“It’s all about being a part of something in the community, socializing with people who share interests and coming together to help improve the world we live in.” – Zach Braff
SAWGG‘s season runs from September through August and includes:
Monthly Friday Live Meetings:
Held in Denville. One-on-one interaction and fellowship is our purpose and reason for joining SAWGG (difficult to be anonymous here!). Doors open 7PM with mingling and munching around tables, browsing the library, and checking out/in Bowl Show entries and items on our Auction and F.R.E.E. tables. This is where our Members swap, donate, sell, or buy: fish, plants, inverts, equipment, food cultures, books – anything aquatic or garden related (click here for auction rules.) Enter a ticket for our door prize. An at-will Meeting Fund jar is available to contribute.
After 30-45 minutes, Members grab a seat around tables for brief club business, followed by group discussion and Q & A from the floor, and member show and tell from either our Facebook Group, submitted pics/vids, or item presentations.
After a brief break to refresh, browse, and socialize, we announce our bowl show winners and end with our live auction. Meetings run about 2.5 hours, but Members can drop in/out anytime.
Monthly Friday Zoom Meetings:
Featuring round-robin catching up (be prepared to talk!), followed by a guest speaker with slide program, or member presentations. Group Q&A and discussion follow. Meetings last 1.5 – 2 hours. Our Zoom meetings are recorded and put on a Member-exclusive Google G:Drive for viewing or listening to like a podcast.
Special Events (Holiday Party, Picnic, Dinners)
Member Outings (zoos, aquariums, shop hops, etc)
