What we're about

Do you want to belong to a community of active people ages 50 and up who are open-minded and value inclusion and diversity? If so, PrimeTime may be the group for you! Our intention is to provide a wide range of activities from live music to dancing, hiking, intimate dinners and game nights to more esoteric events like book clubs or discussions about political, spiritual, or lifestyle topics, or giving back to the world with community service. We welcome you to join us as we explore the great city of Austin (and beyond) together to make this chapter of our lives PrimeTime!

PRIMETIME MISSION STATEMENT
PrimeTime is dedicated to building an active, inclusive, harmonious and supportive community of diverse people aged 50 and up. PrimeTime intends to provide numerous opportunities for our members to come together to nurture their minds, bodies, and spirits through service, education, and fun. Our hope is that this investment of time and energy will make it possible for our members to participate in events that foster new connections leading to lasting and meaningful friendships.

Upcoming events (5+)

Weekly signup for ATTENDEES 10/18 - 10/24 Small/intimate Outdoor events

PrimeTimers, we think it is time for us to begin to peek outside again. The Covid pandemic is still with us but we now know a little bit more about this virus and the numbers in the Austin area seem to be dropping or are at least staying steady. So are you interested in ATTENDING a small intimate outdoor gathering with 1, 2, 3, or 4 other PrimeTime members during the week listed? If so, just RSVP to this posting. These events can be of any kind as long as they are outdoors and a 6' social distance is being maintained. Walking, hiking, playing games, drinking coffee, having snacks, lunch, dinner or drinks, or just sharing the space and engaging in conversation are some examples of possible gatherings. The event host will be allowed to make any rules that they think would make themselves feel safe and those rules would be communicated to their invitees along with their invitation. Perhaps they would feel more comfortable if their invitees would not come inside their house to use their bathroom. Or maybe they would like that everybody should bring their own food or utensils. Or that everybody wears masks. The only rules that would be mandatory would that a 6' social distancing space be honored and that the event be held outdoors. Members who have signed up for this weekly posting and are invited to participate in one of the events that have been created are expressing an interest in this small outdoor gathering concept but would not be expected to accept all invitations that they might receive. Perhaps they don't like the type of event that is being proposed, or the host's rules, or don't want to travel so far from their homes, or the scheduling doesn't quite work for them. For whatever that reason might be, it is simply OK to say no to the offer. But if you do receive an invitation for one of these small outdoor gatherings and can't or don't want to accept the invitation that was given you, please be gracious in relaying your nonacceptance. I think some of you are already doing this and are having really positive experiences. This Covid thing will be around for a while but let's see if we can use this time to make some new or deeper friendships that we might not otherwise get to experience. I like the concept "Use everything for your advancement" so let's see if we can't turn this Covid thing around and have some fun at the same time. This post will be put on our calendar weekly for a two month trial period or until conditions change. If you sign up for this event, make sure that your settings will allow you to send and receive messages from other PrimeTime members. Signups are good for the week listed. Please don't participate if you have any of the Covid symptoms or have recently been in contact with a person who is known to have Covid.

These are the folks that want to be invited! Send them a private message and give them the details of your event. Remember up to a total of 5 people with social distancing parameters.
