What we're about

This is a group for men in transition to the next stage of life to socialize, have some laughs, discuss a range of topics and support each other in staying fit, happy and engaged.

Unfortunately, I dithered about taking this over until the old group disappeared. So we lost the mailing list in the process. I've sent out invitations to the few email addresses I had. I hope others may rediscover it. My interest and involvement in this group is partly in recognition of the difficulty many men in our stage of life have in making new friends and finding new communities of interest.

I have instituted a couple of small changes. I intend to authorize all core members as event managers, which means any of you can initiate an event on the calendar. That's partly because I am not by nature an organizer or group leader. It's also because I want to encourage anyone with a great idea for a meetup to put it on the calendar.

The other small change is just my own private joke. I changed the name from Baby Boomer Men's Healthy Living Meetup 55-70 to Baby Boomer Healthy Living Men's Meetup 55-70. That comes from snarky post I got from a friend on Facebook: "What qualifies as healthy living... or is it healthy, living men 50-75?" So I figure "living men" is the only major qualification for membership.

Looking forward to some nice get togethers!

Sincerely,

Peter Jon Shuler

PS: Most of the members live in Palo Alto or nearby Peninsula cities. So by necessity most of the Meetups are planned for that general vicinity. But I don't think most guys would be adverse to attending a Meetup farther afield from time to time.
