A group for women over 50 whether single or married who want to make great friendships and enjoy fun events together . Our goal is a fun, relaxed, and low key way to do activities with other women in the similar age and time in life. You may still be working or retired. You may have children who are about to leave the nest or no kids but the four legged types. We want this to be a relaxed, low key and fun group to make friends and do activities together. It may be anything from wine tasting, to hiking, to picnics to bunco to bicycling to listening to music. This group is for you and we are very open to hearing what you want from this group. Also, we welcome your input on activities you would like to see planned. Besides fun social events, we will host regular business meetings or conduct surveys to hear more of your ideas and input. Stay tuned. If you are interested in sponsoring your own event, we can help you make that happen! This is our group for ALL of us!
We had a membership fee of $15.00 annually that we started in 2020. The $15.00 was to be used to help us pay for the administrative fees that meetup.com charges us to maintain our site and for some fun events! We plan on holding a summer BBQ and a Holiday party that we will be able to sponsor with these contributions! Due to COVID, these events never occurred in 2020 so we are stopping any more payments for new members as of the end of October and into 2021. We will use the funds we are holding for some larger group events in 2021 - assuming it returns to a pre-COVID environment.
We do have a couple of basic rules to help us learn more about our members and to help us manage events when the host is planning the event. We do require you to have a recent picture of yourself (no group shots, pets, or scenic views) and a small bio in order to join our group. So please take a few minutes to complete the information.
Since we are growing by leaps and bounds we have found it necessary to implement a no-show policy. The policy is as follows -
If a member has 3 no-shows within a quarter, the member will automatically be placed at the bottom of the wait-list for every club event for the next 3 months. If a member changes their RSVP to ‘no’ within 24 hours of the event, they will still be considered a ‘no-show’.
We know that there are times when this cannot be avoided (sick, work etc.) so that is why we have made it 3 no-shows within a quarter. People that are on the wait-list and automatically move up as ‘going’ within 24 hours of an event will not be considered no-shows if they find they cannot attend the event at that late notice.
