This group is for people who want to have fun, meet new people, and try new things! We'll go wine tasting, try new restaurants, have great conversations with others, go to movies, and more. We want to meet interesting people, have interesting conversations, and make new friends. We'll have events like kayaking, dinner, brunch, dancing, or anything else that looks like fun... If you have a good idea, just make a suggestion!
NOTE: Please do not wait until the last minute and not show up. The organizers work hard to make reservations, the restaurants expect a certain number, and there may be members on the wait list. Sometimes plans must unavoidably change and some members will be unable to attend. In that case, please cancel your RSVP as soon as you know. Members with a history of "no-shows" will be blocked from the group.
Fourth Annual Pageo Holiday Market! It will be held at Pageo Lavender Farm complete with it’s picturesque setting - featuring a variety of the region’s most interesting art, crafts, food, and drinks from local purveyors.
Our book selection this time is 11/22/63 by Stephen King about a man who travels to the past in an attempt to stop the JFK assassination.
The book is extra long plus we have the holidays, so we are taking some extra time to read it.
We’ll be eating an early lunch on the lovely outdoor patio of Ten Pin so we can continue to physically distance. You can find their it on Facebook or yelp if you want to look at their menu.
Because of Covid, the group is limited to 6, so if you rsvp then can’t go be sure to change your rsvp.
Jake Epping is a thirty-five-year-old high school English teacher in Lisbon Falls, Maine, who makes extra money teaching adults in the GED program. He receives an essay from one of the students—a gruesome, harrowing first person story about the night 50 years ago when Harry Dunning’s father came home and killed his mother, his sister, and his brother with a hammer. Harry escaped with a smashed leg, as evidenced by his crooked walk.
Not much later, Jake’s friend Al, who runs the local diner, divulges a secret: his storeroom is a portal to 1958. He enlists Jake on an insane—and insanely possible—mission to try to prevent the Kennedy assassination. So begins Jake’s new life as George Amberson and his new world of Elvis and JFK, of big American cars and sock hops, of a troubled loner named Lee Harvey Oswald and a beautiful high school librarian named Sadie Dunhill, who becomes the love of Jake’s life—a life that transgresses all the normal rules of time.
