welcome to the boston chapter
CALLING WOMEN 50+ IN THE GREATER BOSTON AREA.
During this critical period of time as we struggle with corona virus impacts, we are at risk of becoming particularly isolated. We are missing our activities and busy social calendars. Please know that we are here for you! There are many ways we can keep ourselves from feeling alone and confused. Most of our Peer Groups and a number of our Special Interest Groups are meeting virtually. We have begun new forums for sharing and laughing together such as our coffee and cocktail hours. Please look at our calendar and join us!!

THE TRANSITION NETWORK INVITES YOU TO JOIN US!
If 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 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.
Diverse programs and workshops of interest are offered periodically. (Authors/speakers, Women in Transition, Decluttering, Retirement Topics)

Food Tour in the North End of Boston
On Saturday, June 1, a dozen TTN members enjoyed an incredibly fun and educational Food Tour in the North End of Boston. The many small shops were full of color and character, most family owned spanning several generations. The shop keepers were enthusiastic, friendly and authentic. We felt like we were spending a day in Italy, exploring down alleyways and small stairways to basements where fresh bread was baking. We learned so much about what to look for, healthiest food choices, best restaurants, while all the while tasted astonishing differences between simple natural foods and those we are accustomed to in our big supermarkets.Read more...
