​​​​Board Vacancies
We have 3 Board Members who will complete their terms at the end of this year. Two of them would like to run again and the third is "retiring" after years of positive contributions to our group. If you would like to run for a Board position let us know by submitting a short letter stating your intention to run. Please add a brief line or two about yourself and tell us why you would be an asset to our Board. Submit via e-mail or to a Board member and please come to our Board meeting on Thursday, November 30th at 5:30pm. Let's spend a few minutes together interacting about plans for the future of Women of 40Plus.


The application process closes on November 30th. The vote will be held at our regular meeting on Thursday, December 7.


Ditty Bags Update
The ditty bag project is a monthly commitment for 40Plus to provide bags of toiletries for the homeless women who participate in the shower program at St. Luke's Episcopal Church in Long Beach.  We appreciate all the travel-size toiletries you have brought and we thank you for participating in putting the bags together during our game night meetings at the end of each month.  

​​​​​​​​​​The group meets every Thursday from 6 pm to 8 pm at:

St. Gregory's Episcopal Church
6201 East Willow Street, Long Beach , CA 90815

​​There are no dues for attending the meetings however a donation of $3 per person is requested to cover the cost of the room rental and support the group.

New attendees are always welcome and the donation isn't mandatory. Socializing is from 6:00pm to 6:30pm and the discussion format is from 6:30pm to 8:00pm. After the meeting many ladies go to a local eatery, such as Hof's Hut to have a cup of coffee and chat some more.

We do many things outside the Thursday night meetings. Please join us for some of our special events.

You'll have a great time with us and make some great friendships!

Recent Past Meetings:

​November 2nd - Join Kathy and Linda for a craft project.  They were going to do a fall leaf project, but no fall leaves, so it will be a surprise.

November 9th -  Join Maureen and an appropriate topic for this time of year (or anytime for that matter) as we discuss the "Power of Gratitude".

November 16th - Our Annual Thanksgiving Potluck. We will provide Turkey, Ham and drinks.  Bring a side dish to share. Don't forget! We can't be without your stuffing, yams, salads and desserts. This is also the evening we select the names from the Long Beach Women's Shelter gift list.  This is always a fun activity and helps us to give back to our community.  Gift wrapping night will be Thursday, December 7th.

November 23rd - No meeting tonight. Happy Thanksgiving!

November 30th -Game Night and packing ditty bags for the womens' homeless shower program. Thanks to all who have donated items over the last few months.  Keep them coming!​

You missed a lot of fun if you missed any of the Thursday meetings.
