What we're about
Fun & Fab GG is a 50+ WOMEN'S ONLY group of those who find themselves on their own. Lost your partner? Divorced or a long time single? This group is geared for those over fifty ladies who want to develop close friendships with other women and have a wonderful time in the process.
My desire is to have this group be the sisterhood for over-fifty single ladies on their own. To develop friendships that will be long lasting and will bring us through the upcoming years. And be a place to request recommendations for just about anything (home improvement needs, doctors, dentists, etc. – an Angie’s list of sorts).
**Please note - this is NOT A DATING SITE.
I hope to coordinate at least one event each month that will be fun for everybody. I work full-time so please bear with me. And as we all have a variety of interests, anyone is welcome to host an event that might be more in line with their own personal interests. Just ping me and I’ll help to coordinate this. I’m also hoping to set up some sub-groups with their own sub-group organizer (Euchre, bunco, book club, etc.), as I won’t be able to attend everything.
Otherwise, I’ll be looking to schedule any of:
· Dining out (lunch or dinner)
· Craft shows
· Broadway shows
· Game nights
· Local events (concerts, summer fairs, etc.)
Annual dues of $5 have recently been initiated and are non-refundable. Meetup charges a monthly fee to organizers and this will help to offset that cost. All new members will be required to pay these dues within 30 days of group approval by the organizer.
We need to keep this group free of drama – which is defined as gossip, personal/verbal attacks, and any action that brings negativity into the group. We’re here to have fun :).
Rules of the group:
· We are all here to meet new people. So that every member feels welcome, there will be no seat saving at events. If you’re waiting for someone, please greet them at the entrance to the event and then be seated. Keep purses on only the chair you occupy.
· Guests are welcome for one initial event. After that, they will be expected to join the group.
Removal from the group will occur for the following reasons:
*Being a continual “no show” – defined as responding that you’ll be attending but not showing up. 3 no-shows and you’ll be termed.
*Excessive cancelling, especially less than 48 hours before an event
*Attending events without RSVP’ing that you’ll be attending
*Any negative or offensive behavior
*No check-in to the group for 12 months (you’ll be termed but please feel free to re-join when you feel you’ll have time to participate) – this will begin in 2022.
A request to join this group means that you have read and agreed to all of the above.
“A seasoned woman is spicy. She has been marinated in life experiences. Like a complex wine, she can be alternately sweet, tart, sparkling, mellow. She is both maternal and playful. Assured, alluring, and resourceful. The seasoned woman knows who she is. She could be any one of us, as long as she is committed to living fully and passionately in the second half of her life, despite failures and false starts.
- Gail Sheehy
“A strong woman is one who feels deeply and loves fiercely. Her tears flow as abundantly as her laughter. A strong woman is both soft and powerful, she is both practical and spiritual. A strong woman in her essence is a gift to the world.”
- Native American saying
Let’s get out there and have some fun! Thanks and I hope to meet you soon!
