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.
If you would like to join our group.... YOU MUST post a current photo of 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 you at an event. I'm sorry but we can't approve you without a current photo.
RSVP'S, NO SHOWS AND WAITLIST
We understand there are circumstances where you may need to cancel, but we ask that you try to give at least 24hrs notice. If you do need to cancel it's important to go to the event page attending list and change your RSVP to NO.
A lot of time and energy is put into planning for the group. Setting up some events require a lot of research, phone calls, follow up, confirmations, texts...emails.....you get the picture. It's a lot of work!!! If everyone could just follow the guidelines it would be so helpful. If you have a high rate of canceling (especially at the last minute) and there is a waitlist for an event, we have the right to bump you from the waitlist and give the spot to a more consistent active member of the group or to another new member on the wait list. It's only fair.
Members who are consistently NO SHOWS, may be removed from the group. It's not fair to the organizers, or other active loyal members. If you are a habitual 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 you 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. It's great if make new friends and like to do things together outside of the group, but it is rude to form a clique at a Meet Up and sit separately from the other members.
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!
