Our members often discover they have common interests and then decide to form "affinity groups" that allow them to explore these interests together.
Whether it be playing a particular board game, engaging in a hobby, or getting together to discuss fascinating topics, members of the Pasadena Village enjoy gathering in small groups to share their common bonds. See our current affinity groups below. Find many of our group’s gatherings listed in our Event Calendar.
Many members are interested in joining a Committee to make new friendships by working with their peers on a committee for the betterment of the Village.
