Join other former California residents who have re-located to North Alabama. Share stories, reminisce, help or be helped with common adjustments and culture-shock, make new friends or maybe even discover a long lost CA friend who now also lives in Alabama.

Join this group now and check back often for in person meet-ups schedued. We currently plan to meet the 3rd Wednesday of each month at West End Grill. There's no agenda, just socialize.

But don't wait an entire month to connect, visit the message board and share in discusssions with other members.

Members are welcome to organize additional acitivities.  

The only requirement to join is that you are an adult* now living in Alabama (or SoTN) and at one time lived in California. If you just arrived to AL or have been here 20+ years doesn’t matter. Member's spouse/guest who has not lived in CA is also welcome to attend.

*youth or family activities may be planned, subject to membership interest.

We're 125 CaliBamians

We just grab a coffee and speak French. Some people have been coming every week for months... it creates a kind of warmth to the group.
