Description:Green Earth Singles is a nonprofit corporation whose sole purpose is to publish the Green Earth Singles newsletter as a way of extending invitations to single adults to privately sponsored outdoor events and social gatherings. Individuals volunteer as officers and directors of this corporation, which has no "members" or dues and simply charges enough for subscriptions to the newsletter to cover actual expenses. There is no "group" political philosophy or involvement in community issues. Every host/hostess reserves the right to restrict attendance by whatever criteria he/she may elect. Guests attend understanding that each participant is responsible for his/her own conduct and safety. The theme of GES is congenial enjoyment of a wide variety of social and recreational activities. GES provides an easy way to make lasting friends from among people of diverse interests. The on-going vitality of GES is due to its continuing ability to attract good-hearted, responsible people.

ELIGIBILITY: Most subscribers are over age 55 and enjoy participating in social activities with other single adults and couples; contribute their share towards food, beverages, transportation, preparation and clean-up for each event; understand the importance of a "no hustle, no hassle" environment where everyone is assured of an opportunity to join in the activities without pressure or harassment. Drugs and excessive drinking are discouraged.

FEES: $15 per year for newsletter subscription.
Programs:Meet-up group: GES 55+ Social Club
