Coffee. Tea and Conversation

Come and join us for a relaxed time of meeting new friends and enjoying your favorite morning beverage.

This will be our first meeting, so we will spend time with introducing ourselves, and getting to know each other.

I looking forward to meeting you...  Let's make this a place where everybody knows your name, and their always glad you came!

:-)  Rick

PS.  Please come 10-15 minutes early (if you can) and purchase a beverage or snack to support Strange Grounds, to thank them for the use of their meeting room.

    I thought today's meet-up was enjoyable and thought provoking. Everyone made logical and interesting comments and no one dominated the conversation, as Rick had asked. I look forward to the next one. - Jim

      Good point. I quit trying to reach them, they won't change me and I won't change them. It is frustrating though when they don't "see" environmental issue's which will affect their families years down the road or the unwanted children on welfare etc. I like how Karen's father says that they have not yet evolved....monkey brains!

    I liked everyone at the table. I'm not a boomer and they let me stay. :) lol Seriously, I met at least 5 people I wanted to stay connected with. Everyone had unique perspectives, everyone gave each other time to talk despite being a group of about 20. So glad to see Rick's first meetup was successful. Keep 'em coming!

    This IS exciting! Can't wait to meet everyone! ;)

    I really look forward to meeting the group. The fact that we all identify ourselves as liberals and as boomers is so encouraging. I'm so tired of the BS coming from the right-wing, conservative elements, both locally and nationally. There are so many progressive issues we could talk about that we would probably all agree on. I realize it's initially more important to get to know each other rather than talk about enlightened liberal issues, but at least, we'll be in good company. - Jim

    This is NOT how I meet people (too shy) but I like being around smart, progressive people; so there is the conundrum. :)

      Bob, guaranteed I was worse than you, back in Jersey. Of ALL of the groups, I think this is gonna be the one you have to fear that the least...

      Come on out Bob, we won't bite. :)

    Work that day hopefully can make at another time,

    We will be following a somewhat structured approach to discussion, where we will go around the room, and everyone will be given the opportunity to share a little about themselves, and what it means (to them) to be a liberal.

    This approach is used in some other Meetups that I am involved with and seems to work quite well.

    I hope this works for me but the distance me keep me from meeting y'all liberal boomers. I'll stay tuned for locations.
