What we're about

"Friendship is born at that moment when one person says to another:
What! You too? I thought I was the only one." — C.S. LEWIS

We like to eat and talk and drink coffee and talk ... You get the idea! Open to women and men. Singles and couples. Group is mostly Boomers and people who appreciate their company age 35+ from BOTH East AND West of the River. Events to include dining event groups several times a month, coffee and conversation, occasional films, game nights and other local events. Meetup locations will range from Enfield to the Manchester/Vernon and Mansfield/Coventry areas to encourage attendance. Venues will range from coffee and light snacks to fine dining. If you have any ideas please let us know. As of 4/1/19 we will begin charging $12 per year for membership dues. These will go toward the monthly fee from Meetup for using their website. Co-managers are exempt from this. Thank you for your cooperation.

While we don’t want anyone to feel “pressured” to participate once they are at an event, please understand that because we are attempting to keep our gatherings small your RSVP response is very important. If you change your mind about an event please cancel your RSVP at least 24 hours prior to the event. No shows will be tracked. **UPDATE 8/15/18 - due to the frequency of no shows and last minute cancellations we are going to be removing people from the mailing list who cancel and/or no show 2 or more times. If it happens again you will be completely removed from the group. Sorry but if the Admins have to be there based on your attendance response then you should have the courtesy to let them know your plans in advance.**

Organizers reserve the right to cancel and/or change events and locations. Every attempt will be made to give at least 12 hours notice by group email. Please check the event description the day of your event for any changes.

Thank you for helping to make us a successful Meetup!
