Currently we’re bursting at the seams. Thus new members will not be added until close to the first of the year. We are a Meetup designed for those who are looking to expand their circle of friends. This is an inclusive group of people over 60 who want to develop a network of friends for day and evening activities through shared experiences. Hopefully most members will post or suggest activities and lead events all over Portland.
Due to space at member homes, restaurants... our group size must be limited. Otherwise our events fill up too quickly. We close the group to new members when full.
We are not a 'singles' group though most members are single. If you are part of a couple and wish to join, simply sign up. However, bringing a '+1' to an event will not be allowed. Thus every person who attends our gatherings will be a member. This is important as many events take place in private spaces and we all want to know who is coming to our home.
Please join the waitlist for any event you would like to attend. It is a rare occasion that all on the waitlist are not moved up to the group. In fact, if the waitlist is long enough another event (e.g. restaurant) is added. Also the host may use the previous waitlist for their next event thus holding a spot for you. However, do not RSVP if you are not sure your calendar is free.
Posting a picture of your face on your profile is mandatory. It lets organizers watch for you at an event and helps other members to learn your name more quickly.
While we are all over 60 this is an active group. There will be events which require walking, stairs, standing to chat... Please read description of events carefully.
Dues are $15 yearly paid by the end of January. ($10 after first year). Please attend an event or two and if this is the group for you be sure to pay. Dues are most often used for room fees at restaurants or extra tips for large groups. Extra dues after fees, tips and meetup fees are divided among the members who host large parties. All monies will be spent on this group.
Dues will be paid by cash only. Simply give $15 in an envelope with your name to the Organizer of your next event.
Organizers are needed to keep events posted every week. If you have an idea for an event please contact us or volunteer to add events yourself. We are in need of organizers in NW, SW and N Portland areas. Most of our events are in the inner NE and inner SE because this is where our most active organizers reside.
