Think of our group name, "Ground Zero", as a metaphor for starting over after divorce or death of a spouse. Most of us have experienced one or the other, and we have found that having fun activities and shared experiences help people move forward to a happier future. We are all about making friends in real life! Most of our activities are in the south Charlotte area, since that is where the majority of our members live. Please consider driving time to events before joining, and look for other social groups near where you live. We also require that your Ground Zero profile picture clearly show your face alone, not in a group photo.
We are a friendly singles social group of age 50+ men and women that live in the Charlotte, NC metro area and nearby parts of South Carolina. Many of our members have moved here from other areas of the USA, and some have lived in other countries. Members form many friendships within the group, and couples that meet at Ground Zero are always welcome at our events. We try really hard to plan a good variety of events and strive to have an event on our calendar for every Friday and/or Saturday night. These events may include outdoor concerts, festivals, dinner & dancing to live music, dining at nice restaurants, meet & mingle happy hours, bowling, movies and other special events. Ground Zero has a 30-day free trial period with annual dues of $12 per year if paid online, or $10 if paid by cash or check to an Organizer. New members can pay dues by clicking on the members dues box in the left margin of the members list page. Former members can pay online using the pop up box that appears when you log in. Dues are used to pay group operating costs and to compensate the organizer.
All of the Organizers and Event Hosts at Ground Zero are in it because we get great joy in seeing people of good faith and character form bonds from common experiences. We want to create lasting friendships and have been very successful at that! Join us! Have fun with us! The more MeetUps you attend, the more you will become family! SIGN UP and SHOW UP!!! That's where it starts!
