What we're about
Super Seniors organizes opportunities for seniors to socialize with other seniors in Raleigh and surrounding areas. We will gather for brunches, lunches and dinners, watch movies, volunteer, go to Farmers Market, go to Museums, and attend various other festivals and events of interest. If there is enough interest, we may take day or weekend trips-maybe even go on a cruise. Actually, member age range is approximately late 40s to 80s (average age 60s). We are all about being positive, having a good time, trying new things, and meeting new people. Basically, be courteous and be kind. No cliques. Sit with different people and make new friends.
Super Seniors is NOT a dating site. A member should NOT peruse the list of members and send out messages to individuals he does not know. Even though on the surface a message saying "You have a nice smile" or "I want to meet you" does not sound harmful, it may make ladies uncomfortable. If a member is reported for sending unwelcome messages to members he does not yet know, his profile may be inactivated. Over 80% of our members are ladies, but some are married and many are not interested in forming a relationship, so please do not violate their privacy. (This does not mean you could not date another member, it just means you need to know them first and there must be mutual interest.)
Margaret B. and Anne R. organize Super Seniors. If you have questions about the group, you can contact either or both of us. In addition, other members act as event hosts. Since there are multiple hosts, you might see more than one Super Seniors event on the same date at same time. Choose one or none.
Different hosts may observe different rules for events. For events hosted by Margaret, there will be no political discussion as she believes that topic is stressful for many. For events hosted by other leaders, they can make that decision for each of their events.
Super Seniors observes a NO SHOW policy. What this means is that if you find you cannot attend an event for which you are signed up, you must change your RSVP for that event to NOT GOING at least 48 hours before the event time AND if you are signed up you must show up for the event. Failure to change a RSVP at least 48 hours before event start time or failure to show up for the event will result in member being flagged with a NO SHOW. If a member accumulates 3 NO SHOWS, that member will be removed from the group. HOWEVER, if that member has an extenuating circumstance, he/she can notify the Event Host and the Host will make determination if it was an excused absence in which case the NO SHOW will be waived. (In these times of COVID, being sick or being exposed to someone who is sick is an acceptable excuse.)
If you are on the WAITLIST, you should NOT attend the event since space is usually limited. However, if a member on the GOING list changes his/her RSVP, the next person on the WAITLIST will move to the GOING list and receive an email notice, and they will be expected to attend. Space is available on a chronological basis depending on time you submit a RSVP. If you are on the WAITLIST and find you would not be able to attend IF your name was reached, please go ahead and change your RSVP to NOT GOING so the next name on the WAITLIST after yours will receive notice to attend.
Do NOT submit a RSVP to save a space "just in case" you decide to attend, when in most cases you will change to NOT GOING at last minute. This is rude to other members who may not know if they can get in until the last minute. If we detect this behavior, your RSVP will be changed to NOT GOING by leaders.
Do NOT click NOT GOING if you do not choose to attend an event. It is understood that you are not going if you do not RSVP that you will be attending. NOT GOING should only be used if you initially intended to attend but later changed your mind.
There is no membership fee for joining Super Seniors. Your organizers are volunteers who also want to enjoy events. Keep negative comments and complaints to a minimum. Feel free to offer suggestions of upcoming events or favorite restaurants. If there aren’t enough events in your area or for your interests, consider becoming an event host and scheduling events for your area. See Margaret or Anne to express interest in becoming a leader.
Super Seniors requires a clear, close-up picture of your face without sunglasses or a hat so we can recognize your pretty/handsome face and greet you at events.
Super Seniors does not accept any liability for any injuries sustained during an event or en route to an event. All participation is at your own risk.
You will pay for your own meals and other expenses required for an event. For most events, you will need to provide your own transportation to events you sign up for. If you carpool, you should offer your driver money for gas and parking fees. (If you are not a good driver or do not have a reliable vehicle, please do not offer to drive others to an event.)
Read the event descriptions thoroughly before you ask a question. Most information (date, time, location, details) are on the page. If you still have questions about an event, you can either post a public comment under that event (like to inquire about carpooling) or send private message to the Event Organizer for that event.
Please do not wear perfume, after shave, or other strong scents to Super Seniors events. Some members have allergies to these products.
Selling or business solicitation of other members at group events is not allowed.
Yes, the list is a long one, but we have found it necessary to spell it out. Failure to meet these expectations can result in removal from the group, which will be at sole discretion of the organizers.
