Next Meetup

VCGG Book Club
Hello Ladies, For the next VCGG Book Club Group, two books have been selected. One is a mystery / thriller, the other humorous. We are looking for more girlfriends to join us, therefore the two genres. Read the one that interests you the most, then join us on December 1st for a discussion on both books. Surrender The Pink by Carrie Fisher (humorous) Surrender the Pink is a romance novel by actress and author Carrie Fisher that was published in 1990. This novel, like most of Fisher's books, is semi-autobiographical and fictionalizes events from her real life. It is said to be loosely based on her short marriage to musician Paul Simon. Last Breath by Michael Prescott (mystery / thriller) Caitlin Osborn was only ten years old when he came for her the first time. Now, 16 years later, LAPD Officer Osborn still suffers from her inescapable childhood fears--made all the more real by a recent wave of bizarre murders. She can see his shadow moving outside her window. She can feel his footsteps--and she recognizes his foul whispers. And for those that do not read or are new to the group, feel free to join us. It's always fun to chat and catch-up with other members.

    What we're about

    About Our Group

    Our names are Marcie and Megan, organizer and co-organizer of Ventura County Girlfriends Group. We have been the organizers as of October 2015. Although this has been a meetup group since 2009, things have changed quite a bit!

    If you want to broaden your social circle and do fun things you are in the right place!

    There is so much fun to be had and lasting friendships to create. If any of you have a little extra time to schedule a meetup you think would be fun, please send me a text 805-701-7884 with the date and time and I will start a meetup with you as the host. This will enable you to enter and edit all the information regarding your meetup. We all need to socialize and I don't mean corporate team building. We like doing a variety of things and we need you to make the event just right.

    Annual Dues

    We ask each member to pay annual dues of $5.00 when you join.

    Please Send to Marcie Navarro at 805-701-7884

    You can do this via PayPal- http://www.paypal.com or Zelle- http://www.zellepay.com .

    Meetup charges The Organizer of the group $20.00 monthly so our group may use their site. Please make your payment using one of the above methods. My cell number Works best for both sites. We do track all dues & donations. Please don't think we do this for monetary gain because this is SO not the case. We believe Ventura County needs our group and new girlfriends are joining all the time. Along with the monthly payment to Meetup, dues are used to cover expenses like, Birthday Cakes, Venues like Paint & Sip etc. (Sometimes there are members who can't afford to pay $40.00 to do Paint n Sip or other venue Meetups. Any surplus dues are used for this as we can help out by paying up to 1/2 of the fee to make it easier on a member) Organizers are not compensated for their time it takes to organize and host events. We welcome as much help as you can give!

    Your Ideas Please!

    If you have any ideas or know what you would like to do as a group, please send me a text 805-701-7884 with the meetup place, the date and time. I will start the meetup for you and assign you as the host. After you are the host you may add all the details you want to the meetup your scheduled meetup.

    Most importantly we want your commitment to meetup with us at least once every month or two!
