Remember how much fun we had hanging out with our girlfriends when we were kids? Then we grew up, got jobs, got married, became parents & grand parents and lost touch with our girlfriends. Well now it's time to have some of that girlfriend fun again. This group is about developing lasting friendships. Our goal is to stay a small group of close friends.
Most of us are our 55 - 60's but if you're close & would like to join us you're more than welcome. Just be aware that this group is not into the bar scene. It's not about meeting men. It's about good old-fashion girlfriends hanging out, laughing, going places together, having fun, and just simply enjoying life like we did when we were kids.
This is an incredibly friendly & welcoming group. You're sure to feel comfortable right from the start. So if just sitting around getting old is not for you, then leave the stress behind and join us. You'll be glad you did.

Is this the group for you?
This group is about develop lasting friendships. Our events are just something fun for friends to enjoy together. If you're just looking for something to do once in a while this probably is not the group for you.
We are a Bloomingdale/Roselle group. If you don't live in the area or are not interested in traveling to this area regularly this may not be the best group for you.
If you sign up for an event, please show up. If something should come up, respectfully change your RSVP. Don't just stand us up.
If you like spending time with your friends & are interested in being part of a group that loves enjoying life to the fullest then this is it.
