There are lots of Meetup groups out there focused on developing new friendships between strangers, but, what happens when strangers meet, become friends, and want to simply focus on building and growing their own blossoming friendships? That is what this group is all about - the chance to get to know one another better, the comfort of meetups with people you've hung out with before, the advantage of knowing what to expect from each other, and the opportunity to explore and adventure with people with whom you know you're going to have fun.
We want to keep our group and many of our meetups on the smaller side, as we feel it is the best way to get to know people. Our group will grow as our friendships do. We want active members whom we know or who are recommended by other members and who will help build a community of kindness, respect, and fun.
We will continue to do the sorts of activities we were doing together in the groups in which we first met. These include enriching our knowledge of the wonderful area in which we live through tours and lectures; bettering our health through walking in 5Ks and going on hikes; challenging ourselves with trivia; exploring the arts by attending concerts, plays, and visiting museums; working on our co-operative skills through murder mystery dinners and escape rooms; gaining new perspectives via a monthly book club; sharpening our skills at or learning new crafts; and, of course, enhancing our friendships through various social activities such as movie nights, comedy clubs, karaoke, brunches, and dinners. We are always open to new ideas, as well
