Divas at 'For The Troops'
This becomes a tradition!

4 years in a raw our study group "Day Time Divas" dedicates a day to make care packages for our troops.

These small contributions to our man and woman who served and protect our country every day make everyone feel uplifted and this outing always gets the most attendance.

Every year we get letters from the organization with thank you notes from our soldiers serving all over the world.

Life and Times:
A Study Group to Pique Your Interest!
Life and Times

Life and Times is a great group of women meet to discuss both notable women in history and topics of interest to all of us. Each month the person who is hosting the meeting does a short bio on a woman she admires, followed by a report on a topic of interest to her. Past topics have included women inventors, art history, women poets, stroke awareness, recycling, heart health, and Jews in China. Our presentations are followed by lively discussions. We avoid political and personal topics.

Day Trippers Holiday Party
with a small group from the U.S. Army
On December 3, 2015 the Brandeis Day Trippers had their Holiday Party at the Woodland Hills Country Club.
What was especially special about our gathering is that a small group from the U.S. Army visited and told us about their many deployments. They also told us about the many, many men and women who are on deployment now making sure we are safe and free.
We spent the afternoon decorating, writing, and addressing cards and letters to our military. The address for you to write any time during the year as well is:
CO, 2-70 AR, 2/1 ABCT
Camp Buering
APO, AE 09330

Literary Potpourri celebrating their Anniversary, with the same people as they started with.

We are a book group that was established as a Valley Group and later moved into Conejo Valley.
Our Leader is Sherrie Weisman
