What we're about

Welcome to LIFE BEGINS @ 40 SOCIAL (FRIENDS) GROUP!! THE FUN & FRIENDLY PLACE WHERE PEOPLE COME TO MEET!! Whether you're single, attached, married, in a common law relationship, separated, divorced, widowed, new in town or within 100 miles of the GTA, this group has been designed specifically for EVERYONE 40++ and also for the more mature 35+ crowd.

For those of you that are finding it difficult to meet friends in your age range with the same Positive Outlook on Life, this group could be your answer. Here you can make new friends and hang out with some old friends. We are a Social Group, NOT a strictly Singles Group, although some people have met at our events. To date, two couples have met at Life Begins at 40 and have gotten married!! So you never know!!

PLEASE NOTE - LIFE BEGINS @ 40 is NOT A BUSINESS GROUP. Selling products or services and handing out business cards to our members at our meetups is strictly prohibited. We are here to get away from work.

***VERY IMPORTANT SAFETY NOTE*** ONLINE TROLLING IS STRICTLY PROHIBITED!! THIS IS MEETUP, NOT AN ONLINE SINGLES SITE. IF YOU WANT TO MEET PEOPLE, COME TO OUR MEETUPS IN PERSON!! YOU WILL BE INSTANTLY REMOVED & BANNED FROM OUR GROUP IF OUR MEMBERS ARE BEING HARASSED!!!

**IMPORTANT** (NO SHOWS) WE GO TO A LOT OF DIFFERENT VENUES THAT NEED TO KNOW OUR NUMBERS FOR EVENTS. SOMETIMES WE HAVE WAITING LISTS FOR EVENTS AS WELL. IF YOU RSVP & CANNOT ATTEND AN EVENT YOU MUST CHANGE YOUR RSVP. MEMBERS WHO NO SHOW OR LATE CANCEL OFTEN WILL AUTOMATICALLY BE MOVED TO THE WAITING LIST WHEN THERE IS LIMITED SPACE. DEPENDABLE MEMBERS WILL BE REWARDED WITH A SPOT.

There is so much to do in the GTA and "Life Begins at 40" Social Events LOVES VARIETY.

January of '17 we went to a beautiful All Inclusive Adult 5 star resort in Cuba.

In January/February of 2018 we cruised the Caribbean and many got solo cabins. We had an amazing time.

We had our amazing Mediterranean Cruise on October 20th of 2019. Call Marge, our travel agent, if you would like to go with us to Cuba at a great golf and beach resort at the end of March, 2020. You can reach Marge at Marville Travel @ 905-891-0111.

We do our very best to set up meetups in affordable and safe environments and we will always do our best to introduce you to our other members. An important aspect is that your host, Alex, is almost always the first to arrive and the last to leave our events, so you will always be looked after.

We just want everybody to relax, have fun, meet new friends, socialize and share wonderful, happy and positive experiences together!! It's really just that simple!

So come and join us and Enjoy Life!!

WE LOOK FORWARD TO MEETING YOU SOON!!!

LB@40 Book Club - Hosted by Sandy Hinds on Zoom

Online event

Up next for Thursday December 2nd

I think I’ll be taking most people out of their comfort zone with this one, but I like to mix it up and get you thinking. I’d also like to get some of our male readers involved with something a little grittier.

Book: Unrepentant: The Strange and (Sometimes) Terrible Life of Lorne Campbell, Satan's Choice and Hells Angels Biker (340 pages)

Author: Peter Edwards (columnist at The Toronto Star, specializing in organized crime).

Genre: biography, non-fiction, true-crime, biker gang life
Book Availability: Book is available in all formats at the library (although no audio from what I can tell) and of course at bookstores and online retailers.

Synopsys: https://www.penguinrandomhouse.ca/books/220149/unrepentant-by-peter-edwards/9780307362575

Format: Sandy will give some background on the author (other books, awards etc). Then we'll move on to some discussion questions and/or a combination of everyone's thoughts on the book. You’ll be asked to rate the book on a scale of 0-10. Respectful discussion is encouraged, books are very subjective and while one person might love it, another might hate it.

Time: Zoom line will be open from 7:15 with a start at 7:30 sharp and aim for a wrap of 9:30. Two hours should allow for a good discussion.

Looking forward to meeting with you again!
