What we're about
This group was created to identify social activities for Central New Hampshire residents (including the Concord, NH and Laconia / Plymouth, NH areas) to come together, relax and socialize through various meetup events. Suggested social meetups can take place anywhere in the Central New Hampshire region (mostly in the Concord, NH area and Plymouth/Laconia, NH area). This group is for people who like music, food, movies, playing pool, checking out museums and plays, doing walks, Trivia nights, bowling, kayaking and any other social activity the group is interested in. The ideas for this group's meetups will come from its members as well as myself. Send me ideas or just post them in the comments and let the socializing commence ! (There is no membership fee) This group is open to couples AND also singles (including separated people) over the age of 21. You must live in NH and be a year round resident.
This is not a singles group! If you join to contact members to get dates, you will be disappointed and possibly removed from the group if it causes a problem or there is a complaint.
Because of an incident which occurred that involved the safety of a woman attending one of our events, we now perform background checks of applicants to try to protect members from harmful elements of society. The background check findings are not made public and is not available on the website and is not available to other members. We are the only group in NH that does this to my knowledge. The idea is to decrease the risk of meeting stalkers, abusers, drug users, etc. at a meetup event. In addition, most of the other Meetup groups allow non-members to view member profile information.......we do not allow it. We cannot guarantee complete safety, but we do more than other groups do to reduce risk. You can delete the information you provide when you join by going to your profile on our site and deleting the information (edit function).
We are very diverse in our views and expect members to be respectful and kind to each other. You will get out of it what you are willing to put into it. So, if you are a fun person and have a sense of humor, come join us and have some laughs.
Facial photos need to be posted since we are a new group and we need to be able to recognize members when arriving at events, as well as, some events will be held at homes. A photo showing your entire face is required or your membership will not be approved.
