What we're about

Are you tired of not seeing many social gatherings for those over the age of 40 and you still enjoy human contact? Well, here we are, almost 1,700 active folks to meet and be social with...

We only have a few rules:

(1) A photo is required. Attach a reasonably current close-up of your face (w/o sunglasses, other people, pets or other obstructions).

(2) Create your profile name. Your profile name needs to be your real name (what your family and friends call you) and at a minimum, middle or last name initial. Example: Say your name is "Jane Roberts". Use "Jane R" as your profile name. This helps separate you from all the other "Janes'" in our group. We encourage you to consider not using your complete name (but you can, your decision) as that might help the wrong kind of people outside of this group find you on the internet.

(3) Group members learn who you are by connecting your photo and your name (anonymity doesn't work in our social group). https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/3... (https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002878591-How-do-I-change-my-profile-photo)-

(2) This is not a dating site. Annoying our members, trolling for dates, or anything sales oriented is not allowed.

(3) Alabama residents only.

(4) Members may not bring a person who was Removed or Banned from this group.

(5) We must be able to contact you, these settings must be on...
