What we're about

This is a group for women 45 and up who are interested in making new friends, trying new things (big or small), and are looking to have fun and enjoy life! We could meet for a movie, take a cooking class, go to an interesting lecture, play games, go to lunch or dinner, have varied themed meetings. Looking forward to meeting you and trying new things together in Manhattan!

Zoom (from your home) Book Club Night 1 - St. Ivo

Online event

I will provide a link closer to the date! Install Zoom.us on the largest device you own (it is free to join a meeting). For our 22nd book, we will discuss "St. Ivo" by Joanna Hershon. It’s the end of summer when we meet Sarah, the end of summer and the middle of her life, the middle of her career (she hopes it’s not the end), the middle of her marriage (recently repaired). And despite the years that have passed since she last saw her daughter, she is still very much in the middle of figuring out what happened to Leda, what role she played, and how she will let that loss affect the rest of her life. Enter a mysterious stranger on a train, an older man taking the subway to Brooklyn who sees right into her. Then a mugging, her phone stolen, and with it any last connection to Leda. And then an invitation, friends from the past and a weekend in the country with their new, unexpected baby. Over the course of three hot September days, the two couples try to reconnect. Events that have been set in motion, circumstances and feelings kept hidden, rise to the surface, forcing each to ask not just how they ended up where they are, but how they ended up who they are. Unwinding like a suspense novel, Joanna Hershon's St. Ivo is a powerful investigation into the meaning of choice and family, whether we ever know the people closest to us, and how, when someone goes missing from our lives, we can ever let them go. ************************************************************************** From 7:30 pm - 7:40 pm we will make sure that everyone is set up and can see/hear. We will officially start the meeting at 7:40 pm. Laura Schindelman[masked]

Social Action (Zoom) - I Support The Girls

Online event

I will post a link to this event and send it in an email as the date gets closer. This is our 2nd Social Action Event! We will be discussing, "I Support The Girls," an organization that helps provide bras and menstrual hygiene products to girls and women who are experiencing homelessness. https://isupportthegirls.org/ For our social action kick-off meeting, we discussed "Love For The Elderly," an organization that gives hand-written letters that volunteers like YOU or your kids/grandkids have written and mailed to them, to seniors in nursing homes. Please check out their website. It's so easy to write and mail an uplifting letter - you can make everything up if you have to - and it will make someone so happy! https://lovefortheelderly.org/letters Thank you! Laura Schindelman
