Your yearly membership provides you with...
A Personal Meeting
The opportunity for you and the owner to meet and discuss all aspects of Silver Connections membership and for you to ask any questions that you may have. This is the time for you to learn all about the group!
A time can be scheduled for this meeting that is convenient for you, at a local coffee shop or bookstore cafe.' A packet of information about Silver Connections is also given to you at the meeting. If you decide to join Silver Connections, the owner has already met you and you have met her. When you arrive at your first event, you will not be a stranger walking in the door!
Local Event Opportunities
You are able to choose from completely planned local events every month. It gives you the opportunity to experience a new restaurant, see a theater production, attend a symphony performance, enjoy a local museum, a holiday party.... and much more!
There is a sense of security provided to members to know that the owner has talked with every potential member before joining.
Certain pages of the Silver Connections website require a member Username and Password. This is to protect our member's privacy as security and safety are important to us.
You also have the opportunity, if you wish, to travel with the group. You get to know other members at our events which makes traveling together even more fun! Silver Connections has formed partnerships with several travel agencies. There is no pressure to travel and you can pick and choose what trips you may want to go on.
Being a part of a strong and caring community is a big part of Silver Connections. Birthdays, member news, and other life events are recognized.
You are not just a number in a large and impersonal group, but an individual whose membership is valued.
