Do you miss the friendships that seemed so easy to form in your teens and twenties? Has building a career, relocating or raising kids made life more isolating or put close friendships on the back burner? Women in their 50's and beyond are in a unique phase of life, and it's a great time to re-focus on our sisterly connections. This is a group for women aged 50+ looking to build deeper friendships as we explore the many interesting and fun opportunities our area has to offer.
This is an Eastside-based group, so most of our events will take place in the Redmond/Kirkland/Bellevue/Woodinville area. Unlike many Meetup groups, this is also a cooperative group, and all members are expected to take turns with planning and hosting events. If you're not in a position to contribute, please don't join. We'll aim for one or two events a month with an emphasis on smaller-group (8 to 15 women) settings that let us get to know each other.
Dues are $10 per year, all of which go toward the cost of hosting the group on Meetup, payable after your first event.
Before requesting membership, please make sure you have a profile picture that is a "headshot" style -- just you in the frame (sorry, no pets, other people, sunglasses or hats), showing a close-up, full view of your face. We can't approve you otherwise. It's important for us all to know who's who and be able to recognize each other at events.
