What we're about

This is a group for over 50 (physically, certainly not mentally) folks to get together socially in a variety of venues. Everyone has a chance to suggest their favorite activity and have others join them. Everyone has a chance to participate in a new activity by joining what's suggested. Activities can be anything from golf, dinner, dancing, having a home BBQ, attending a concert, or board game night. Or, in other words, a chance for us "over 50" folks to make new friends.

This group is open to singles AND COUPLES (even married ones.. :) .... )!!! And, there are no age restrictions. We welcome everyone even if your are under 50 years old and just want to experience an evening with a mature, classy, and sophisticated (maybe) group.

ATTENTION - POTENTIAL NEW MEMBERS !!!!!!!

I've been receiving emails asking why a membership was denied. Let the record reflect that to date this group has not denied anyone membership. We all believe in "the more the merrier" theory. So if you have been denied a membership, please check what group has denied you. There are a few Meetup Groups with similar names so perhaps it's one of the other groups that denied you.

Also, this is NOT A DATING SITE!! I've received complaints from members (women and men) that they are being contacted in a way they feel is inappropriate. I.E., through the meetup site via meetup messaging, requesting "one on one" contact information. There is no prohibition in this group keeping members from dating. But, If you want a special relationship in your life, it's best to start with a friendship. Come to the meetup events. Meet other members face to face in a safe (as possible) environment and then go from there.
