Verde Valley Girlfriends Pages

We are a group of women around boomer age who look forward to fun new adventures and lots of laughs with girlfriends throughout the Verde Valley.


"The Rules"

As one of the girlfriends said: rules were inevitable... it just takes one transgression to create the need for a common understanding in the form of "rules". I feel a tremendous responsibility to each of you, to provide you with a safe environment, free of drama and stress, a place to have fun and build friendships where we revel in each other's accomplishments and support each other through difficult times. We are all fallible and no one should judge another in this group... kind comments go a lot farther than criticism and both types of comments are remembered by the recipient for a very long time.

Vision/Mission statement:
We create a safe place to have fun and share new experiences in a fun, kind and respectful environment. Drama and stress free, our group of girlfriends seek out, honor and enjoy the best of each other, share triumphs and lend support. Our different life experiences let us bring different gifts and strengths to the group but laughter and kindness are our common thread.

Requirements:
Picture of yourself in your profile, sense of humor, kindness, empathy and receptiveness to new adventures.
-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.

No-shows
I just wanted to let you know about an unwritten policy that I’ve been using since the beginning: If a person has 5 “no show”s, I remove them from being an active member.

The reason for this is that we are a group of women trying to make friends, and you can’t make friends if you don’t show up. And it’s not fair to the host who has created the event - that’s not how friends treat each other.

There is a way to remove “no shows” from your record. If you host an event, I’ll remove a “no-show” for each event you host.

To host an event:

  • List an event on Meetup.com on a date that no other Meetup event exists
  • Answer any on-line questions about your meetup event
  • Show up (!) and welcome the participants

    You can get more details by looking at the “Pages” (Meetup Events - Hosting and Posting) on our site. And I’m happy to help.


    The Inevitable Rules:
    If anyone doesn't agree with or support the Vision, or can't comply with the Requirements, please leave this group and find another group that suits you better. No one is allowed to say an unkind word to another member or provide unsolicited criticism - it will not be tolerated.
