Social Sisterhood

Morgan Hill, CA

Social Sisterhood

Welcome to Social Sisterhood.


Our Mission


Our mission is to provide a place for women to meet for fun and friendship at public events in a collaborative atmosphere. Currently, our active members are mostly over 55.


I believe a social group is an alliance of the members. It can thrive only through participation and I will do my best to make participation as easy as possible. As empowered members, you will be able to help form a varied line up of events that interest you. Participation will inform hosts as to what interests the membership so that we can hone the group to our needs.


Membership Requirements


In keeping with our mission, please


  • tell us your true name, 
  • upload a photo of yourself


If you are unwilling to meet these requirements, please do not request membership. If you don't know how to upload a photo, an organizer will help you.


Covid Rules of the Road


We are now in a new phase of the Covid-19 pandemic. Some of us have been vaccinated; some of us plan to be vaccinated; and some of us will elect not to be vaccinated. Each of us has to determine our personal level of risk when it comes to socializing. The purpose of this section is to openly communicate the "rules of the road" for hosting and attending events in this group.


Member hosts will determine whether attendees need to be vaccinated or not. Proof of vaccine should be summitted to the group organizer. Once submitted, you will not be asked to provide proof again to attend events unless the conditions for vaccination are updated by the CDC. Guests of members must meet these requirements, also.


Participation


By RSVP'ing "Yes" to an event, your attendance is basic courtesy barring an emergency. Letting your host know if something comes up at the last minute will surely be appreciated. Although there are times it can't be avoided, repeatedly dropping off an event on the day of the event for which you've signed up doesn't work for hosts and other members counting on you to help make events successful.

As with all social organizations, we are interdependent. Therefore, the usual courtesies apply. Further, this is a social group – it is not a business networking group or an opportunity to promote your business or sell goods or services to the membership.

** As of this edit, we are experiencing members reserving a spot and dropping out within 24 hours of the actual event. This is unfair to members on the wait list. In the future, members with a history of being an unreliable attendee will be moved to the wait list if one forms for the event. After all other members are moved up, you will be moved to the attending list if there is room. If there is a financial obligation associated with the event, payment will be required in advance. You may pay the host or the organizer by check or using a payment processor of the host's/organizer's choice in order to reserve a spot. If a payment processor is used, the bill will include processing fees.



Guests 


Women guests are welcome to attend events with a member. If not stated explicitly, events are for women only.

Periodically, an organizer may schedule a family event where spouses or children are included in which case feel free to bring them making sure to indicate the number of "guests" that will accompany you.

Guests must meet the same Covid vaccination rules mentioned above..


Dues


Dues will be billed after a 30-day trial for new members at the rate of $1.00 per month in a single non-refundable payment. Dues will be prorated to end in October when all members will pay dues for the upcoming year at a $12 per year rate. I will pay the Meetup fees out of the dues collected. Any remaining money will be used for the benefit of the members. The accounting will be made available to the membership when dues collection begins.

So there you have it. Join us. Once you join, you can start posting events you want to share with others and go to others' events. I hope to see you soon!

50's Plus Active Singles Community

San Luis Obispo, CA

50's Plus Active Singles Community

This group is dedicated to those individuals who are single 50 years old or older. This is not a dating site.  We are a community group and relationships have developed organically via this group. Some of these relationships turned into long-term relationships or marriage.  It is important to us that they remain part of our family and are able to continue to attend our events. Our basic goal is to join forces to get out and about, meet new friends, attend social events, share our lives and hopefully make an impact on our community. The concept that created this group was based on those individuals who are alone wanting to get out and spend time with others without worrying about the strain or craziness of dating, courting or seeking a long-term mate. We want to get out and have fun, make new friends, be active and just be ourselves. Also, we are NOT to discuss politics; this group is not the place.

Our vision is to create a network of people who care about people. We are positive adults who love to socialize, interact and impact others and are seeking like-minded individuals who want to get out and have some fun support the needs of one another. If you have any ideas for an event, the organizers welcome them.  

We do ask for a small contribution of $5.00 annually, this can be paid online or to one of the organizers ( Sharon or Jim) by check or cash within your 30-day trial period. These dues cover the cost of the website, support our team and our members for special events and at times funds for individual needs.

Be sure to check out our "Pages" for specific information about our group!

Mensa / San Francisco Region

San Francisco, CA

Mensa / San Francisco Region

This MeetUp provides a dynamic way for members of San Francisco Regional Mensa to get the latest on Mensa events in the Bay Area and to more easily host their own Mensa events. The idea is that by eliminating the very long lead time now necessary to post things to the Intelligencer, we will have more, and more varied, events on the calendar.

You MUST be a *current* member of Mensa to join this group. When you click "Join Us" (above right), please include your full name AND your Mensa membership number so that we can verify your membership.

If you'd like to become a member of Mensa, please go to the SFRM website, http://www.sfmensa.org/, to find out how to qualify, or to locate a testing session near you. In the meantime, you can join us in our San Francisco Mensa Friends Meetup where we have events open to non-members.

Organizers and Event Organizers can post events directly to our Meetup site, but Meetup no longer allows non-organizers to post events directly.

If you are a member of our Meetup group, but not an organizer, and you wish to have an event posted, click on "Suggest a new Meetup", or send an email to membership@sfmensa.org.  Be sure and be specific as to what the event is, including a full description, date, time, and location.  If you'd like the event to recur on a regular basis (e.g., 3rd Wednesday of the month), be sure to specify that as well.

We hope to see you soon!

Lady Bugs On The Go!

Turlock, CA

Lady Bugs On The Go!

This is a Women's Group that is tired of living in the rut from day to day.....
A group who wants to come out and play and explore and learn all the valuable insights that we can share and learn from one another. ...

This is a group that wants to go go go and check all the boxes off on their bucket lists. ..(question #3)

What I want is a group that can come together and share. ..teach one another and learn from each other. ... for instance I don't know how to crochet and I've always wanted to learn...and maybe there are things you want to learn...??? (Question #1 &2)

Throw in an adventure or two and we have a dynamic group ....no I'm not going to skydive....(sorry....I'm not that adventuresome-ha ha)

In order to become a member you will have to answer 5 questions along with a current picture? And then I will contact you and we will meet ( I have found coffee to be the best)  so that you can meet me and I can meet you. Its very casual and low key--do not be nervous.  I want you to see that I am just as normal as you and having you know at least one person in my meetup (me) makes it easier for you to sign up and go to other events/activities with the group.  

 This is not a watch from the sidelines club--this is a participation club--I want to know you and you to know me and all of my members get to know you too.    

 I do not want a club with 100,  200 even 1,000 members that I do not know ....so having a large number of members is not the goal of this club....its learning, teaching, going, doing, helping and making lots and lots of friendships

To be active in the club you will have to go to 1 event/activity every 3 months (this is the minimum required events/activities to stay active in the club--but you can go to as many events/activities as you want)  That is only 4 events/activities a year to stay active.  And compared to a lot of other meetup groups this club is very very active with lots and lots of activities/events and variety.

If you become inactive; then you run the risk of being removed from the club......so just sign up for the events/activities that interest you--I do not expect you to go to all events/activities just the ones that interest you.  And if nothing interests you-then don't be shy-suggest one....

Also just as important if you sign up for an event/activity and cannot go---it is only a courtesy to message or text me that you will be unable to make it.  Failure to let me know that you are not coming for an event that you signed up is considered a no-show...... I usually send an email reminding you one to two days before any event/activity so there is no reason not to let me know you are not coming.   

Myself and others will be looking for you and wondering where you are. Also, some events require reservations and the businesses we have booked with are expecting a certain number of people. Plus no one likes to be stood up. 3 No Shows will result in termination from the club membership.

Dues are $10 for whatever month you decide to join the club...so if you join in August the dues will still be $10  for the remainder of the current year.  And then when January comes around again dues will be $10 for the whole year--Jan thru Dec. 

If this is an issue for you then you can wait to join in January and only pay $10 for the whole year.   I am in two other clubs (not meetup) and this is the way they do it...and its easier to keep tabs on the dues.....everyone pays $10 in January for the whole year. If you come in half way then you still pay the $10 for the remainder of the year.

 I will send you a friendly reminder that your dues are due.  Failure to pay the yearly $10 club dues means you will be automatically dropped from the club and no longer wish to be a member.

 The dues will be used to pay the $14.99 monthly fee that Meetup charges and any excess will go back into the club to be used on activities/events, get togethers, or supplies needed by the membership.  

When you have gone to 10 events/activities--you will be awarded a LadyBug pin.  Activities/ events are scheduled so that there are free events and paid events--you choose what you want to sign up for.

So I became the first LadyBug when I traveled to Niagara Falls by myself. (yes it was scary but my friend that I was planning on going with backed out--and at that time you lost your airline miles if you didn't use them in a year (Southwest Airlines)--so I bravely (and timidly) decided I was going to go even if it meant I had to do it alone. My first ever solo trip---(yikes)

I did not know a soul--but I called home every night so that my poor worried Mother could sleep at night knowing no one had accosted me----it was scary; but exciting at the same time.

Anyway I had walked over to the Canada side to visit the duty free shop. I had bought some items and was at the checkout when the cashier noticed a ladybug on my arm. I kinda jumped (anything with bug in it would have gotten a reaction out of me--ha ha) Oh no she reassured me--a ladybug is a sign of good luck.

Hmmmm so I gently took the ladybug on my arm to an outside area and let it fly fly fly away. (After I paid for my items of course)

I got lost numerous times; I got three tickets on the bridge (I got out of it because after I got the tickets mailed to me-- I explained that the bridge toll guy wouldn't tell me what I was doing wrong--just get moving...go go go---and I ended up not having to pay) and remember that Canada duty free shop--well I was a tourist (all by my lonely) taking pictures as I walked across the bridge toward the US side and all of a sudden here come 3 men wanting to confiscate my camera--I was jeopardizing security by taking pictures of the US bldg--what??? --so much for good luck from the lady bug on my arm--I thought they were going to throw me in jail.....????

10 days later when I returned home safely and in one piece--I remember falling backwards in my bed and thinking to myself--I made it-- and all by myself! That was a huge accomplishment for me--I had never gone on a vacation ever by myself before.

But I got to thinking that while I was touring Niagara Falls I was a Lady and I sure bugged the he$$ out of everyone I met--hence the name: LADYBUGS ON THE GO!!!!

Look forward to meeting you and helping you to create and accomplish your dreams.....
