WELCOME TO THE BOSTON CHAPTER 

CALLING WOMEN 50+ IN THE GREATER BOSTON AREA.

November Calendar Events


THE TRANSITION NETWORK INVITES YOU TO JOIN US!

‚ÄčIf you are interested in joining a dynamic group of women, making new friends, exploring new interests, please join us!

The Transition Network is a national non-profit organization for women 50+ who are interested in connecting with other women as they enter this next stage of their lives.   Whether you are transitioning into retirement, making a life change, starting a new career, or just interested in socializing, TTN provides numerous opportunities to meet smart, diverse, fun-loving women in a variety of settings.  Many wonderful friendships have developed. Boston Chapter offerings include:

Special Interest Groups (SIGS)

SIGS bring together women with common interests.  Existing groups include a Theater Buffs group, Book Club, Movie Goers, Community Volunteers, Sunday Brunch Diners, Mah Jongg Players, Travel Enthusiasts. Always looking for ideas, we will help get any new groups started.  Potential new groups include Crafting, Day Trippers, and Game Players.

There are three chapter-wide SIGS that are open to all members:  Community Volunteers, Theater Buffs, and Sunday Brunch. You can request addition to those email lists and come when you can!  Requests to join those groups or any others, please contact Joyce Blumenthal or Carol McKee.

Peer Groups (members only)

Peer groups consist of 6-12 women who meet regularly each month to engage in thought provoking and stimulating discussions on topics of their choosing.   Discussion topics range from those that are light-hearted and fun to others that help members to define and think through their futures.  These groups provide opportunities for connection, new friendships and mutually supportive exploration.

Social Events

Social gatherings, open to the entire Boston Chapter, are offered throughout the year.  Examples include trips to the Newport Mansions, Peabody Essex Museum, House Tours, Holiday Parties, Charles River Boat trip, Pizza & Gelato Outing, WaterFire in RI, Vermont Weekend Getaway, on and on.  

Programs

Diverse programs and workshops of interest are offered periodically. (Authors/speakers, Women in Transition, Decluttering, Retirement Topics)

Not sure if you want to join?

Go with a member and try one or two events to see how you like it.  Many social events, programs and SIGS are open to all.
