New Ideas!!

Connecting.  One of the purposes of our group is to facilitate members’ connecting with other members.  To that end, in addition to meeting others at scheduled events, the Board of Directors encourages you to contact other members in Cordial Connections when you’d like to share a movie, a walk, a cup of coffee, a sporting event, etc., with another person.

We suggest your initial approach be a “soft” approach, as some persons find it rather unnerving to be asked out by a person they know only little or not at all.  In such cases, “No” seems the easiest and safest answer.

So give yourself a chance.

As a first step, you might first suggest meeting for coffee or a drink to find out what common interests you and the other person may share.

Carpooling 101.2  If you’re willing to drive occasionally when other members need a ride to an event, please call Carole Clement.  She’ll publish a list of drivers and phone numbers in the monthly newsletter.

1)  Drivers are under no obligation to attend events because others need a ride.

2)  Drivers are under no obligation to take passengers if they attend an event to which others need a ride.

3)  Drivers set the number of passengers they’re willing to drive.

4)  Drivers determine the pickup and drop-off time and location.

5) Drivers are under no obligation to wait for persons who don’t show up on time.
