Welcome to Active Alexandria Singles 45+! I have been lucky enough to have found Susan and Alan, who have volunteered to help me breathe new life into this group. I have to assume that you are interested in meeting other folks around our age who want to get out there and have some fun! I am always looking for folks willing to step up and become an EVENT HOST or possibly even an EVENT ORGANZER (an Event Organizer has limited control over the Meetup Group, but has full control over the group calendar and can email members). All it takes is 3 people to make an event go "live". Want to do something not posted? Send us a suggestion, or better yet, host the event yourself. An event host acts as the contact person for the event and helps members get acquainted. That's all there is to it.
You will frequently see events cross-posted with Susan's NOVA's Naughty and Nice group as well as Alan's Alexandria Social Scene group. I have found we have better turnout to events if we spread the word among all our memberships. The more the merrier, right?
If you are a lover of live theater (especially musicals!) I encourage you to check out my Northern Virginia Theater Group (see link below) which I have been running since July 2012. We have several events scheduled, including Girlstar at the Signature Theater in November as well as An Irish Carol in December at the Keegan Theater, and American Idiot at the Keegan in April 2016. Check it out!
All the best,
