What we’re about

WELCOME and Thank you for visiting this site and if you are here, it is most likely that you are looking to meet other age 55+, active, singe adults!

My name is Laura Kay House and I started this Meet-up in 2006. It was the first Meet-up in the Triangle for those age 55+ and one of the first Meet-ups in their organization for this unique age group. I began this Meet-up to see if there was a need for this type of organization in the Triangle area for those age 55+ (which there was!) and as a prerequisite to beginning my business.

In November of 2007, I began a full time business and membership organization called Silver Connections. Located in the NC Triangle area and providing unique socializing opportunities through local events and travel for those active, single adults, age 55 "and better!" I have kept the Meet-up over the years, but it is no longer active. I do have the site available for anyone who may be interested in learning about Silver Connections.

Silver Connections offers numerous events every month for you to choose from such as dining, theater, museum visits, movies, seminars, member mingles, golf group, supper club, book club, coffees, new member socials, sporting events, symphony, wine tastings, food tours, dancing, cooking lessons, music and much more! Travel is also offered as an option to members, both international and U.S. Personal service and a strong community are also top priorities! We are not a dating service, but a way to bring individuals with similar experiences and circumstances together to make new friends in a safe, pressure-free and fun environment.

You may click on the Silver Connections website link below and please take a few minutes to look over all the accessible pages on our website as this will give you an initial introduction to our group and answer any preliminary questions you may have. There are examples there of the type of past events we have enjoyed in the past, a FAQ page, our yearly membership fee, testimonials and awards, travel information and much more!

I also run a travel business (since 2016) for those age 55+, active adults.

Silver Connections has been an established business for over 15 years and has provided a wonderful avenue for many to meet new friends and enjoy socializing in the NC Triangle through all of our activities.

Thank you and I look forward to meeting you!
