What we're about

East Bay Seniors is a group for those of us who are 55 “plus or minus” and looking to meet new friends!

Many of us are single - widowed, divorced, or otherwise - and wanted to take the awkwardness out of going somewhere alone to meet people, and see the area. We're not a dating site, we just want a way to socialize, explore all the East Bay, RI and southern MA areas have to offer, and have fun visiting different venues not far from home. Halves of couples or couples coming together are welcome as well, as some of us are. We just want to create an inclusive environment where all feel they can join in. Anyone from anywhere is welcome!

Book clubs, train rides, music, outdoor activities, theater, walks, beaches, local museums/tours, movies, board games, brunches, meet-and-greets, etc. Variety is our vision, and we meet up in groups of 3 or more, so no one goes alone with just one other.

Please join, and spread the word! You are more than welcome!! Rather than asking for donations per event, to help defray organizer costs, we are inviting you to pay a yearly due of $12 ($1 per month). Thanks for considering us, and for being part of our group! For new members, you will also have a 60 day free trial before dues are required. Give it a shot! 😊

Because It's Wednesday

Dunkin' Donuts

No activity, no plans, just a chance to socialize this Wednesday! Sometimes you don't need a good reason. Just come meet me at Dunkin in the plaza off Gooding Ave. Plenty of parking. You can buy a drink/snack or not! We will sit together and meet with one another and talk and enjoy the company. Hope to see you there! :)

Murder Mystery Party

Market Street Pub

In this game that plays like a movie, we are all the devious suspects in a murder mystery! A body was discovered at a California vineyard, and we must solve the murder before the killer strikes again. When we arrive, we can assign ourselves roles from the 6-8 characters provided. You will have a character booklet with all you need to play. A script, background info, and easy-to-follow rules to play the game (much like Clue). Note this is very simple! A CD will guide us through the steps and basically the game is out of our hands, it's just our job to have fun and bring the story to life, and try to crack the mystery before the culprit reveals his or herself. All you need to bring is your sense of humor! And maybe a little cash if you would like a drink or bar fare from Market St. Pub. --- For more information and to read the good reviews, check out the listing for the game below: https://www.amazon.com/Murder-Mystery-Party-Games-Taste/dp/B00000J00M/

Canasta for Beginners! MARDI GRAS TWIST

Rogers Free Library

Canasta is a lot of fun!! Entire groups and clubs are built around this fan-favorite card game. We will play with a Mardi Gras twist -- winners get beads!! It is easy and quick to learn and play. We will go over the rules before play and help one another out along the way, so don't worry if you've never even heard of it before! Let's have some non-competitive fun. If you own a Canasta game, please bring it along since I only have one game. This meet up will be held in the meeting room on the lower level of the Library across the hell from the Children's room. There is a parking lot in the rear of the building. Please bring your own snacks and beverage. Hope to see you there!
