Welcome to Silver Connections!
With the beginning of Phase 2 in North Carolina, our "in person" events began again in June after staying home and isolating for three months.
Dining (brunch, lunch and dinner), picnics, coffees, hiking/walking groups, wine tastings, book clubs, supper clubs, golf, museum outings, private tours and more. Weather permitting, we are outside or with colder temperatures, added heating systems in place. There are several dates of the same event to allow for smaller groups attending, sanitizing, masks and social distancing. It is the wish of many to learn to navigate within the boundaries of this situation and not be isolated, with safety and health as top priorities.
We are excited about the vaccine and as it becomes more available, we will be adding more events every month.
In addition, we offer on-line (virtual) weekly Happy Hour/Member Mingles, Book Clubs, Symphony and History Museum online events, Game Nights, Classes, monthly Netflix or Prime Movie Discussions and more.
If you may be interested in learning more about Silver Connections, please let us know and we can send you a packet of information via mail. Once you have the opportunity to look over that, then we can plan a meeting for you to meet the owner, learn more and ask any questions. These no pressure meetings are scheduled at a coffee shop, on a patio outside with masks and distance in place or on Zoom or Skype.
Our 2021 events are being posted now with some wonderful ones to enjoy!
Please feel free to contact us to schedule a meeting and 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."
