjoy great music. The group meets in members' homes or (hopefully) in a retirement home. We also use ZOOM, with the intent of using a hybrid approach of being in person and on ZOOM.  A general theme is chosen at the beginning of the year and this year we have decided to focus on orchestras and their conductors.  Members sign up to make presentations from October - May (except January) on topics relevant to the overall theme. Presentations are typically a combination of some background information and music from CDs and/or YouTube videos, all of which make for lively and informative sessions. We look forward to some wonderful orchestral music.

      We welcome new members and new ideas for enhancing the enjoyment of classical music.

      University Women Helping Afghan Women (UWHAW)

      For the 2023-24 season, UWHAW will be supporting education for Afghan women in Afghanistan by providing female university students in Kabul, Afghanistan with devices and internet access. Following the ban on girls attending university by the Taliban in December 2022, online learning is the only way for these girls to get an education, but many have lacked the resources to be able to do so. Our support program will allow them to re-start their education and provide them with hope for their future.

      In their monthly meetings, UWHAW members will continue to educate themselves about Afghanistan and the evolving situation. We will keep informed and knowledgable about life in Afghanistan, particularly the many challenges faced by women and girls. 

      We will also continue to raise awareness in our community and beyond, and advocate for their human rights.

      This group is interested in outdoor walks to explore neighbourhoods and interesting areas of Ottawa – everything and anything from the locks by the Chateau Laurier to the gracious old historic houses of Sandy Hill. Perhaps a walk will take us along the river or along the canal. Every month there will be a volunteer convenor who chooses the location of the walk and sends out the notice to the group. We will meet at 10:00 am on the fourth Monday of every month, weather permitting, and walk for about 90 minutes. However, the convenor would be free to opt for a weekend walk to accommodate those with busy weekday schedules.

      4th Monday, 10am


      Wine & Spirits

      Have you ever been curious about the difference between a Cabernet Sauvignon and a Malbec, or the difference between Cava and Prosecco? This group is interested in learning about – and tasting -  different wines and spirits, and perhaps learning a little about cocktails too. If these are topics that might pique your interest, we’d love for you to join us on the second Thursday of each month from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm.  Our plan is for this group to meet in person.

      2nd Thursday, 4pm


      Women with Hammers

      Members learn through a variety of mechanisms such as hands on workshops, in person tours and virtual meetings the basics of repairing, replacing, upgrading, installing  and creating a variety of things in and for their home. This includes learning about the materials, tools, processes and skills required which permits them to either do-it-themselves  (and earn bragging rights) and/or hire a qualified person to do or assist them.  

      2nd Wednesday of the month, 10 a.m. to noon

      Writing


      Writers’ Workshop

      Our group meets once a month in fall and winter to write, to learn, to hear, to tell stories, and to critique, usually the written work of one or two members each time. We give each other information on various readings, workshops and organizations (e.g. Canadian Authors' Association, book fairs, the publishing industry) for writers. Several of us have published books while participating in the Writers' Workshop  Group and some distributed worldwide (see list). Others are just beginning their writing journey, and some are midway.


      Zoom meetings initially, adjusting, with members’ approval, to in person meetings using OPH guidelines.

      Time:  1st Thursday , 7:15pm
