Thank you Patricia, without your vision and creativity this would just be another group. You have created a special place for women to share an experience, to learn something new, enjoy an existing hobby, and most of all to meet other women. Thank you for your dedication, commitment, and creativity. Joining this group has been very meaningful to me!!

The range of activities available to members is exceptional and well organized and planned. We are very fortunate to have such a creative, organized, and knowledgeable organizer.

This is a great group for making new friendships, finding fun and interesting activities that appeal to many tastes, and, if you need it, support from women who understand. I've met so many great people and heard their amazing stories! Many thanks to Patricia for being such a creative and dedicated organizer. 


It is important for women to have close meaningful relationships with each other. Good friends provide a level of understanding and communication that positively affects your health, wellness and attitude. My goal is to create a welcoming group where mature women can socialize and feel comfortable with each other.

Our group activities include travel, a wide range of outdoor activities from dog sledding to kayaking, workshops and lectures on dozens of topics including health and wellness (meditation, Qigong, TCM, yoga, nutrition, grief, addiction, mental illness, EFT, essential oils, CPR etc.), writing, fashion and art, spirituality, legal and financial topics, safety and practical learning such as how to use social media or create a blog; and almost every other activity you can think of that would appeal to mature women.

Join us for dining out, movies, performing arts, wine tasting, travel, card games, bowling, private lectures and workshops (3-4 per month), book discussions, private concerts, personal growth events, community events, volunteer work, alternative health events, walking and hiking, winter sports, potlucks, day trips, tea parties, antique shopping, private chef nights, parties with entertainment, discussions, tours, glass blowing and much more.

Meet mature, open-minded kind women over the age of 48 for friendship, conversation, sharing ideas, outings and a few laughs. If your friends have moved away, if you are new in town, if you are single, widowed, divorced, married and/or retired, and if you feel the need for new friends and connections, then this is the place for you.

We were the first Calgary Meetup Group for mature women - our group is unique, very active and we encourage a climate of mutual respect, trust and consideration.  Our group is markedly different from other meetup groups with respect to the quantity and quality of our events. I am a creative and dedicated Organizer and offer my members a choice of 40 events per month.

Our group will be 5 years old in March 2015.

Please be aware this is not a networking group and members cannot promote their businesses.Most of our events are held weeknights and weekends however we do post weekly weekday lunches and coffee meetups. More weekday events will be posted if there is enough interest.

The minimum age for this group is 48. Most of our members are 50+. Members must be mature and kind to be accepted into the group. 

“Creation of the ladies is the greatest creation ever. I still think that today. Nothing better.” ~ B. B. King” 

"Why give aging a bad name? Why drag yourself like a ball and chain? Each day you have, you've had a chance to become wiser, riper, more interesting and I want to talk to people that are mature."

If you have yet to be called an incorrigible, defiant woman, don’t worry, there is still time” —  Clarissa Pinkola Estés
