Hello... my name is Joyce. I took this group over from Beth when she decided to discontinue running it and because I'm already paying the monthly rate for a Meetup Group which automatically comes with 3 meetup groups. So I thought what the heck...at least, for now, I'll keep this one going. I made a few changes - 1) anybody can join. 2) anyone can schedule Meetups (I tried to change the settings to allow for this. If it doesn't work, send me a message and I'll make you an event organizer).
If this system does not work well, then I'll take recommendations for changes. It would be great if people would plan/schedule events. I didn't take this over with any intention of trying to make it grow and prosper, but instead in hopes of others having the opportunity to connect with others and, if they choose to, lead events. And, I didn't want to see a perfectly good meet-up group die on the vine. :) Feel free to message me if you want access to plan events. I don't think I can give access universally, I think I need to do it on an individual basis. But I'm happy to do it.
I left Beth's write up below so people could know a little history about this meet up.
My name is Beth Corsi.
I started attending events from this group from it's inception in January of this year.
I had joined several different groups, and this group, in particular, was extremely welcoming.
I have now inherited the group from it's founder, Jessica Nicklos.
Jess did a great job with the group and it has grown to over 900 members in less than a year!
Jess has now moved on to other things and has graciously entrusted me with her "baby".
In the spirit of what I so appreciated when joining this group, I will strive to make it fun, and even just as importantly, inclusive.
Because I would like this group welcome to everyone, I am taking out the "singles" element and making the group available to anybody who would like to join us.
We try to do a variety of activities from bowling (a group favorite) and mini golf, to Happy Hours and Board Game Night.
I would also like to incorporate some community outreach programs into the mix.
Please feel free to take that leap and join us on one of our events and bring ideas to our growing table!
The group is Northern Palm Beach County, so most events will take place in Palm Beach Gardens, North Palm Beach, West Palm Beach, Palm Beach and Jupiter. I will try to incorporate as far as Stuart if I get enough participation.
Looking forward to meeting you soon!
**No Shows are taken seriously - if you RSVP "Yes" and do not show up to certain events (those requiring reservations, an accurate count, or we have a wait list), you will be removed from the group immediately. If you are a chronic "No Show" (3 strikes) you will be removed from this group.**
