This social group is for ladies over 55 (married, divorced, single, widowed or in transition) where you can develop female friendships. Our events will vary throughout the month and are mostly in the North Pinellas & West Pasco area. During this period of health concern we meet at local parks & outdoor venues. Come join to talk, laugh, have a great time and meet kindred spirits.
JUST A FEW THINGS TO KNOW:
COVID19 PRECAUTIONS - By definition our group members are aged over 55 and as a result, most may have underlying or chronic health conditions. Events are small (about 10 women) and we consider ourselves "Bubble Buddies". Also, each member is expected to arrive having a mask. Please avoid events if you have been in contact with someone who has corona-virus, if you have traveled internationally in the last 14 days, or if you currently have a fever, cough or sore throat. If you have been diagnosed with corona-virus I ask you not return to the group until you have been cleared by a medical professional.
GROUP SIZE - We are a small Meetup group where you will get to develop real friendships. Most of us are retired and our events are in the afternoons. If you have an idea for an event just let me know, I'm open to suggestions.
DUES - The dues are $12/yr. to cover website costs, event reservations & supplies. Dues are to be paid sometime during your 30 day trial period. For your convenience you can pay online with a credit card or in cash at one of the events. Dues are non-refundable.
PHOTOS - The group is considered PRIVATE. In order to be approved you must provide a picture with your profile so other members and the organizer can recognize you. Photos will be taken at events so we can remember the fun times and our new friends, If you prefer your picture not be taken, no problem just let folks know.
RSVP - Please respond to a MeetUp only if you are responding YES. Please RSVP NO as soon as you find out you cannot attend. This helps manage "Wait Lists." Please change your attendance from Yes to No if you are unable to attend.
LAST MINUTE CANCELLATIONS & NO SHOWS - We ask all members to cancel their RSVP within a 24 hour period of the event unless otherwise stated. If there is an "emergency" you can call or message the organizer. If a member RSVP's for an event and simply does not attend this is considered a NO SHOW. Two (2) NO SHOWS will result in removal from the group.
RESPECTFUL OF OTHERS: All members are expected to conduct themselves in a positive, friendly spirit. When we are out dining etc, please pay your checks and tip the staff fairly. Please no gossiping or people bashing - it makes all of us uncomfortable! You never know what someone has gone through so please give everyone the benefit of the doubt. I know some of you may have had varied experiences in other MeetUp groups so thank you for giving us a try. Each group is different. When you join our group expect to make new friends and share new experiences.
MOST OF ALL - Have fun, make new friends and if there is somewhere you would like to see the group go, please let me know. ENJOY!!!!
