Clubs and social organisations are great ways to make new friends and maintain an active and purposeful lifestyle. Throughout our life we form and participate in groups for our social and intellectual and even spiritual benefit, whether it’s friendship groups and peer groups at school, sporting groups on weekends, social clubs, political or charity organisations… even our own family is a group!

At starts at 60, we love learning about some of the interesting groups and networks our readers belong to. We even like to form our own with coffee meet-ups to help people connect.

We would love to know: which groups or organisations are you a part of? How long have you been a member? Please let us know in the comments below.

Starts at 60 Writers

The Starts at 60 writers team seek out interesting topics and write them especially for you.

  1. We moved to a new State, and finally worked out that to make friends we had to get out “there’ and help ourselves.
    So three years ago we arrived at a meeting of the Burnie Field Naturalist club (tassie). We struck gold!
    We were welcomed, started doing the Monthly outings, joined their monthly Social Club outings and now have
    made many wonderful friends. All it takes is the courage to turn up and say “Hello”. A decision we have never regretted.

  2. I joined the Ulysses Motorcycle Club when I retired. Have made some lifetime friends from all over Australia. Members come from all walks of life but have one thing in common., the love of motorcycles and riding!

  3. I have only been a member of Toastmasters (Sandbelt, Beaumaris, VIC) since late last year but I wish I had joined earlier. Members are very welcoming and encourage new starters to stretch themselves in order to speak before an audience.
    There is no huge commitment, just twice a month – if you wish – and they are a fun group of people.

  4. i’m only 57 hahahaha but I play Rugby for College Rifles in Auckland, and am a member of Toastmasters…

  5. I volunteer for the RCAF 420Wing of Oshawa, Ontario. We have a great team, plan remembrance events, concerts, BBQs , speakers. aviation and military base celebrations, support the 2 local Air Cadets squadrons and work closely with the Ontario Regiment museum. All our events are open to the public and it gives me a chance to meet amazing people.

  6. Secretary of a branch of Normandy Veterans ,it is a privilege to know these men many whom gave their lives and did not return.
