Help support your MeetupChip in
http://photos4.meetupstatic.com/photos/even... I make NO excuses for the title of this group. Meetup.com itsself was created AT GROUND ZERO in NYC and BECAUSE of GROUND ZERO. If you have questions about the heart of the group, go to MEETUP.COM and see why indeed, they STARTED MEETUP.COM. It is now a worldwide meetup phenomenon because of the World Trade Center disaster on 9-11.
Sometimes blessings come from tears. Sometimes hope springs out of disasters.. We ALL need to reconnect with our fellow man. Love God first, but second only to that is to LOVE ONE ANOTHER.
So let's get out of the house. That friend you've been texting on that internet website is not going to magically materialize.
One way to reach out is to go to "meetups" (meetings where people get together) to mingle and discuss common goals and experiences and MEET ONE ANOTHER! In the FLESH! Face to Face!!! In mutually pleasing atmospheres like a nice tavern (no bars) or an upscale restaurant or a kind neighbor's home?
That's what Ground Zero Friends is all about. Meeting like minded genuine men and women with kind hearts and down-home ways. We have had a lot of success because the heart of our group is strong and good. We used to be a singles group but we found that many married couples or just individuals who were married but still needed a friend were left out. So we changed it to unmarried/married/who cares group. We are not in it for the money. If you do not want to use the Chip In option you may contribute directly to one of our Co-Organizers: David Caldwell, Maureen McHenry or Deborah Mendelsson in cash and they will make sure your donation finds its way to Connie Seniuk, our Treasurer. Connie will make sure we get our administrative costs to Meetup.com get paid Bi-Annually and she will keep a good record on all outgoing and incoming monies. Thanks Connie!!!
We no longer collect dues because we feel it takes away from the heart of the group and we delight in our members and do not care about the maintenance fees we pay to keep the groups. We DO collect donations and have been able to maintain our group's administrative costs through purely voluntary donations through the "Chip In" link on the Home Page, but it is completely voluntary and if our needs are not met, we have FAITH that members' generosity will provide it in time.
We do it because we get great joy in seeing people of good faith and character find common bonds. We want to create lasting friendships and we have been very successful at that!
So join us and let's see how we can make communications between people much more stress free and much more enjoyable! Join us! Have fun with us! The more meetups you attend, the more you WILL become family! It's called spending time with family! So okay, SIGN UP and SHOW UP!!! That's where it starts!
Love, Patricia (Just Lil' Ole Me) I LOVE YOU ALL!!!
WE ARE FAMILY!!
