What we're about

Have you recently sent a child off to college (or coming soon)? Are you feeling a strange void? Wondering what to do with your free time? The Peninsula Recent Empty Nesters are a group of friendly, dynamic adults who enjoy a wide variety of activities now that our kids have moved out and we have more free time. While socializing, it's easy to discuss the challenges and joys of parenting a college student and share insights learned along the way. Come celebrate or commiserate this exciting new chapter with us.

Some of our past events include: potlucks in members' homes; wine tasting and picnic in Napa; music in the park; hike to a local winery; cooking together in a member's home and private jazz concert. We encourage all members to suggest new events and guest host them.

We are currently recruiting more members, especially dad nesters to balance out the ratio of male to female members. Singles and couples are welcome. I hope to see you at an upcoming event.

5th Anniversary Potluck

Jim's house

Time has flown and it's time to celebrate the 5th anniversary of Peninsula Empty Nesters! We began with a casual potluck where Empty Nesters could connect with each other. We have now grown to 300+ members, so let's celebrate with another potluck. This is a very welcoming group and all members are encouraged to join us. Please bring your favorite dish and beverage to share. Feel free to play a game of bocce or stroll the vineyard. Also, please bring your ideas for future Empty Nester activities. It would be great if 6-8 people would volunteer to organize an activity this year for the group. Patty P.S. Please park in the Notre Dame lot across the street and carefully cross Ralston - the cars come fast.
