Hi Marilyn Lou, I have the same problem here, all the Redhaters are full and have been for 4 yrs. someone suggested for me to start my own group, don't want too, if the house ever sells am gone,
Here the Y is pricey for me, most of them are private owned senior price about $450,, some have membership that comes with there senior medical insurance program, but I don't have any medical coverage, and won't be able to until next year, if, am still here.
I have read some of the programs for CARP they sound pretty nice.
There seems to be several groups of PWP in and around Hamiton/toronto area,. All the ones around here have closed
I was at Pt. Stanly last year, with my cousin, (she lives in Aylmer, Ont) I understand allot has changed from when my grandfather u played with Guy Lombardo Orch.there. Grand father stopped traveling with the group just before they made it big in the states, So when Guy came into town Granfather would play with him locally,They have small Guy Lombardo musuem at Pt. Stanely, they have several pictures of my grandfather playing in the band, on display, it was nice to see that.
Their not much there at Ptl Stanely,, few shops and several restaurants. on nice day it would be nice trip, since you have to walk out in the weather to get from one shop to another., We went to all the shops, had lunch in about 3 hours taking our time.
I was thinking of going to the CARP BBQ but the weather is not promising and it is an early start too! have to see how I feel in the morning. I get the Hamilton CARP enewsletter but I am not sure if i am still a member and i see the event is limited to 50 members.
Might be risky busing up there without calling first MarilynLou,
Won't go to the YW's Fair today in the rain storm. Hope tomorrow to go to the CARP BBQ up on the 'mountain' tomorrow and meet some Hamilton members. Depends on the weather tho' since it is a good walk to the bus terminal to get an Upper Sherman bus. We'll see.
BTW, I know about the Red Hats. I even bought a red hat, but couldn't join in Mississauga because the different groups weren't taking any new members - too full. I should check Hamilton. It costs to belong, though and for all their excursions. I'm on a limited budget and waiting for a subsidized apt.
I used to belong to PWP in Mississauga years ago. Went to Winnipeg with them on a conference, a camping trip, dances, etc. I'm in Hamilton now and I have just joined the YWCA for Seniors. Monday went to the pool for water exercises. Been sooo long since I was in a pool that I was completely disoriented for a bit. Have to learn to swim all over again! And I was so into swimming before with my NAUI skin diving certificate and all.
The YW has trips listed on their bulletin board if I can afford to galivant around. One interesting one is a train trip to Port Stanley for touristing and shopping. Many years ago I was to different towns around there including Port Stanley.
Also Hamilton CARP is holding a BBQ. I can get their by bus.
Hi I have heard of Redhatters, been to several meetings with my cousin in Aylmer when I was visiting. Love it, here in Fort Wayne, its died zone for singles. Meetup for the most part is force on women with young children PWP, O, Working with my church to start some thing for the whole community, we have space and talents.resources. Over all Fort Wayne is geared to the family, live. PWP folded here about 10 yrs. I was delighted to speak with and view PWP Toronto, sounds great and so many chapters too. How lucky.. ,
Hi, Marilyn I have attended PWP in Toronto. Many chapters are located in various areas. You may want to try meetup.com. You can find all sorts of activities, events, movie/theatre groups to join all according to your personal preference. Just enter your interest. Meetups are everywhere - worldwide. And, Redhatters (women). Have you heard of them?
Have any of you attended Parents without Partners group in Toronto
this group has activites going on all the time, the only requirement now a parent or been parent, your children grown its ok. Its international group, I seen were there's 4 large groups around the Toronto area. About 14 yrs. ago I was member here in Indy. even though my daughters are all grown, I am still a parent without a partner. We went on camping trips, joined other dance clubs, went on weekend social events etc. When I was searching last week for other reasons on this subject. I notice here in Ft. Wayne, none, Indy, had 5 groups, North Ohio had 4, London Ont. had several but the most active was Toronto and surrounding area's..And there is no age limit, some thing to check into if your singe and in the Toronto area.. There social event schedule was filled.. Just my luck I live were theirs none..
Does anyone still subscribe to magazines? Home delivery is nice. Other than Macleans, I find them mostly all ads in the fashion magazines but I realize it depends on ones interest. Does Readers Digest exist? Comments?
well it depends on how active, interesting and yes, what she looks like! i have an 80-year old friend (that's what she claims although looks 15 years younger) but all she's interested in is talk and to be chauffeured around!
Not much activity on social networks for older folk these days - little emailing either - people seem to want "new' all the time and those that remain then also eventually give up - like me!
