This is a group only for older women, 55 and OVER, who wish to expand their social networks, make & deepen friendships, become inspired - learn something new & just have fun! Originally designed to target women who live in Johnson County - this group found we could not be contained within Johnson County boundaries! (You must post a picture with your application as we are a private group and it's part of our security check. It also shows us who we are looking for at events.) There are yearly dues due in January to help cover costs of website and other things. (These dues are pro-rated for the first year)
So many things can be shared with girlfriends: a movie, playing cards, wine tasting, cooking, games, shopping or meeting for Happy Hour!
We have re-occurring monthly meetups to consider, such as Game Night, Book Club, JCS Happy Hour, DDD-Diners Dives and Drive-ins (which is a meal at a nearby NON-CHAIN restaurant), Mexican Dominoes (both beginning and advanced), Sunday Sharing, Craft Night, Monthly Day Trips, and a weekly Breakfast. You will find these groups listed on the meetup home page or calendar. We add other unique offerings throughout the month as something of interest comes up.
All of our meetups are space-limited because they are hosted in women's homes or we make reservations. For this reason, we require that you make a COMMITMENT to the event if you RSVP and take one of the few slots available. If you have r.s.v.p.ed and see that you will NOT BE ABLE to attend, we ask that you CANCEL your r.s.v.p. so that someone from the waitlist can be notified AS SOON AS POSSIBLE that a slot has opened up for them. After three r.s.v.p. no-shows (without canceling) a member is removed from this group. If you sign up for events and cancel within the last 24 hours you may be removed based on the discretion of the organizer as this makes our reservations wrong or tells people on the waitlist that they can go, but way too late for them to know it. Please don't sign up too early and come off asap when you know you can't come. This is a very important part of the regs for this group.
This is definitely NOT a political or religious group, and those issues need to be addressed in other groups, NOT this one. The average age of our members is around 65-70. We aren't as big of a group as others so that we can really get to know each other. Please remember we are a social group of ladies, 55and over, that are just out to have fun!!
If you really desire to build your girlfriend network - please join us!
