What we’re about
Active, mature, single, Seattle-region people gathering for widely diverse activities. Among events our group may schedule are: park walks, museum visits, cultural and music festivals, picnics, meals and beverages at locally-owned businesses, concerts, talks, movies/theater performances, live music in parks, trivia nights, short lessons/workshops taught by members or others, hikes, kayaking/canoeing, sports events, regional road trips, and more.
We strive to be inclusive, kind, and considerate to each other. Please ensure that you ask permission before taking photos of other members or posting them online. Please do not contact anyone you have not met for purposes other than communicating for group activities.
All potential and current members: Please include a recent photo of your own face (minus others in the pic.) It really helps in recognizing people gathering in public locations. If it's an old pic we may miss each other. If you wish to upload or change the pic you submit or submitted in the past, please see these instructions: https://help.meetup.com/hc/en-us/articles/360002878591-Changing-or-removing-a-profile-photo
If all members, would please go to Settings and enable messaging from organizers and members (who may also be leading activities) it would help greatly in communications around gatherings. [Click on the down arrow beside your photo to begin, Settings, then Privacy.] Under the same category you can also choose to show your other Meetup groups or share your interests by checking "Show interests on profile." Thank you!
Dues for yearly membership are $5, donated in person to the primary organizer. Without both your dues and participation this group cannot exist. It costs $218 a year to simply pay the Meetup site to host the group, along with time spent researching and planning events.
[Until the Covid-19 pandemic has been deemed and declared to have become fully endemic, at all gatherings we will follow scientifically-recommended best practices, based upon current local and regional health statistics, to maintain the health and safety of our attending members.]
Any person without good reason to do so who no-shows twice (fails to go to an event to which they said yes for an RSVP) without prior notice or post-event communication with the event organizer may be removed from the group. It takes considerable time and effort to plan some events and it's simply an inconsiderate thing to do.
Thank you, and your organizer and fellow group members look forward to meeting you soon!

Upcoming events (1)See all
- Volunteer Park Conservatory + Seattle Asian Art MuseumSeattle Asian Art Museum, Seattle, WA
It's free first Thursday at the Volunteer Park Conservatory and discounts from free to $5 entry are available at the Seattle Asian Art Museum, featuring an exhibit of Japanese prints and Tolousse-Lautrec. This will also be the first date in a long time that SAAM is open on a Thursday.
Here is some basic Conservatory visit information: https://www.volunteerparkconservatory.org/private-rentals-2 For those who haven't visited, it's a chance to step into and enjoy a sampler of jungle, desert and more within a compact space filled with a large variety of plant life, usually including orchids.
For SAAM, in addition to their permanent collection, this is the current featured exhibit: https://www.seattleartmuseum.org/exhibitions/renegade If you'd like to, you can obtain tickets now free via your library system or with a Gold Card many of us have, for $5. I have a pass via KCLS. (This is not a normal free day for SAAM.) See the 4th, Both Museums section for ways to obtain discounted tickets: www.seattleartmuseum.org/visit/discount-access-programs
If weather is conducive, we could take a walk through Volunteer Park following the museum visit too.
Let's meet in front of the Conservatory and go there first, then just down the park drive to SAAM. Neither venue is large and end time is only an estimate. Both public transportation and parking are available for these locations.
