What we're about
Thanks for your interest. At this time, we are not taking any new members. But we'll put you on the wait-list.
Pls read the items below before sending your request:
****Do you belong to more than 7 meetup grps? If the answer is yes, pls don't send me a request.
Lot of members just join the grp without ever participating in any meetups. We'd much rather have a small group of dedicated friends, than high numbers with low participation Since we are very strict about member participation, if you are already a member of more than 7 meetup groups , we’ll sadly decline your request to be a part of this group. No exception.
****Is your membership info public? If not, then pls make it public before sending a request . If your meetup membership is not public, there is no way for me to know how many groups you belong to/whether you are over committed. You don't have to post your photo (if you want little privacy), but your membership has to be public.
***Most of our meetups are on Saturdays during lunch time(We do go out for dinner on Fridays during summer-but not every month). If you work on Saturday/s, pls don't join this group.
****If you are approved, you must sign up for a monthly lunch/dinner meetup within 24 hours (you could also sign up for other meetups-e.g line dancing, Latin Dancing, Mini Golf, movies, karaoke, trip to Chicago downtown etc, but you must also sign up for our monthly lunch/dinner). You must pick a monthly lunch or dinner scheduled within 60 days of your joining date. You'll be removed if you don't sign up within 24 hours.
****You must attend at least one meetup lunch or dinner every 60 days (you could also join other activities, but you meet/see more people when you come to the lunch or dinner) If you cannot do that, pls don't join this grp. Once in a while , you might have to skip two meetups due to sickness in the family or other family things in which case you just try to make-up and not miss too many future meetups. As long as you have attended 6 meetups-at least 5 lunch/dinner and one any meetup by end of the year, you should be fine.
**** If you are organizing a group like ours, you'll not be allowed to join this group until you remove yourself as an organizer from that grp.
This is a group for women over 50 (married/single) but if you're not 50 yet & would like to join, you're more than welcome. Just be aware that this group is not into the bar scene. It's not about meeting men. It's about good old-fashioned girlfriends hanging out, laughing, going places together, enjoying life and having fun.
We’re a West Suburban based group. We normally do things around Naperville/Aurora/Lombard/Oak Brook areas. If you are not within 20 miles of Naperville, pls don't send a request to be included in the group because it will be hard for you to participate in all of our activities.
NOTE- I pay meetup organization $60 dollars (the exact amount is $59.94) every six months ($120 dollars per year). - So I collect $5 dollars membership fees (per year). Pls note that you don't have to pay anything on your first meetup. We would like you to try the first meetup and make sure that you like the group before paying the membership, so you pay the membership on your second meetup. At the end of the year, members will be entered into a drawing to win a part of the leftover money.
****Your meetup membership must be public all the time so that we know how many meetup groups you belong to.
****Two no-shows-you'll be removed from the grp. So pls change your RSVP if you can't make it to the meetup.
