Buck Hillers offer skills and services to each other – organizing the book club, teaching exercise classes, helping to clear trails and prepare the swimming pool in the spring.
The art association offers also offers classes each summer, which you can learn about on their website, buckhillartassociation.com
The Buck Hill Falls Book Club began early in the 21st century and currently has over 30 participants. Each year, the first meeting is held around Memorial Day to decide what four books to read for the summer and to schedule meeting dates. The goal is to choose books that will offer perspectives that might be missed as solitary readers.
Bridge has been meeting every Tuesday for more than 85 years in Buck Hill. Now called “Tuesday Friendly Bridge,” the group meets every week from 1-4:30pm at Kerby Library with players from within the community and the surrounding area. Additionally, a Friday duplicate bridge game has evolved.
Mah Jongg arrived in Buck Hill in 2009 and now boasts a roster of more than 30 regular players.
Most of the Buck Hill players learned the game at the art association classes that are offered every summer. While it’s true that there is a bit of a learning curve getting the basics down, once mastered, Mah Jongg is intellectually stimulating and a lot of fun. There are participants of varying abilities and thus everyone can find their comfort zone at the gatherings. Games are held in Kerby Library on Monday from 2-6pm, Wednesday from 5-8pm, and Friday from 1-4pm, from June through September. In the winter, we play on Saturday at 1pm.
If you’re interested in learning the game, check the art association’s schedule, and for more information or questions, contact Karen Walden at email@example.com or (917) 902-8530.
Yoga classes are offered year-round at Paiste Pond and in the Urice Room.
