Naperville TOFU (Time Out For Us) 35 & over Pages

Who We Are:
T.O.F.U Naperville is a group for black women who have at least 35 years. We are a fairly new group and membership requests have been rising since the group's inception! We have open enrollment twice a year. Tofu Naperville was created to give women the opportunity to connect with others who have like interests, concerns, and cultural needs specific to black women.

You must be at least 35 years young and a black woman. Just to come as you are, be yourself, and contribute to the success of the group by attending meetings/activities. We are about relaxing, having fun, and empowering and supporting one another as the highly intellectual, fun, & soulful women that we are.

What We Do:
Our activities/meetups will be as diverse as the group. i.e., spa days, fitness activities, game nights, book reads, getaways, volunteering, and sometimes simply cocktails and conversation. Do you have a great idea for an activity? Something you've always wanted to do but couldn't find the right group to do it with? Bring it on! We welcome new people and ideas. This group is for women who live in the suburbs and crave the common ground that you can only get in a group like Tofu!

When We Meet:
We have Tofu Meetings quarterly, on Sunday evenings around 3:00 or 5:00 pm (generally.) We also have an Official TOFU Activity once a month in which members rotate planning. This activity can range anywhere from a night out at someone's house to a dinner cruise at Navy Pier. We also have "You're Invited" meetups which are unofficial TOFU meetups hosted by a member who has an idea for an event and would like to invite other members to join them; this will be posted on the message board under, you guessed it, the "You're Invited" link. If there is enough interest, we will post it as a TOFU event. (New members (for reasons I'm sure you can understand) must first attend a public activity/meeting before attending one that's scheduled at someone's private place of residence.)

Who We Are Not:
We are not a group that's looking for numbers! Meaning, a group of seven active members goes a lot further than a group of 700 inactive members! So if you are looking to join a group, just to add to your list of meetups, but do not plan to become involved, please reconsider. This group is not for you. Payment of dues DOES NOT guarantee continued membership. Inactive members are actively removed from the group after a certain period of inactivity (which is determined by the organizers.)
