What we're about

This is a daytime meetup group for the newly- retired woman looking to make new friends in Newington. We're planning pool parties, cruises on the CT river, museum tours, comedy club visits, brewery and vineyard trips....whatever we can dream up! There is a yearly dues of $10, payable on your first event of the year, to defray Meet-up Site costs. If you are looking for fun things to do in the DAYTIME, this is finally the Meetup you've been looking for. Hope to see you soon!

Salvation Army 50+ Camp Week

Connri Camp Youth Camp

Camp Conn RI in Ashford is a summer camp for kids most of the year, BUT this week is for us! Anyone 50 yrs of age and up who lives in West Hartford, East Hartford, Hartford, Newington, Wethersfield, Windsor or Bloomfield are qualified to attend . At only $100 , it's a truly affordable vacation! That pays for lodging for 4 nights, all meals, activities, AND transportation to and from camp. I attended the last 2 years and loved it! The food is VERY good. The rooms are clean and comfortable (airconditioned), and I love the projects, activities, and nature hikes. Just like summer camp when you were a kid!! They also have worship services every day which you can attend or not. (either /or is fine) Call[masked], ext.113 for more info, or to schedule an appointment to sign up.
