BUILDING A SOCIAL GROUP A social group is a number of women that want to have fun in there spare time. Women that want to do different things in there community, and building a sisterly bond. When I was first introduced to the social club environment was in 2012. I was told we needed strong women that had extra time and wanted to give back into the community.
