Walk in Herrontown Woods! Sept 18

Weather-permitting, we will kick off our Walking Group on Saturday, Sept 18, 10 am with a walk in Herrontown Woods, 600 Snowden Lane, Princeton.  We'll meet in the main parking lot by the information bulletin board.  The entrance and parking lot can be a bit hard to find, but Google maps generally does well.  More details about the woods: Friends of Herrontown Woods  Please RSVP to Diane at to be contacted if plans change due to weather!

Virtual Book Club Sept 21

Book Club will meet via Zoom on Tuesday, Sept 21, at 7 pm.  We will be reading reading Girls Burn Brigher by Shobha Rao.  For details and to request the Zoom link, contact Diane at .  

To get on the email list for Book Club, and for information on the Zoom link (while we're remote), contact Diane at the email above. We generally meet on the second or third Tuesday of each month. 

Special Interest Groups on Hold

French Rendez-vous is an opportunity for casual French conversation and instruction led by Brigitte, a native French speaker.  These may resume this fall, depending on when Brigette returns from Europe. 


       Sept 13, 7:30 pm, Monday - Conversation during Social Distancing via Zoom

       Sept 18, 10 am, Saturday - Walk in Herrontown Woods

Activity Ideas

Other local ideas in the works include a Virtual Cooking class (anyone like to lead one?) and a Trivia Night.  If you have ideas for activities, whether virtual or otherwise, we welcome your involvement and suggestions!

Information about upcoming events and other plans will be posted here, and will be included in the PA3 newsletter emailed monthly.  To join our new Facebook group, look for 'Princeton Women's Network of the Princeton Area' on Facebook or email Hanaa.  We welcome ideas for meetings and interest groups!
