Our Monthly Meetings

 

MountainEars meet monthly in members’ homes or in a local restaurant.  Topics range from upcoming group outings to Disney films, musicals, etc., to the hottest Disney items on eBay -- anything in the world of Disney that captures the imagination.


A regular meeting usually begins with an hour of fellowship.  Hosts will lay out refreshments, and members will reacquaint themselves and welcome newcomers.  Agendas include a business segment – what are the interests and activities we need to focus on right now?  But most of the meeting time goes directly to fun.

 

The host might offer a game, trivia, or otherwise, to engage members.  Prizes usually are awarded.

 

A meeting highlight is sharing.  Each member can chat about his or her latest Disney ‘find,’ or talk about a just-completed or impending trek to a favorite Disney theme park, or maybe a movie or book critique.  Some will let you know where the best Disneyana items have been popping up.  The field is unlimited.


At meeting’s end, it is not uncommon for a host to provide a door prize.  The club allows up to $25 each meeting to cover such expenses.

 

Meetings are on either a Saturday or Sunday, starting at 1 p.m., usually around the third weekend of the month.  They usually are adjourned by 5 p.m.


No meeting is held in July to allow members to visit Disneyland on its birthday.

 

Six newsletters a year also keep members up to date.
