What we're about

MPG — Miles per gallon? You know it, because we are going the distance. But, we are, in fact, Maple Grove Boomers — baby boomers, of course. I am new to Maple Grove and, actually, new to Minnesota. I’m a native Floridian, turned Minnesotan in 2017. And there is no looking back, except for visits and perhaps if I become the well known, “snowbird.”

So what is this group about? It’s about socializing with those “boomers” who refuse to be defined by their year of birth, those who are still booming through life in one way or another!

So, let’s dance, sing, travel, socialize, yes — eat, pray, love! Let’s make friendships that will take us the rest of the journey! You may be a born and bred Minnesotan or a transplant like me. Couples, singles, no matter, this is about socialization, fun, enjoying life and building relationships that are uplifting, emotionally supportive and nourishing.

According to MEETUP, there’s a rather large group interested in this type of gathering in the NW Metro Area. So, sign up, get involved and we will make a plan for 2019!

Want to Cruise to Alaska? 🍸🚢🗻🥂🍾🌦

Want to plan a group cruise to Alaska for the end of the summer?! Let’s do it! Planning location to be announced. We will plan on a week-long cruise for July or August 2019, perhaps. Bring your ideas and suggestions! I’m thinking Norwegian Cruise line, because they have great solo cabins. And for those of you who need more space, we can make that happen too! However, be warned — if you book in The Haven — we will all crash your party 😂😂😂

Elm Creek Park

Details? I have no idea. I have lived near Elm Creek Park for a few months, but I know nothing. Do you know the way? Can you lead us? Then please speak up and you can be our guide! ☺️ It just seems like something fun to do at a great time of year and perhaps we go out for brunch or sushi after?
