Our first chapter was founded in Alexandria, VA 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.
Have you recently relocated leaving close friends behind? Are you a snow bird? Lucky you, if you are! Perhaps your friendships drifted over time. Studies reveal women of all ages change friends about every five years. You may have childhood or life-long friends in your life, but as life changes, so do friendships. Creating new friend connections is crucial to our health and well being.
We are: A vibrant community of fun women in our 40’s, 50's, 60's and up, longing to create new friendships. We understand the empowerment of friends, face-to-face connections and community.
How it works? Members make use our website calendar to organize and advertise events. Each event you create and/or attend, a new connection is made; before you know it, you may have a new Circle of Friends. We encourage everyone in our community to suggest and organize events; number of attendees can be capped, should a smaller group be desired. Choose a location within your neighborhood or surrounding area and branch out from there. Sometimes simple is best: Like a small intimate happy hour or meetup for coffee at a restaurant. Because so many ladies take an active role, you will see a variety of fun events and frequent opportunities to meet new people and make new friend-connections.
Your contribution: Intentional involvement! We strive to not be a typical meetup group where one event host does everything. We all pledge and encourage each other to create fun opportunities to get together. We ask that you add events to the calendar and we ask everyone to bring your best you: plenty of humor, generosity, sensitivity and kindness. We foster a supportive, inspiring environment and encourage each other to develop authentic and strong friendships. So many opportunities await to connect or reconnect together: Training to complete a fitness event; enjoying a Girls Night Out; Dinners Out or, In; Movie Nights.
Maybe you want to attend another meet up event and do not want to go alone. Perhaps you have a cause dear, to your heart? Volunteering is way more fun when friends are beside you.
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.
