What we're about
EvolvingConnections is a group of people mostly age 50+, but we won't kick you out if you're not quite 50. We're from a variety of backgrounds, but the main thing that defines is us that we are still as active, energetic and engaged in our own lives and communities as we have been in the past (or sometimes even more so). Most of us would identify as Baby Boomers.
We're either still working full- or part-time, or want to be. In fact, we reject the traditional idea of retirement, and intend to be vitally engaged in serious or focused pursuits as long as we are able. You'll meet others who are committed to staying as healthy and active as possible, well into our later years.
Assertively bucking the culturally imposed expectations of what it means to be 50+ is a major characteristic of Evolving Connectors. We can acknowledge our age matter-of-factly without acting the way that others think people of our age "should" act.
We seek intellectual stimulation, outdoor and active pursuits, fun and relaxing events, perhaps an occasional challenge that pushes the envelope for those able and interested--zip line, anyone? Along the way, we build an additional community of friends, and eat healthful food (most of the time) instead of greasy bar fare.
We're committed to advancing equity in society--economic, social and every other way.
