What we're about
We are active singles, age 60 and over.
Most of our events are getting together for Happy Hour and some lunches &dinners.
We are geographically based and our events are located in the West Denver Metro area. GLADLY is an acronym for: Golden, Lakewood, Arvada, Denver West, Littleton, and Yes… other West Denver communities (Wheat Ridge, Morrison, Genesee).
This group makes it a priority to be friendly and welcoming to new members. If you are looking for a group where you will be instantly welcomed and accepted, if you are looking to make new friends in the area, then this group is for you!
We ask that you do not discuss your views politics, religion or the Covid vaccine. These are very sensitive subjects and are apt to cause discourse. We also ask that you do not save seats for anyone. When you tell someone that the seat they are about to sit in is saved for someone else, it creates a very awkward situation and makes them feel unwanted. Please be open to sitting next to new people and possibly you'll make a new friend!
We want our events to be fun and welcoming to all!
This group strives for a mix of 1/3 guys, 2/3 gals at our events. To achieve this, we may move people from the wait list, to "a confirmed" attendee ahead of earlier responses. Understanding this policy is a requirement of being a member of the group.
A recent close-up photo of your face (no mask) is also required for membership. This helps us to recognize you at events.
If you find you cannot attend, please try and cancel 24 HOURS prior to the event. That way those on the WAIT-LIST will be changed to GOING with a reasonable amount of notice to attend. Any cancellation less than 5 hours before the start of an event will be considered a No Show.
Additionally, MAKE SURE to remove your name from the WAIT-LIST once you can no longer attend with whatever time is left.
The system can change your status from WAIT-LISTED to GOING with VERY little notice. Sometimes people cancel at the last minute, and sometimes the venue is contacted and agrees to accommodate a few extra people. If you are changed to GOING, and you do not attend, it is also considered a "No Show."
Members will receive a warning for their 1st No Show. After that, those who acquire 2 No-Shows in 6 months may be dropped from the group.
Emergencies are always excepted.
Due to demand, we are not accepting guest requests. To attend events, you must be a member.
· IMPORTANT NOTE: All events are “participate at your own risk”. Life is risky. No organizer is a professional meeting planner or guide. By signing up for any of events – social evenings, trail walks, hikes, or other, you acknowledge that you are solely responsible for your own health and safety. Drive safely, be prepared for activities.
