Hi There... On my own, kids are grown and gone now I have time for me. My goals: meet new people, get involved in volunteer work(anyone need help?), travel and more.
Are you single, divorced or widowed/widower (i.e. NOT married and NOT separated, etc). While this is not a singles group per se, nor a dating group, we are a group of unmarried people aged forties plus.
Have you already included a VERY recent close up photo of you (no one else in it)? A close up photo from within the last 6 to 12 months or less, no sunglasses please. If not please do so now & resubmit your request. I could take one for you to use.

Only about 1 in 4 of our members live anywhere near Lake Minnetonka, or even west of Hwy 494. Tell us a little bit about your Lake Minnetonka experiences, past or present.
Started in August, 2011 we decided to form a group for 40s plus aged single people who either already live on and near Lake Minnetonka, and/or single people who play here. We will usually meet somewhere on or near Lake Minnetonka. Sometimes our parties and events will be held elsewhere but we will try to stay close to the Lake and nearby communities whenever possible.
Below is a partial list of activities and events. Some of our Meetups are likely to be happy hour events and similar things where we can gather to meet and plan other events. We welcome ideas and suggestions from our members for Meetups.
As is the case elsewhere on Meetup we are trying to connect people and to provide a variety of FUN activities, outings, events, etc towards that purpose. Any member can organize events and/or help with the scheduled events.
Make new friends / Meet new people
Bicycling / Biking
Boating / Canoeing / Kayaking
Walking and hiking
Potlucks and BBQ Themed Parties
Music, Dancing and nightclubs
Volunteering (e.g. Feed My Starving Children, etc)
Most of our members are also members of other meetup Groups. I hope you will explore them as well.
There are a few other groups near Lake Minnetonka. One in particular is Lake Minnetonka Singles. However it's description appears to be geared towards 20s to 40s. The organizer there has literally kicked out of 'his' group dozens of people who he calls, in his words', "...not a good fit..." Imagine that! We have over 30 people in our group that the organizer there kicked has out of his group calling them "not a good fit" or because these folks did not attend enough events to suit him. So I/we have started our own Meetup group and here YOU are a good fit.
in this group we will usually provide name tags when you arrive at the event and we encourage people to use them. You may belong here and come as frequently or seldom as you can. And you are also welcome to help plan and organize events that you would like to attend.
