Hi Ladies. We are a women's social group made up of friendly, upbeat, active women. Our members are women, RETIRED or PART-TIME workers with flexible schedules. We Meetup mostly during the week, during the day. Covid has curtailed the frequency and different types of events we are used to doing. During the warmer months, early evening and Weekend events MAY BE planned, NOT GUARANTEED. We welcome genuine, easy going, smiling Gal Pals.
We schedule..... Lunches, Breakfasts, Tours and Museums when available, Outdoor Potluck Parties at my Place, Game Days, Local Theaters, Musicals and Plays, Day Trips to the Shore, DIY Classes, Festivals, Flea Markets, Fairs and Craft Shows, Teas, Movie Day at my Place and More!
Do not automatically RSVP as soon as an event is posted when there is a limited number of spots unless you are 100% sure you will be attending. If you don't show up ,OR cancel a lot at the last moment, let's just say it won't be looked upon favorably. Do not wait until the last minute to cancel. Please.
Always bring CASH to all restaurants, not credit/debit card. Not all restaurants will do separate checks and so this is how we make it easier to pay the bill.
Please make sure to have a pic posted in your main profile.
There is a small fee for this group which will need to be paid right away after your trial period. The annual commitment fee is what helps keep the group registered on Meetup.com and also helps to encourage more engaged/active members.
****PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING PARAGRAPHS VERY CAREFULLY****
All members must come out to an event within 60 days of joining Gal Pals. After more than 60 days of inactivity, and or non communication activity, any member (old or new) may be removed. PLEASE DO NOT PAY THE MEMBERSHIP FEE UNTIL YOU HAVE ATTENDED 2 MEETUPS. I will refund your payment if you pay dues before you have attended 2 Meetups. Remember that you can host an event if you don't see anything listed that you can or want to attend after you have attended 2 meetups. Members who are a "no-show" 3 times will be removed (a "No Show" is RSVPing "Yes" for an event, and then not showing up without changing the RSVP to "No")
If you are participating in Gossip or found to be a source of gossip which undermines the mission of the group, you will be identified as not being a good fit and will not be allowed to continue as a member of Gal Pals of South Jersey. Zero tolerance.
Always bring CASH to all restaurants, not credit/debit cards for payment.
We always respect and care about each other and we welcome and appreciate ideas from other Gal Pals.
Our members are between 55 ish - 70 ish years, HOWEVER, AGE IS TRULY A STATE OF MIND. YOU SHOULD BE RETIRED OR A PART TIME/FLEXIBLE WORKER WITH FREE TIME DURING THE DAY, DURING THE WEEK TO ENJOY BEING PART OF GAL PALS.
