**** Sorry Ladies-Thanks for your interest in the group. Because our goal is to have fun and long-lasting friendships, we maintain a limited membership. Currently we are not accepting any new members. We'll put you in wait-list. As soon as we have a slot available (someone leaves the grp ), we'll notify you. Preference will be given to someone living closer to Aurora/Naperville area (within 20 miles radius).
****Most of our meetups are on Saturdays during lunch time, so you must be available on Saturdays. If you work on Saturday/s, pls don't join this group.
This is a group for women over 50 (married/single) but if you're not 50 yet & would like to join, 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-fashioned girlfriends hanging out, laughing, going places together, enjoying life and having fun.
We’re a West Suburban based group. We normally do things around Naperville/Aurora/Lombard/Oak Brook areas. If you live far from these areas (over 20 miles), pls don't send a request to be included in the group because it will be hard for you to participate in all of our activities. Since I have a full-time job, most of the activities will be on Saturday afternoon (brunch/lunch). We do go out for dinner on Fridays during summer-but not every month If you are not available for Saturday Lunch and Friday dinner (we do lunch on Saturdays or Dinner on Fridays), you might not be the best fit for this group.
NOTE- I pay meetup organization $60 dollars (the exact amount is $59.94) every six months ($120 dollars per year). - So I collect $5 dollars membership fees. Pls note that you don't have to pay anything on your first meetup. We would like you to try the first meetup and make sure that you like the group before paying the membership, so you pay the membership on your second meetup. Also note that if you belong to more than one meetup groups organized by me (I also organize a walking grp), you don't have to pay any additional fee. At the end of the year, members with almost perfect attendance (at least 75% attendance) will be entered into a drawing to win a part of the leftover money.
We would love to have you in the grp but lot of members just join the grp without ever participating in any meetups. We'd much rather have a small group of dedicated friends, than high numbers with low participation So pls note the following:
**Within 24 hours of joining this grp, you must RSVP (with Yes) to at least one meetup scheduled within 60 days of your joining date , else you'll be removed from the grp .
**You must attend at least one meetup lunch or dinner every 60 days (you could also join other activities, but you meet/see more people when you come to the lunch or dinner) else you'll be removed from the group.
**Since we are very strict about member participation, if you are already a member of more than 7 meetup groups (or if your meetup membership is not public so there is no way for us to know if you are over committed), we’ll sadly decline your request to be a part of this group. No exception.
** Two no-shows-you'll be removed from the grp. So pls change your RSVP if you can't make it to the meetup.
