|Who We Are|
Welcome to our web site. We are so glad you stopped by and hope you will spend some time here learning about our great group and our fun activities and events.
Green Earth Singles subscribers consists largely of a group of single adults who are mostly over age 50, and although based in the Santa Cruz, California area, we welcome people from Monterey and San Benito counties as well as the Bay Area.
Green Earth Singles was started in 1978 by John Hudick. He wanted to establish friendships with people who shared common interests. Because he loved the outdoors, most of the activities centered around hiking, boating, camping and barbeques.
Although we still offer plenty of invigorating outdoor activities, we have expanded our events to include movies, dining, house parties, music, game nights and bike rides. One of the most attended events is our annual Thanksgiving dinner. It is a wonderful time of warmth, food and friends, a welcome occasion for those with families far away.
We do not ask people to become "members" in the traditional sense, but subscribers. A one year subscription to 8 issues of the newsletter costs $15 after submitting a completed Subscription Form. The newsletter includes a calendar with a detailed description of each event.
Everyone who subscribes to the newsletter is welcome and encouraged to sponsor an event of their choice. Because of the diversity of the group, this assures that we will always have a wide variety of activities and events to choose from.
No subscriber or host/hostess receives remuneration for their events and the publication of the newsletter is accomplished entirely by volunteers.
At the present time we have over 200 subscribers but most of our events attract about 15 - 20 participants. Green Earth Singles is a wonderful way to meet new people and form lasting friendships. We only ask that each person abide by a few simple rules.
If you would like more information or to receive a complementary newsletter, please contact us. We would love to hear from you.
