What we're about
We plan a variety of fun events on LI and beyond - anything from eating to adventure. Do you remember when you were a kid and had friends you could always count on - a friendly face in a crowd of acquaintances? Well, that's what we are about. Genuine friendships with others whom you would love to have to your own house - a group of genuine friends.
Find people whom you are always happy to see - ones who share your interests and who won't cancel at the last minute or be a no show when they have something better to do. The age limits are just a suggestion - if you are a happy, active older person, this is for you too. Please be able to use a computer/android or iphone, and pay by Paypal.
Our events include brunches, book discussions, friendly chat, travel near and far, crafts, adventures, NYC, local theater, gardens, concerts, canasta, keeping fit, even star gazing or anything of interest to you and a few others. Most events take place in Nassau. This group is not suitable for those from mid to eastern Suffolk.
Places will become available only as people leave the group or are inactive, or no shows at several events. I do remove inactive members on a regular basis to keep the group filled with only women interested in building real friendships. Please understand that not all membership requests are approved.
We do have admission standards. You are welcome to join if you are 40+, if you don't have a pattern of no shows with other groups, are free of drama, and if you can bring a smile to the our next meetup. If you are normal, sane, and secure, you'll get in! Please have a real, recognizable photo of your face when you join, and a valid email address. If you are a cat, puddle or flower, you won't get in. We want to be able to recognize you at an event, and greet you as a friend.
We do post pictures of group events on Meetup and Facebook, so when you join, you are agreeing to be photographed.
READ THIS PLEASE: WE ALWAYS HAVE A WAITING LIST. ONCE YOU JOIN OUR WAITING LIST, WE WILL INVITE YOU TO EVENTS. IF YOU DON'T ATTEND AN EVENT IN THE FIRST 30 DAYS YOU ARE ON THE WAITING LIST, YOU WILL BE REMOVED FROM THE LIST. You can ONLY attend a meetup event that is specifically for potential members until we approve your membership. Then, our whole calendar is accessible. While you are waiting to be a member, you are also welcome to join events at my other meetupS, too:
Our annual dues are $20 per year for new members collected annually (year ends on April 14), paid at your first meetup, or by Paypal. Renewals are $15.
