What we're about

This group is for people who do not have a 'significant other' to socialize with, but want to get out, meet people, make friends, and do fun things with others of similar age. We schedule regular social events that are fun and relaxing with a focus on social interaction - laughing, talking, eating, drinking, listening to live music and dancing. We are a very friendly and welcoming group.

Events are primarily located in Stark County and the surrounding areas including Wayne, Tuscarawas, Carroll, Columbiana, Mahoning, and Portage Counties. Everyone is welcome no matter where you live.

This is not a dating site! We get together for socializing and friendship. No one should ever feel pressured in any way to provide their phone number, accept a date, consume alcohol, dance, or anything else they are not comfortable with. Of course, as you make friends, it is perfectly acceptable to exchange contact information and get together separately from meetup events.

Please post a recognizable picture; this makes it much easier to get to know (and remember) each other. If you are uncomfortable with this, please message me so I know you are not a robot or a creep. We try to provide a safe environment for socializing. We also wear name tags at events to facilitate socializing: if you see someone wearing a nametag, you know they are there to socialize and it is safe to go up and talk to them.

Actual relationship status is not relevant. Even if you are married or dating, you are welcome if you come alone (or at least mingle and socialize individually).

While couples are allowed, it is important that each person is open to mingling and socializing with others, and also that their partner is OK with it. Couples that socialize only as a couple tend to put a damper on group socializing and send the wrong message: Someone that is "looking" will think "My chances of finding someone tonight are high" and that is NOT what the group is about! And someone that is "not looking" will be discouraged and think they do not belong - while that IS specifically who the group is for. If your intent is to stick with your partner most of the time, then this group really isn't for you.

You don't have to be over 40 - but most of us are. You are welcome to join us if you don’t mind hanging out with people that are well over 40.

If you have any questions or concerns, or suggestion for an event, please feel free to contact one of the organizers.

TGIF at TDs / Twisted Citrus

Twisted Citrus

TD's Tailgate Grill on North Main Street in North Canton is opening the Twisted Citrus side for us so we can have our own private room! We will be ordering from TD's full menu (including alcohol) but please enter through the Twisted Citrus entrance. TD’s Tailgate Grill is Stark County'’s ONLY Sports Bistro with great food and modern décor. From the website: From traditional favorites to secret family recipes, we’ve spent months in the TD’s test kitchen creating and perfecting meals we know you’ll love. Some of the more interesting items found on our menu include our one-of-a-kind wing sauces (like our legendary roasted jalapeno & garlic sauce), our juicy hand-formed burgers, thick and tender grilled pork chops, and have we mentioned the fish tacos yet? Finish up with a little something sweet from our dessert menu, which offers customer favorites like homemade bread pudding and salted buckeye brownies! How could you resist?

Winery Tour By Bus - All Day in Amish Country

Sentry Security Inc

Join us as we board a small bus and spend the day visiting wineries and other Amish Country attractions. The bus will cost $30 per person. The trip will last all day. We will meet at 10:00 in the parking lot of Sentry Security at 4720 Everhard Rd behind Foxy Golf & Laser Quest. Look for the bus! Feel free to bring snacks on the bus, for yourself or to share. You can even pack your lunch if you prefer. There is 'some' room under the seats and in overhead bins, but there is NOT room for large coolers. Glenna offered to provide mimosa for breakfast on the bus. Do we have any volunteers to bring bagels, or other finger food, for breakfast? So we have something in our stomach before the first winery. Itinerary: Stop #1 Baltic Mill Winery Stop #2 Guggisberg Doughty Glen Winery Stop #3 Lunch at Charm Family Restaurant. Or, if you prefer, you can spend this time visiting local shops including Hiland Bikes of Charm and Charm Harness and Boot (both less than a block from the restaurant). Stop #4 French Ridge Vineyards Stop #5 Marsh Vineyards and Ugly Bunny Winery Stop #6 Sunny Slope Winery We plan to be back around 8PM but please understand all times are approximate. When you sign up, please pay me as soon as possible. I strongly prefer PayPal - use the link PayPal.Me/BobR1003/30 (make sure you are "Sending to a friend") If unable to use PayPal please contact me to make payment arrangements.

Sunday at Gervasi

Gervasi Vineyard

Once again it is time for our annual summer event with the Akron Canton Wine Group. Come enjoy a Sunday afternoon at Gervasi Vineyard with friends from both groups! We will gather on the lawn behind the Bistro (near the Piazza). Food and beverages can be ordered at the Piazza outdoor counters. Bocce and cornhole games are available. Feel free to walk the grounds! Please bring a lawn chair (but if you forget, it's OK because there are usually extras). This event is posted with both groups, but please only sign up with one group.

Annual Birthday Bash

The Annual Birthday Bash goes down on the farm! We will have a campfire area just for our group on the Maize Valley Farm. Bring a chair, food to share, and a portable table if you have one. Wine and beer to be purchased at the winery. Enjoy a bottle of Redneck Red, Hanky Panky or Big Red Pecker! Music for the hootenanny and birthday cake will be provided. See you there!
