Dinner and Discussion Groups
Each month, SCNA hosts dinner and discussion groups at different restaurants around the greater Los Angeles area. This is a way to introduce new people to naturism and to dispel mistaken impressions that non-nudists may have about us. Anyone with a sincere interest in discussing naturist issues is welcome. Dinners will be “dutch.” Bring yourselves, some money for food, and your thoughts and enthusiasm. Also bring your curious friends and spouses!
Reservations are not required, but a call to the SCNA Message Center at (818) 225-2273 (or email at scna@socalnaturist,org) is appreciated so we can anticipate the head count.
