A NEW GROUP FOR YOU AND ABOUT YOU!
We are a collective group of women who will laugh with you, listen to you, understand you and sometimes share great nuggets of wisdom too. Here, you can come as you are! Just relax, kick back and be yourself with the girls. Simply suggest some ideas, host an event or just tag along for the fun!
If you're a single or an attached woman 40+ and over who's optimistic, positive and outgoing or even a bit shy looking for fun and want to enjoy life even more, this might be the meet up for you! Please leave all the drama at home and come and enjoy the relaxing company of great fabulous women. All you're asked to do is show up at events.
Our events include:
Theatre (indoor and outdoor),
Breakfast, lunch and dinner get togethers,
Outdoor activities such as snowshoeing, cross country skiing, hiking
Card games and boardgames,
Potlucks and wine cheese events,
Special events around town,
Seminars with interesting speakers,
Laughing, sharing stories about our lives and so much more!
You'll be surprised how comfortable and easy it is to fit in with this great group of women! Most importantly, our mantra, "you'll forge friendships that will last a lifetime!"
Oh and don't forget whenever you can...."Pay It Forward"!

Important things to know:
RSVP Etiquiette: We employ a "Three Strikes and You Are Out" Rule with respect to RSVPs. If a member RSVPs "Yes" to an event but does not show up, you get a strike. If you need to cancel, simply change your RSVP to No 24 hours in advance. No show or cancelling last minute is bad form and socially not acceptable. After three strikes, a member is removed from the group without notice!
Respect: Notwithstanding the application of what may seem like rather strict guidelines, these rules are meant to facilitate positive and memorable experiences for our members. We value honesty, dependability, and camaraderie! Therefore zero tolerance for rude, mean spirited, disrespectful behaviour or making others feel uncomfortable either in person or by email will not be tolerated and removed without notice.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
