New beginnings in 2021 ~
Ladies, it has been quite a year (March 2020 to March 2021)! I hope this message finds you safe, healthy and ready to reconnect.
Let's make 2021 a year of creating new social connections along with a Fabulous group of ladies that have been having fun for the past 8 years.
Have you recently relocated leaving close friends and family behind? Or, perhaps friendships have drifted? Studies reveal, women of all ages, change friends every five years. You may have life-long friends in your life, but as life changes, so do friendships. Creating new social connections is both beneficial and critical to health and well being.
Founded in 2012, we are a vibrant community of fun women. Members use our website calendar to organize social events. Each event you create and/or attend, a new connection is made; before you know it, you have a new Circle of Friends.
How this works? We encourage everyone to suggest and organize events; number of attendees can be capped, if a smaller group is desired. Many members choose a location within their neighborhood or surrounding area and branch out from there. Start simple: a small group event like a happy hour, gathering for a walk in your neighborhood or simply meeting for coffee at a restaurant. Because so many ladies take an active role you will see a variety of fun events. This creates frequent opportunities o meet new people and make new friend-connections.
What you bring: Involvement! We all pledge to create fun opportunities to get together. We ask that you add events to the calendar. We ask that you bring your best: plenty of humor, generosity, sensitivity and kindness.
Our goal: To foster a supportive, inspiring environment and encourage each other to develop authentic and strong friendships. We consider this our community, YOUR community; a place to take risks and try something new, something big. Something you've always wanted to do. For example: training to complete a fitness event! Are you missing a girls night out or just chatting on the phone? We will be cheerleaders, empowering each other to meet goals. While making friends along the way.
Check us out for several months; if you like our group, please join by paying the nominal annual membership fee. Your fees offset the cost of running this group. Thanks! Welcome to the Circle; we are glad you are here.
History: Our first chapter was founded in Alexandria, VA in January, 2012. Women's Circle of Friends-Naples Chapter began after a friend moved, from Alexandria to Florida. We established a Chapter in Greenville, NC, in 2016. And so it goes: As women relocate, our groups help with the transition and creating new friendships. Women's Circle of Friends has been a game changer for me and I hope it will be for you as well.
Is this YOUR time to get out of the comfort zone. Take a leap of faith and join us. Welcome to the Circle; we are glad you are here. If our group speaks to you and you like to host/organize and make things happen, E-mail: Derinda Weber @firstname.lastname@example.org.
