What we're about

Ok, now the kids are older or out of the house and you're ready for the next great stage of your life. Want to meet others similar to yourself? Live in the area of NYC or Long Island? Then this group is for you.

Welcome to the "Greater NYC and Long Island Over 40 and Ready For Fun" Meetup group. This group is for all of us who want to put a big dose of fun into their lives by making new friends to share the joy of life with. It is not a "singles group" exclusively but is rather for anyone who likes to have fun which, I hope includes you!

I am trying to keep this a "Yes" only group so, if the timing of a certain event doesn't work for you or it is not something that you are interested in, we understand and we'll see you at some other event. In that case, please don't feel like you need to respond by RSVPing with a "No" but if you are planning to join us at an event, please RSVP "Yes" as early as possible to help us create some buzz about that event.

All members are invited to post events to the group and anyone who would like to become a sponsor of it is invited to do that as well for a small one time fee.
