The Boomers

For WHC members born between 1946 and 1964, The Boomers is a social and cultural club designed to serve the interests of the Baby Boom generation. 

WHC Boomers are married, single, partnered, divorced, and widowed. Some of us have children; some of us do not. What we have in common is an interest in meeting other Temple members to create a sense of community, experience new things, and have fun. Join us for terrific activities througout the year, including biking brunches, dinners, dances, movies, celebrations, and more!

Bike and Brunch

Snap on your helmet (or lace up your walking shoes) for a morning bike ride or stroll followed by brunch on Sunday, October 1.

Walkers and bikers will meet at Oronoco Bay Park in Alexandria at 9:20 am and will head north on the Mt. Vernon Trail. Our planned departure time is 9:30 am. Free parking is available on the streets bordering the north and south sides of the park (check the signs).

The complete route will take us along the Potomac River past Daingerfield Island, Gravelly Point, under the Arlington Memorial and Theodore Roosevelt Bridges, and to Theodore Roosevelt Island. We will return along the same route for an overall biking distance of about 14 miles on the paved and mostly flat trail.

If you are walking to the north from Oronoco Bay Park, it is about 1.6 miles to Daingerfield Island along the waterfront. The Torpedo Factory is only seven blocks away.

After the ride/walk, we will all gather at 11:30 am for brunch at Bilbo Baggins Restaurant. Non-bikers/walkers are welcome to join us.

If you're interested in participating, please contact Gabrielle Grunau or Bill Grosshandler, 301-229-7630. Last-minute participants are welcome, but we will need to let the restaurant know how many to expect.

Wine Tasting and Bottling

We're kicking off The Boomers' programming year with an unforgettable wine tasting and bottling experience at Olney Winery (18127 Town Center Drive, Olney, Maryland 20832) on Sunday, October 22 at 5:00 pm. Relax with an expert-led tasting of several varieties of wine. After learning (and sampling!), we'll get a bottle of our own Boomers Private Blend to take home and enjoy.

This event costs $39 and includes a wine tasting flight, light snacks, and a bottle to take home.
