Help support your MeetupChip in
There are singles groups but none for active, interesting seniors age 65-80 who don't dwell on health issues. My particular interests center on music, concerts, shows, museums and making new friends. We could share incidents from our years of experiences. I live in Camarillo, but love to drive, so many of our venues will be centralized in the San Fernando Valley & Thousand Oaks. We welcome Seniors from Camarillo & Ventura County & points North, South, West & East of these & we will plan venues in those areas as well.
IF YOU WANT TO HAVE FUN & GOOD TIMES, MENTALLY ASTUTE & MOBILE, WE'RE THE MEETUP GROUP FOR YOU! We initially started this group in July 2012 with 12 members. We are in our FOURTH YEAR with over 160 members. However, we have not met many of you. Please DO NOT join if you have no intention of participating. We have great times & go to wonderful shows, concerts, restaurants & various venues. Many of us have made some fantastic friends. We are a warm, welcoming group & look forward to meeting you!!!
PLEASE NOTE: WE ARE A FUN GROUP. WE WANT ALL CONVERSATIONS TO BE LIGHT...NO DEEP PHILOSOPHICAL, IDEOLOGICAL OR POLITICAL DISCUSSIONS. THERE ARE OTHER GROUPS YOU CAN JOIN FOR DEEPER CONVERSATIONS ON VARIOUS ISSUES...THIS IS NOT ONE OF THEM. WE WANT TO LAUGH, TALK & HAVE A GOOD TIME. REFRAIN FROM DWELLING ON HEALTH ISSUES...WE ARE ALL OLDER & WE ALL HAVE HEALTH PROBLEMS OF SOME DEGREE, BUT PLEASE TRY NOT TO DISCUSS HEALTH ISSUES AS A GROUP. THAT CAN BE DEPRESSING & BORING. LET'S JUST HAVE A GOOD TIME & MAKE FRIENDS....THAT'S WHAT WE'RE ALL ABOUT!!
I SCHEDULE 2-4 EVENTS EVERY MONTH SO YOU CAN PICK & CHOOSE ALL OR WHICH EVER ONES INTEREST YOU. MOST MEETUP GROUPS ONLY SCHEDULE 1 EVENT A MONTH. WE'RE DIFFERENT!! WE WANT TO DO "STUFF" & ENJOY OUR LIVES. WHY WAIT FOR TOMORROW? LIFE IS TOO SHORT. LET'S HAVE FUN WHILE WE CAN...SO TRY TO ATTEND AS MANY EVENTS AS POSSIBLE. I TRY TO LOOK FOR FREE EVENTS OR LOW COST ONES, WHENEVER POSSIBLE, AS I KEEP IN MIND THAT MANY OF US ARE ON FIXED INCOMES. I TRY TO VARY THE LOCATIONS OF THE EVENTS & WE ATTEMPT TO ARRANGE CARPOOLING. PLEASE NOTE: WE DO NOT HAVE A MANDATORY MEETUP FEE. HOWEVER, WE DO REQUEST THAT ALL MEMBERS CONTRIBUTE $20.00 PER YEAR TO OFFSET THE MEETUP HEADQUARTERS, N.Y.C. FEE OF $15.00 PER MONTH + GOLDSTAR's RED VELVET FEE OF $50.00 PER YEAR THAT I HAVE BEEN PAYING OUT OF MY POCKET. I ALSO HAVE BEEN BUYING COMPUTER PRINT SUPPLIES SUCH AS 10 REAMS OF PAPER EVERY 3-4 MONTHS ALONG WITH A CARTRIDGE REPLACE-MENT 3 TIMES A YEAR. THERE ARE VARIOUS OTHER MONIES THAT I PAY FOR PERSONALLY WITH NO REMUNERATION & IT HAS GOTTEN TO BE A FINANCIAL BURDEN FOR ME. I WOULD BE GRATEFUL FOR ALL MEMBERS TO CHIP IN TO OFFSET THESE EXPENSES. NEW MEMBERS CAN GIVE ME THEIR $20.00 PRIOR TO GOING ON THEIR FIRST EVENT WITH US & EXISTING MEMBERS CAN GIVE ME THEIR CONTRIBUTION AT THE NEXT EVENT THEY ATTEND. I KEEP ACCURATE RECORDS OF THESE MONIES & ANY MONIES LEFT OVER AT THE END OF THE YEAR WILL GO TOWARD AN ANNUAL PARTY THAT I WILL MAKE. CHECKS ARE PREFERABLE TO CASH, WHEN POSSIBLE. WHEN YOU JOIN, PLEASE BE SURE TO INCLUDE YOUR HOME E-MAIL & CELL #. YOU CAN SEND THIS INFO TO MY HOME E-MAIL: email@example.com Also include your last name if you haven't listed it initially. This is to be able to reach you for last minute changes to events. LOOKING FORWARD TO MEETING YOU & SHARING GOOD TIMES!
JOIN US !!!! Let's LAUGH, HAVE FUN & MAKE NEW FRIENDS!
