What we're about

Girlfriends, with a focus on the Boomer age, to get together for fun and laughter. The vision for this group is to go to restaurants, museums, concerts, movies, festivals, shopping excursions, and just meeting new people and having fun.

Requirements (no exceptions!): Picture of yourself in your profile, sense of humor, kindness, empathy, receptiveness to new adventures and answers to two questions when signing up.

- The picture must be recent enough and large enough that it can be used to recognize you, so that we can welcome you at events.

- There are two questions, one that we use to determine what kind of activities you would enjoy, and the other question finds a common thread amongst us and lets us plan some activities that may be closer to your home.

You can find more details in the "Pages" section above.

Blank Slate!

Online event

A fun game with lots of laughter. If you are a first-timer, please take a look at YouTube for how to play. One rule unique to the VVGF: if you come up with an answer that makes everyone howl with laughter, you get two points extra. This will be on Zoom, so while we are showing 1 hour, it will only be 40 minutes. It's fun and easy to learn. You will need a piece of scrap paper or a dry erase board for each round (up to 20?) and a pen or sharpie. The paper should be large enough so that when you hold it up, we can all read it. Also have a scrap paper for keeping your own score. First to reach 25 points is the winner! Zoom password: VVGF

Writers' Block: Things You Are Afraid Of

Online event

Write a story, a poem, or a haiku about something you are afraid of or everything you are afraid of. You're not supposed to end a sentence with a preposition!!!! "I'll take tarantulas for $200, Alex!"

Wine and Sign

Online event

This is a SILENT cocktail hour for us to practice American Sign Language. Anyone is welcome, but there will be no talking! Just lots of signing and laughter. We are very much beginners, so don't expect any profound conversation. Bring your own wine. This is an online Zoom event, repeating every Sunday. Password ASL
