We are closed to new members at this time. The response for membership has been overwhelming and we want to trim our membership to about 60 members who are very active, e.g. Getting together a few times each week.
A Meetup designed for those who are looking for activity partners or simply more socialization in their lives. This is an inclusive group of people over 60 who want to develop a network of friends for day and evening activities. Hopefully most members will post or suggest activities and lead events all over Portland.
More about our group:
We are an inclusive group of humans over 60 who enjoy meeting new people, taking part in new experiences and simply getting out to socialize more often.
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.
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. 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 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 $12 to join. Please attend an event or two and if this is the group for you be sure to pay. The assumption is that new members will be joining continually. Thus, this may be a one time fee. If the money runs out members may be asked to pay an annual fee. Members will have access to a spreadsheet of the accounting for this group.
Dues will be paid via PayPal to firstname.lastname@example.org. Or simply give $12 and your name to the Organizer of your next event. Please use the Family and Friends Paypal option which removes all fees. Going through the Meetup wepay system would mean increasing dues to cover the fees and the hassle of automatic renewal of payments.
Please note that your dues will be used to pay the Meetup fees, additional wait staff tips for special venues, charges for party rooms, appetizers... All monies will be spent on this group.
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.
