This Meetup is for men and women in and around the Kansas City area who are interested in socializing and making new acquaintances and friendships in social settings. While this group was "born" in Olathe, KS we welcome members from anywhere in the KC area. All age groups above 18 are welcome! I'm Jeff, and I began running this group in August 2017 to keep what our original organizer started, to meet new friends and try new things. It's been a lot of fun so far! If you'd like to join but feel nervous about not knowing anyone in the group, either Christine, Jan, John, one of the Event Hosts or I'll be there to make sure you feel comfortable and welcome. The co-organizers and Event Organizers of this group are fantastic people and as far as I'm concerned the best we could possibly have to make this all work so well. Our group is diverse, we enjoy welcoming new members at our events and we always welcome your ideas and feedback.
Some things we like to do include happy hours, live events, live music, festivals and fairs, adult board game nights, painting parties, ball games, dancing, and socializing. We also have an annual Christmas Party. Most of our events take place on the Kansas side or just a few miles away for the convenience of our members, so you won't have to worry about fighting traffic to get downtown before happy hour ends. :)
Some of our goals are to have a minimum of one event per week, listen to all ideas from the group, welcome all people who attend each event the way we were welcomed our first time attending, make good friends and most of all just have FUN.
Occasionally we will partner with other groups at events. We have no intentions to compete with other groups. In fact, we strongly encourage all members to join other groups to experience all the fantastic events as well as people in MeetUp. If anyone wants recommendations for other groups we are happy to share ones we enjoy.
While dating may occur within the group we sincerely request that when someone says no that means no. This group is not designed specifically for dating. This is not a "Hook-Up" group!
This group will only accept advertising messages and solicitations for outside products or services with the approval of the group Organizer.
Members that have not accessed the group website in more than one year may be removed. This is to keep our membership to the group somewhat current and if any member is removed for this reason they are welcome to rejoin.
Let's be friends! Thanks for considering joining our group!
