Meet & Mingle Question

Hi all and Happy Holidays!
I just joined here although I've lived on STT for about 14 years now. I was wondering if there were any local gatherings besides things like Toastmasters where people can meet, mingle, have fun, and perhaps network? I don't get the Daily News and wondered if there were any place to find out about local get-togethers, gatherings, etc. open to the public where all might be welcome. Perhaps also where I might find info on stuff like the local Rotary East club and things like that. Any suggestions would be appreciated. I would like to wish all a Happy New Year too :o)
Irene and I have lived here for 2 years, and are wondering some of the same things. One great get-together forum is/are the VINow gatherings! Those of us on the board get together for drinks and/or food about once every two months, and Islander has been kind enough to moderate the organization of the gathering. The groups have been very eclectic, and delightful. Met some great folks, and even went sailing with some (Karibe and Chuck!). Since we didn't have a "formal" get-together in December, perhaps there'll be a movement for one in January!? What do you think, Islander?
I appreciate your response. The gatherings sound great. About how many usually attend? Perhaps they might consider meeting up for some bowling or mini-golf or some such fun get-together activity? Happy New Year and hope to hear from you again soon.
The "Island Trader" is a good source of info about local gatherings such as the Rotary Club...but starting your own here on the board is even better! Haha!
Happy New Year Susie -
The size of the gatherings vary from about 6 to 20, and there are no limits to the ideas for activities, so if you were to suggest something, folks may pick up on it. So far there have been beach parties, beach cleanings, drinks, lunches and dinners.
