This is a non-profit group, suggested for people 30+ yrs. (most of our members are in their 40s and 50s with some in their 60s and 30s) who find that their friends are presently busy with other obligations, OR they would like more / new people to attend activities with, OR they are new to the area and would like to meet new people to do things with. The events are centered around common interests !
Events are planned by the organizer - see the CALENDAR tab. They occur in Burlington (live bands, rib dinners, apps specials, Sound Of Music and Ribfest festivals, movies, fundraisers, beach volleyball, etc.), Oakville (spaghetti dinner, hikes, movies, etc.), Waterdown (Streetsfest and ribfest), stateside (shows at Fallsview, Yuk Yuks, weekend getaways), Toronto (Blue Jays), and other cities - depending on suggestions / interests!
Events are also planned by YOU, the member, with a suggestion, and if there's an interest from the members!
We have also very proudly been part of fundraising - $500 to Phoenix Place, $500 to SAVIS of Halton, $250 to one of our members in financial distress after a serious medical condition, $1275 to FOOD4KIDS, and $137 to Carpenters' Hospice.
All funds collected go directly back to YOU the members, towards PERKS, lowering costs of events, hosting anniversary celebrations, after paying for supplies (sports equipment, office supplies, etc.) or costs (Meetup website fee, rentals, etc.)
I and the rest of the members look forward to meeting you!
