What we're about
This group was created for people in their 30's to 50's interested in making new friends from all parts of the world.
If you are a foreigner living in the area, homesick and eager to connect with other fellow expats, this is where we can all connect, share experiences, and have fun together. We hope to build a cosmopolitan community of like-minded, interesting people that are accepting of ALL different backgrounds, ethnicities & religious beliefs. Friends without borders!
This is an "open forum" social meet-up, so if you have an idea for an event or activity you would like to participate in, you can either post it, or contact the organizers directly, so we can try and plan it together. Any member of this group can host a meet-up. New ideas are always welcome!
The events will take place in Santa Cruz county & nearby cities, and will range from going to coffee shops, happy hour, dining out, movie nights, live music, festivals, theater, comedy shows, museums, art galleries, games, hikes, day trips, mixers, bbqs, potlucks, holiday gatherings, etc...
Now let's meet up and make friends :)
* ATTENDANCE POLICY *
Every group is only as good as its members... so let's aim for an awesome group here, with people that are caring & considerate to others :)
With that said, if you RSVP to an event we're hosting, we’ll be expecting you! If you are unable to attend for any reason, please be courteous and change your RSVP status to "NO" in a timely manner (at least 2 hours prior to the event). By doing so, someone on a waitlist will have the chance to be notified and take your spot. I highly recommend all members to download the free Meetup app on your cell phones to check updates on the go, especially if you're on a waitlist. (Members with 2 "no-shows" or "last-minute" cancellations on their attendance history will be removed from the group, out of respect for those who participate.)
* LEGAL DISCLAIMER *
Members should understand that every participant is responsible for his/her own conduct and safety. The activities provided here are "at-risk" activities and by joining this group, members shall be deemed to have agreed to not hold organizers liable for any mishap, personal injury or property damage resulting from these activities, waiving any claims which they may have against this group and its organizers.
