"There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.
~ Margaret J. Wheatley
Do you ever want to just have a place you can go where you could meet new people and catch up with friends without having to do all the planning and coordination? A place where you can just hang out, mingle, have a few laughs and find some new friends or meet up with old friends? What if you're new to town and don't know where to go to meet people to start building your social network? Maybe you've recently gone through a major life transition and your daily routine or lifestyle has completely changed.
Social Tinkering has your back my friend. Gather Together is our primary ongoing meetup where anyone in our community can come hang out and build their social network. We offer this meetup once a month so that you have a chance to come check us out and see if you'd like to hang with us. Gather Together is a facilitated event where we introduce what Social Tinkering is, encourage interactions between guests through fun icebreakers, and then give you time to mingle and see if you can find someone you might like to strike up a friendship with. We also introduce our smaller group opportunities during this event so that you can decide if there is another meetup you might want to join in on where the deeper connections happen.
Join us at one of our online meetups and/or in person as we gather together for fun and memorable times. Meetups will provide time to meet and interact with others. This is primarily for adults, but families and children are very welcome.
*Due to COVID-19, we will be following the state of Vermont's and the CDC's guidance on social gatherings. If you are not vaccinated, including children, you are required to wear a mask to our events. Feel free to wear one even if you are vaccinated if it makes you more comfortable coming out to meet folks. We respect that everyone has difference comfort levels socializing right now and want everyone to be and feel safe.
*Social Tinkering is about more than simply finding friends. Read about our Vision and Mission and see our guidelines for respecting diversity so we can offer safe spaces and successful events for everyone.
