This group is designed for all women age 55 and up. Our theme is creating a more positive outlook and happiness in our lives! We are a group of genuine, welcoming women who are growth oriented and forever young in mind and spirit! We offer movie night, monthly book club, festivals, happy hour, walking, concerts, self improvement, plays, movies, Euchre, game night, dining out and more. We are always open for new ideas. We are a friendship group with NO business networking.
Please read ALL of the Guidelines below, as they help us determine membership.
If you would like to join our group.... YOU MUST post a current photo of only yourself. Your garden is beautiful, your grandchildren and pets are adorable but we need a picture of you. It's important for us to have this so we can identify and recognize you at an event. We will not approve you without a current photo.
ATTENDANCE - New members are expected to attend an event within 60 days of joining the group.
RSVP'S - We understand there are circumstances where you may need to cancel. When this happens, you must change your RSVP to NO. If it is less than 24 hours before the event, you must notify the event organizer by message or text. (Pam L. does not have email or app on her phone so call or text her directly.) They will be looking for you. If you are asked to provide your phone number, please do. We do not share your information with anyone. This is solely for the purposes of ensuring your safe arrival and not making the whole group wait on you if you don't show up.
WAITLISTS - We sometimes have to limit the number of attendees to an event, which may result in a waitlist. If you are on a waitlist, please make sure your notification settings allow you to receive emails/updates, so that you will know if you have been moved up to attend. Some of our hosts require you to provide your cell number when you RSVP-yes. If you don't have the host's cell # then they do not have yours, so be sure to provide it in the RSVP function, to avoid being waitlisted.
NO-SHOWS - Members who no-show to 3 events may be removed from the group. If you are a repeat offender we reserve the right to remove you from a future event, to make room for those interested in attending.
Many events are hosted by members at their home. It is rude to RSVP Yes and then cancel at the last minute. Keep in mind all the work you do to make your home inviting for others. If you are canceling at the last minute your host deserves an explanation. Simply changing your RSVP to No is unacceptable.
And last but not least.....NO DRAMA.....save your drama for your mama....members who cause drama will be banned from the group. There is a zero tolerance for this. It's wonderful that many close friendships have been formed within the group. However, we will not tolerate cliques at events. If an event it set up for the entire group, then the event is inclusive for everyone. We want all members to feel welcome.
We hope to get to know all of you this year and to create lasting friendships that will help all of us navigate the crazy terrain we call life!
