Hi Smedley! If I remember correctly, you're in the Chicago 'burbs right? I think it was you I talked to about VegFest this past summer. If you join the Naperville, Joliet, or Plainfield freecycle group (I don't remember which one. I belong to all 3) they have a Women's Social Group Meetup a couple times a month. They do fun things like going to the Apple Festival, board game nights, wine tasting, etc. The lady who came up with the idea lives in Bolingbrook and the group is women between the ages of 25 and 50 or 60. I've been eager to go but have always been busy on Meetup days.
