We're a welcoming and fun group of friends age 50 (give or take) and up. Most of us live in and around Ithaca, but we have plenty of farther-flung members.
Our primary event is a weekly dinner out – usually Wednesdays, and usually in or near Ithaca. All Meetup members are invited to the dinners and other events listed on Meetup, but we do need your RSVP – just use the “Attend” button at the bottom of the event page.
A second, OPTIONAL, level of membership is available for the low, low price of $28/year. If you’re a dues-paying member, we put you on the email list for the many other member-organized events that occur regularly. Members invite each other to all kinds of things – a play or concert, a dance event or class, hiking, local events, game nights, and lots more. There’s also a picnic or two, some house parties, and a Christmas party, which are for dues-paying members only. This level of membership is OPTIONAL, but well worth it.
Come on out for dinner, meet friends, and have fun!
IMPORTANT NOTE: To approve you as a member of this group, we will need --
(1) Your profile name MUST be the actual name you want people to call you ("John," or "Jane S," etc.). Any fake name or "handle" ("mountain man," etc.) will be rejected.
(2) We request -- but do not require -- a real, identifiable, head-and-shoulders face picture. We've had a problem with anonymous people using the group for inappropriate purposes, and this step helps us avoid that. It also helps everyone in the group get to know each other. Please post a picture!
