Welcome to Silver Connections!
For the health of our Silver Connections members, our last event was on March 8th prior to the North Carolina stay at home order. Virtual events (via Zoom) have been offered every week throughout the last four months such as "Coffee Chats", "Happy Hours", Netflix and Hulu Discussions, Book Club, Fitness Classes, "Wine and Cheese Parties" and more!
With the beginning of Phase 2, our "in person" events began again at the end of June. All outside at this time (outdoor dining, picnics, hiking/walking, book clubs, golf, etc.) with several dates of the same event to allow for smaller groups attending and social distancing in place. This virus is unfortunately going to be with us for many months to come, until there is a treatment or vaccine. It is the wish of many to learn to live again and navigate within the boundaries of this situation. Baby steps as the group begins to gather again, in small groups, with safety and health as top priorities. In addition, we continue to offer the on-line (virtual) gatherings as well.
Meetings for those who may be interested in joining Silver Connections are also being scheduled now to learn more about our organization, recieve a packet of information and ask any questions. These no pressure meetings are scheduled at a coffee shop, again outside on a patio with masks and distance in place.
Please feel free to contact us to learn more!
SILVER CONNECTIONS is the Premier Socializing Group for those "55 and better!" in the Triangle area of North Carolina. We have been in business for almost 13 years and are committed to providing unique events and travel for those single, age 55+, active adults.
Local activities, international and domestic trips, new friends, community, personal service, quality members, laughter and fun!
Don't let the word "Silver" fool you! Our members are a group of active adults and the word "senior" does not apply. Age truly is just a number! We have members who range in age from 55-59, many members age 60-69 and also members who are active in their 70s. Our membership is made up of both single men and women, looking to meet new friends, participate in events and enjoy an active social life!
Since we are not a matchmaking or dating service, there is never any pressure at our events. You never have to feel uncomfortable or that the goal is finding a date.
Silver Connections is also not a large, impersonal group, but a social community where members get to know each other at our events. Many life long friendships have been made in our group! We don't plan events where you walk in the door and no one greets you or you are just a number in a noisy room with many others. We are welcoming and inclusive!
Personal service is always a top priority. The owner offers a complimentary meeting over coffee to meet each potential member, offer a packet of information and answer any questions you may have. If you decide to join, you are not just a number coming through the door at your first event.
Our members live in Raleigh, Wake Forest, Cary, Apex, Morrisvillle, Knightdale, Louisburg, Wendell, Holly Springs, Garner, Fuquay Varina, Clayton, Durham, Chapel Hill, Pittsboro and other areas throughout the Triangle.
Every detail of our professionally planned events are organized for you, so all you need to do is pick what events every month you would like to attend (and there are alot to choose from!) and ENJOY! You may choose to attend as many or as few as you would like. Our events are also planned with you in mind - location, cost, convenience and personal service are all top priorities.
To view just a small example of some of the events our members have enjoyed in the past (and many continue to be on our calendar!), please go to the "Past Events" page on the left sidebar.
Enjoy attending unique events in the Triangle, wonderful travel opportunities and making new friends
.....Come Join The FUN!
Sent from a former member who moved out of state recently to live closer to his family:
"I just wanted to drop you a note and tell you how much I appreciated the chance to be part of Silver Connections. I have never had a more positive experience and just plain fun with the great people I met in your organization. There is nothing like it here and I wish I could find it again. I cherish the friendships I formed in the group and the great time on all of your outings. Again, thanks for allowing me to be a small part of your adventure."
