What we're about
Hi to the 70 old? meetup members. I decided I would step up to be the organizer for the group rather than see it fade away. I really like the notion of a group for women of about my age who are still active and looking for activities and events doing things together. So, let's try to keep this going.
Bogie has agreed to be a co-organizer. This group is open to all women of a certain age, with no barriers based on such arbitrary and artificial concerns such as marital status, ethnicity, "race" (I put that in parentheses because I believe there is only the human race and the rest is just skin color), orientation, political affiliation, or economic status. We announce age 70 because that is what we are and there are few groups out there for us, but if someone of an age that is in the neighborhood would be comfortable with us, I think we could be welcoming.
The members have chosen that this group is for women and we will keep it that way. I have attended 50+ and 60+ social groups for both men and women, so there are quite a few out there.
I will try to come up with some activities in western Wayne County soon and Bogie will be looking for activities, as well, most of them in Washtenaw. If any of you know of an upcoming event, or just want to invite a group of women to join you for dinner or go to the movies, just contact Bogie or I and we will post it for you and make you the contact person (Meetup calls that being a host, but it's just being the contact person).
So, let's try to keep this going. Contact us with questions, suggestions, and ideas.
