The purpose of this Meetup group is to gather a group of Brevard County, Florida friends that can share some of the many interests of the founders, Steve and Jan. We hope to make many new friends and expect to share each others interests. The group is open to singles and couples alike…typically 40 and up.
Steven and Jeanette are a 50s plus couple, with grown children. Steven is a Senior Electronics Engineer working on subsea Robotics. For fun he is a party and event planner, karaoke host and DJ, magician, singer and dreamer. He loves Model Railroading, computers, electronics and everything Disney. Jeanette is a gourmet cook and a fantastic bartender. She loves arts and crafts, Mexican Food, Margaritas, outdoor activities, bike riding, walking and romantic comedies. They both love theme parks, musical theater and concerts, dining out, dancing, shopping, pool parties and bar-b-ques, and most important, friends and family.
In the past, Jan and Steve have joined other social groups, but most have been directed toward singles. Many were based on religion. There was too much pressure and politics in some other groups. Steven and Jan felt the need to form a group for both couples and singles alike, that enjoy many different interests. No pressure. No politics. We are just good friends having great times and creating happy memories. The group is open to both couples and singles aged 40 and up, and exceptions can be made, and we will be having some events that can include younger family members and children. The group plans to host events and Meetups once or twice each month. Some events will be of a general nature, like a trip to the Planetarium Laser show, while other events will be more specialized, like a karaoke party. Some events will be for the guys, like a model railroading Meetup, and some may be for the gals, like gals day at the spa.
Some events may require the purchase of a ticket to a theme park or show, but each event announcement will clearly specify the ticket cost or what to bring. YEARLY dues are $10.00 per person and $15.00 per couple. The first Meetup is free so you can see what we are all about.
Around holiday time, Steve and Jan really shake things up in North Merritt Island. Steve installs over 50,000 lights at their residence, connected to a computerized light and sound controller to synchronize the lights to many popular holiday songs. In addition, 50 large inflatables have been rewired and are also synched to the music. A giant projection screen features Santa conducting the orchestra during the show. One lucky child is selected to start the show by pressing the "EASY" button. The "Holiday Multimedia Spectacular" is a free gift to the community. This year let's start a new tradition by having some of our Meetup Friends join Steve in setting up the Holiday Show...and then bring your friends and family to see what you have helped to create.
We thank you for taking the time to read this long group description, but I can assure you that a great time will be had by all who join and attend our events.
