Kalispell Celebrates 35th Anniversary of Lunch Bunch

November 2015—Thirty five years ago three members of AAUW-Kalispell formed a book club known as “Lunch Bunch”. Jane Lopp, Mary Gibson and Nancy Fenner were the three founding members and all three are still very active in the organization. A nonfiction book is selected by the group and twice a month members take turns leading the discussion to analyze the various chapters. Individual participation is welcomed and listened to with non-judgmental feedback from others.
