What we're about

This group is a Social group of adults in Atlanta ages 35 and up that want to get out of the house, try new things and new places, and have a lot of fun while meeting other great people. This group welcomes everyone looking to expand their social and professional circles. We will hold different types of social events throughout the month designed to introduce you to friends in your age range.

Many folks just join a ton of meetup groups and actually never attend a meetup. Many don't attend due to fear of the unknown, anxiety, don't like showing up alone in a room full of new people.

We've all been there. The hardest part is getting in your car to go. I've had people tell me they stay in their cars for 10 minutes anxious to get out and walk into the meetup. But once they do, the realize it's not a big deal and everyone is there for the same reason - to make new friends. It's like anything else, if you don't take the first step, you might just miss out on the journey.

So if you are ready to attend your first Meetup - make 2016 the year for you to resolve and get out to make new friends. In over 8 years, I have seen friendships, marriages and new jobs all stem from meetup. It's a great social tool - but only if you use it!

Come join the fun!

Second Play of the Season - "Night Must Fall"

950 Forrest St

"Night Must Fall" by Emily Williams Directed by Shannon Eubanks The dark can be very seductive. Thrills, chills, twists and turns in a Halloween-perfect tale of suspense. We KNOW “whodunnit.” But who’s going to get it next?? Can ineffable charm exist with true evil? And can the good ever fall prey to that charm? This thriller will have you on the edge of your seat! Once again, we are able to offer our 35-up Members and their friends, $10 tickets to this second production of the Season! Normally tickets are $25 to $40 each, but this is a Fundraiser for the Roswell Lions Club and we are able to offer you a great deal! As this is the first dress rehearsal night, we get to see the show before anyone else in town. The Roswell Lions Club wishes to personally thank you for all your support attending these events. The money raised goes to support our many programs, headlined by our "Eyesight Roswell" program that ensures that all Roswell school students have eyeglasses for their studies. The doors to the theater seating open at 7:15 for a 7:30 pm performance start time. Our table will be set up for check-in starting at 6:15 pm. NOTE: The format is now different. It is NO LONGER open seating. You will have a seat assignment. Seating will be based on sign-up though we will always do our best to accommodate all in a good manner. Do Remember this is CASH ONLY! We hope to see you there!
