Membership fees - No membership fees at this time.

Removal from group - As the Organizer, it is my sole discretion to remove a member from the group. If I don't feel the member is a "fit", if a member doesn't get along with others, if a member causes undo hostility, if more than one complaint has been voiced about a specific member, just to name a few.

As you can see from our wide variety of past meetups - we have events and adventures for everyone. Favorite places to visit for daytrips and weekend trips, favorite local restaurants-both new and old, group dinners and more intimate dinners, dancing, sporting events, mystery theatres, boat trips, wine tastings, museums, historical sites, movies, theatre, cabarets, musical events (from new age to classical), visits to parks, hiking, skating, go carting, zip lining, paint ball, and the list keeps going. Many more activities to be had in the warmer months.

Check out past events & adventures to wet your appetite and show you what a wonderful group this is. Read the reviews and comments and don't forget to check the photo's from previous events.

RSVPs go fast within this group. **During this Covid pandemic we have limited events/outings scheduled but once we are free of this Pandemic, we will resume several events each month.

Members should be 50 years of age up to 65, but those numbers aren't set in stone, had to start and end somewhere. You must be an individual that cares about their appearance, has a zest for life, has an ACTIVE and healthy lifestyle and the means to join us for some of our events. Those that enjoy getting together with and being respectful of others. Inappropriate behavior will not be tolerated in anyway. Inappropriate comments and/or other harassment of any member will be grounds for removal from our group.

At times you will be asked to participate in bringing a dish or your beverage of choice. Posts will always give plenty of info and/or suggestions as to the nature of our event and what is needed.

Please share your questions or comments. If anyone has an idea, please share with me and I’ll post and put it out there to see if there’s any interest.

Let your friends know about Dynamic Professionals 50 +, we hope to make this a very popular meet up with a new concept and twists on old concepts. Thanks for your interest!

Fiction Addiction ~ Book Club - 1st Tuesday each month ON ZOOM

Our group is co-ed and has been meeting for over 5 years. We enjoy chatting with each other, eating good food and discussing interesting books. Every meeting is fun! Newcomers are always welcome! Please RSVP on our Meetup website. MEETING LOCATION on Zoom.us until further notice. Watch for updates to confirm! Below are the MEETING/DISCUSSION dates and books on Zoom. *********** August[masked] "Book Women of Troublesome Creek" by Kim M. Richardson, Moderator: Leslie Davis Cussy Mary Cotter is a book woman and the last of her kind. Her skin is a shade of blue unlike most anyone else. Not everyone is keen on Cussy's family or the Library Project, and Blue is often blamed for any whiff of trouble. If Cussy wants to bring the joy of books to the hill folks, she's going to have to confront prejudice as old as the Appalachia’s and suspicion as deep as the holler. NYT and USA Today best seller. September 1, 2020 "Daughter of a Daughter of Queen" by Sarah Bird Moderator: Pat Trautman A compelling, hidden story of Cathy Williams, a former slave and only woman to ever serve with the legendary Buffalo Soldiers. After the Civil War she refused to be a slave again and disguised herself as a man to join the Army. She vows to never give up on finding her mother, little sister and the love of the only man strong and noble enough to win her heart. Inspired by the stunning, true story of Private Williams, an American heroine. October 6, 2020 "The Beekeeper's Promise" by Fiona Valpy Moderator: Debbie Anderegg Heartbroken and hoping for a new start, Abi Howes takes a summer job in rural France at the Château Bellevue. The old château echoes with voices from the past, and soon Abi finds herself drawn to one remarkable woman’s story, a story that could change the course of her summer—and her life. She learns about Eliane who fell in love at the beginning of WWII. November 3, 2020 "The Giver of Stars" by Jojo Moyes Moderator: Barb Frey Depression-era America, a breathtaking true story of five extraordinary women and their remarkable journey through the mountains of Kentucky and beyond. They became the Packhorse Librarians of Kentucky bringing books to people who have never had any, arming them with facts that will change their lives. A funny, heartbreaking, enthralling, and richly rewarding novel about reaching beyond our grasp for the great beyond. December 1, 2020 "The Boy from the Woods" by Harlan Coben Moderator: Laurie Scheiner A shocking new thriller from the #1 New York Times bestselling author: A man whose past is shrouded in mystery must find a missing teenage girl before her disappearance brings about disastrous consequences for her community . . . and the world.
