They gather on the first Tuesday of every month at 5:30 p.m. at Rutland Regional Medical Center, and they enjoy many additional activities together such as art classes, kayaking, yoga, snowshoeing, picnics, origami, Reiki, knitting, scrapbooking, crafts, jewelry making, horseback riding, boating, tai chi, and much more.
