This group is for women "50ish and up" who are interested in meeting other women for sincere friendships and the chance to explore Wilmington sites, events, restaurants, exhibits etc. All ideas and help welcomed and encouraged. When I attended a meet up group where only five of 12 RSVP's showed up, we ended up discussing how much there is to do but how often we don't want to do it alone. We don't want cliques. We want decent nice women who value female friendships for fun and adventures. Please join us and contact me with any of your ideas. When you see "informational" events, they are not formal ones; they are posted merely for members to know about. If the event interests you, rsvp, and feel free to message others who have rsvp'ed and arrange a spot to meet, exchanging phone numbers help too so you can find one another at the event.
After almost a year of forming lifetime friendships with this group, it has become a major source of fun, entertainment, sharing, and support. It is not just a meet up group anymore; it's a social club with a variety of activities and events that mean a great deal to each women involved. The monthly dues are not only because it is so much more than a casual get together; it's what every woman wishes she had; wonderful girlfriends who are there for one another with a great deal of laughter as well. We have trips to Charleston and Costa Rica planned, day trip outings, and so much more. The women who are a part of this group get how much connecting with other women mean in life and appreciate the strength and depth of this group. If you're looking for meaningful friendships and a fulfilling social life as well, try us.
"A seasoned woman is spicy," writes Gail Sheehy, the over-50-and-proud author of Passages and founder of the Seasoned Women's Network online. "She has been marinated in life experience. She is at the peak of her influence and power. She is committed to living fully and passionately in the second half of life, despite failures and false starts."
