Laura M.



Raleigh, NC

Organizer since:

July 15, 2014

Tell us a little about your journey thus far.

I am a retired educator who moved from Cleveland to Raleigh in August, 2011. My daughter and then 3 yr old granddaughter moved with me and I assisted them while my daughter got re-established. Now that she is working, I have more time to do other things that interest me and would certainly like to have company doing so. I look forward to exploring not only the RTP area, but the whole of North Carolinal.

Are you an "Active" African American woman at least 55 years of age living in the RDU area? (We are looking for women who are still physically & mentally active and can get around easily).

Yes; I am soon to be 68. Where in the world did the time go??!!

What do you expect to gain as a result of joining "Black & Silver"?

I hope to make some personal connections, create friendships and build a support system of like-minded people.

Can you attend at least one meeting or event every 2 months? (In order to keep your membership active, you must be able to attend one meetup every 2 months. Members not active for a consecutive 6 months are automatically removed from membership.)

Yes; however I still have elderly parents in Ohio and find, at times, that I must return there unexpectantly.

Dues are $30 a year. Dues are used for paying our monthly fees to Dues are non-refundable & must be received 1 week after acceptance or you are automatically removed. Are you willing to pay yearly dues?



Hello. Well, it seems like everyone else, I relocated to this area...Ohio for me. I am retired so I have had a difficult time meeting other women in my age group. It is a delight to find this group and I look forward to meeting everyone.

What Laura M. is saying about this Meetup Group

I look forward to interacting with members each time there is an activity. I am amazed at how much we all have in common and how well we mesh. I am delighted to be a part of such grounded and accomplished women." I wrote this in 2012. It's 2016 and I STILL feel the same way. What a wonderful part of my life!!!
