What we're about

This group is for Minnesota middle aged lesbians who are over age 45 and under age 65. This group has been active for 4 years with one or two socials planned each month. Check out the past events tab to see the variety of our activities.  All new attendees are warmly welcomed at their first social event. Please provide event leaders the courtesy of removing your RSVP online if you aren't able to attend something you signed up for. Membership includes a 2 week free trial period and is then $5.00 per year (the cost of our web page).  If you do not go online to your profile page and pay dues after the trial period ends you will be dropped from membership. (Note: the meetup system does not send you a dues reminder.)
All activities have a minimum of 5 members in order to run. The RSVP totals will be checked the day before each event and a cancellation notice will be sent out if there are less than 5 signed up. Therefore, don't be shy about being the 1st or 2nd to RSVP. You won't be the only one there. Early signups build interest in the activity.  If a limited event fills up, you may sign up on the waiting list. 
Members are encourage to upload photos after each event as long as the privacy of other members is respected and faces are not showing.

Walk around Lake Nokomis

4860 E Lake Nokomis Pkwy

„Make your heart like a lake with a calm, still surface and great depths of kindness.“
Lao Tzu

Let’s continue our series of ‚Walks Around The Lake‘, we had started last winter.
Join our group for another walk around one of the gorgeous lakes in the Twin Cities: Lake Nokomis - a great place to get away without leaving the cities.
The pedestrian trail around the lake is 2.7 miles long. It’s paved and almost completely flat.
This walk will be led by Gundula.
Our group will meet at the north end of Lake Nokomis by the parking lot located at 4860 E Lake Nokomis Pkwy (kayak launch in summer - see below picture ).
Parking is free.
Please be on time.
For our outdoor events, no pets unless the event leader writes they are welcome in the posting.
Keep an eye on this posting as the date or time may change due to weather conditions. All our meetups have a minimum of 5 in order to run.

J-Pride 40+ Social at Sister's Sludge

3746 23rd Ave S

This coffee social at Sisters' Sludge Cafe and Wine Bar is for GLBT people of the Jewish faith who are over age 40. It is organized by J-Pride, a program of Jewish Family and Children's Service (JFCF) of Mpls. Once a month they host a coffee social for queer Jewish folks but it has mostly been attended by younger people. Our member Betty made a special request to the J-Pride coordinator asking for an event for older folks. And within a very short time, the wonderful JFCF coordinator, Isaac, got this set up. This is their first J-Pride 40+ social, so let’s show some support! If you are a Jewish member of our Lesbian 50ish meetup, please RSVP on our group's event page and add plus 1 if you are bringing a friend. Our member Betty will be there as our group hostess to greet you. Look for Betty at a table with a pink tablecloth. This event is open to all over 40 Jewish gay, lesbian & queer folks in MN. So please help spread the word to others you know. There is a parking lot behind the café and also parking on neighborhood streets.
Check out the coffee and lunch menu for Sister’s Sludge at: https://sistersludgecoffeecafe.com/
If you have any questions or want to be on the J-pride email list, please contact Isaac at [masked]
This is an indoor event. Masks are respected but not required.

European Christmas Market

Union Depot

Let's explore the European Christmas Market located on the East Plaza of the historic Union Depot in downtown Saint Paul. The market is a traditional open-air holiday market based on the open-air markets of Germany which start during Advent and run up till Christmas.

There will be handmade European crafts and goods produced by local vendors as well as European and holiday inspired food. The market is a public admission-free event.

Where to meet: look for Liz and Gundula INSIDE the foyer of the Union Depot by the Christmas trees (see pictures below). We will walk to the market together.
The Union Depot has a beautiful marble interior to explore also if you have never visited inside.

Downtown St. Paul has free meters on Sundays and there are also parking lots nearby.
Pets are not allowed at the Christmas Market.

Let’s warm up afterwards inside the Union Depot with some hot chocolate and xmas cookies. Liz will supply the hot chocolate and cookies, but we’ll all supply the Christmas cheer.
