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 45+ 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!

Theatre (indoor and outdoor),
Breakfast, lunch and dinner get togethers,

Important things to know:
RSVP Etiquiette: We employ a "Two 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 is socially not acceptable. After two 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.
Inactive: The organizer has the right to remove any members who have not participated in any event in a year or more without notice.
