This group is for women over 50 who would like to get together to socialize, meet for lunch or occasionally go to a museum, the theater, an art show, or movie. The purpose of the group is to socialize, make friends, have fun! Most Meetups will be on Saturdays about midday, but not every week. If you've ever found yourself wanting to go to an event, but not having anyone to go with you, this group may just help with that. Our calendar is open for members to suggest meetups (subject to the Organizer's approval). All we ask is that you come meet us first & get to know us a little before posting a meetup.
Requirements to Join
You must have a photo of yourself on your profile (not your pets, grandkids, etc.). You also need to use your real name (first or middle - whatever your friends call you) and not a cutesy or cryptic internet screen name. This will help us recognize one another & put faces with names, since the purpose of the member profile is to help us get to know one another. Your request to join will not be approved until you comply with this requirement. Meetup enables you to use different photos & names for each group you join, so there is no need to change your main profile to meet our requirements, just your profile here.
How to RSVP
Please utilize the RSVP button to let us know if you're coming. If you cannot make it, please change your RSVP to "No" by clicking on the RSVP button & changing your response. If you do not change your RSVP & you do not attend, you will be counted as a "No Show". Anyone with excessive "no shows" is subject to having their RSVPs changed to "No" by the Organizer on future events to allow other members to attend. Members with excessive no shows might also be subject to removal from the group.
It is poor etiquette to RSVP & not show up or wait until the last few days before an event to change your RSVP. If an event has a limited number of slots, its not fair to the other members to reserve that slot for yourself if you're not serious about attending, so please be cognizant of others & your RSVPs.
Yearly membership dues are $10 and will help offset the Organizer dues charged by Meetup and encourage more involved members. Yearly dues are subject to change depending on the size of our membership and fluctuations in fees charged by Meetup.
Events that require a ticket or a deposit for reservations will have an event fee button. Members will be required to pay the fee in order to RSVP. The refund policy will vary with each event depending on the policy of the venue. Read each event description & refund policy carefully for specifics. Prepaid events are subject to online transaction fees. The online transaction fees are estimated by the organizer when the event is posted. If the estimated amount paid exceeds the actual amount charged, the difference will go into the pool to offset organizer dues and operating expenses.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
