Monthly Social and Educational Opportunities
One of the defining characteristics of community is fellowship. Even though we all have completely unique stories, they are all woven and spun together through our affiliation with each other. To this end, we are always looking for ways to connect with each other in a wide variety of settings through socials, community forums, and service projects. The goal is to find and build meaningful relationships through shared interests and activities.
In the summer, what's more exciting than some outdoor fun and catch up time with your friends? Grafted Socials occur monthly from May to October and will typically include an outdoor activity and some catch up time over drinks and food. The latest information about Socials can be found here.
Grafted Happy Hour
We know how tough it is to get out of the house during the colder months. So we've put together some indoor activities for you during the winter and early spring. Our once-per-quarter Happy Hours are a way for you to stay as warm and toasty as possible while still having some time to get together with your Grafted friends. Check back here often for information on our next Happy Hour.
Virtual Social Hour
When: First and Third Thursday of each month | 6-8 PM
Where: On Zoom! Email us for the Zoom link.
Whip up your favorite beverage, grab a snack, and join us! Come as you are. Come when you can. Stay as long as you like.
