Affinity Groups

Life is better in Community.

Join us this summer as we take a break from Community Groups and assemble as Affinity Groups. Affinity Groups are centered around building relationships and community over shared affinities. We have various Affinity Groups that meet Monday through Friday every week of summer. Join a group or a few this summer and enjoy our Branch community. Affinity Groups will begin the week of June 17th unless stated otherwise.

This group is open to all people who have or have never played disc golf before! It’s free to play and we will meet at the disc golf course at Willamette Park each Monday at 1pm. There may be a disc or two to loan out for the day but it would be best if each player had one disc of his or her own (play it again sports sells used discs for $5 or $6). Feel free to text Mitchell if you have any questions.
