Adding Events to the Second Chancers Calendar:

Potential New Members: Attending our Regular Membership Dinners is a good way to get to know our members and for us to get to know you. We require that you attend at least one Regular Membership Dinner before attending any other event. Our Regular Membership Dinners are the 2nd and 4th Thursdays of the month (weather permitting), except for November and December, when dinners are only scheduled for the 2nd Thursday of the month due to holidays. Locations for the dinners will vary. Please read the Membership Requirements and Information at the bottom of this page for more details, and to find out if this is a group you would like to join.

Current Members: If you have an event that you would like to put on the calendar (movies, plays, concerts, day trips, boating, festivals, etc.) please email your event to George Spiers at, and he will post it on the calendar. Once the event is posted, you may find that other members will want to join you. We will copy and insert your event into the calendar. We need: day, date, time, address, phone number, the cost to attend, a complete description, a web site address of the event (if available), and your RSVP email address. It may be easier to ask another person to co-sponsor an event with you, especially if you are a new member, but co-sponsors are not required (ask George for help). 


La Posta

          Thursday, September 28th -  2:00 PM

513 Baltimore Annapolis Blvd, Severna Park, MD 21146


           Phone: 443-906-2840           

parking lot in front - Off Rt 2, it’s the old Post Office



Please RSVP to Charlotte Sazama at no later than Tuesday, September 26th, if you plan to attend.  The lunch is limited to 15 people, and is open to potential new members. They will do separate checks. But you should always bring enough cash to pay for your portion.




NOTES ABOUT THE HOLIDAY GIFT EXCHANGE: First, it is NOT mandatory that those attending dinner participate in the gift exchange.  You can simply watch the rest of us being silly about trying to hold onto a gift that we really like.  We've had lots of laughs doing this in prior years.  Those participating will select a number from 1 to 20, depending on how many people make reservations for dinner.  After dinner, we will call the numbers in order -- 1, 2, 3, etc.  When #1 is called, that person selects a gift from the table where gifts have been "anonymously" deposited.  Person #1 will open the gift and display it for everyone to see.  Person #2 can either select a gift from the table or "steal" the gift from #1.  The same can be done by persons #3 through #20.  There is no limit to the number of times a gift can be "stolen."  The only restriction is that you cannot immediately steal back a gift that someone has just stolen from you -- you must choose a gift from the table or from someone else.  After the person with the highest number has selected their gift, Person #1 can decide to either keep the gift they already have or they can steal someone else's gift and give that person their gift, at which time the game ends.  If you decide to participate in the gift exchange, please bring a wrapped gift with a value of at least $20-$25 that is suitable for a man or a woman.  Some people put things in much larger packages so that it is not easy to guess what is inside.


The Second Chancers social group is for people age 60 or over who are single, widowed, or divorced.

The concept behind this group is to provide a method (our calendar) for members to post an event they are interested in attending with other members of our group. For example, movies, dining out, pot-lucks, dances, concerts, plays, shows, day trips, sporting events, or anything of interest. The purpose is to (hopefully) find other members who might enjoy attending the event with you.

Our group provides a "Second Chance" to continue going to the places and events you enjoyed before a divorce or death of a loved one - rather than staying at home because you have no one to go with, or because most of your friends are couples and are involved in their own lives. We are offering a forum where you might encourage others you have met in our group to join you in the continuation of the fun things you like to do.

Attending our Regular Membership Dinners is a good way to get to know our members. If there is an event you want posted on the calendar, please email the details (day, date, time, location, address, phone number, website link, the cost to attend, a brief description, and your email address for RSVPs) to George Spiers at at any time, and it will be put on our Calendar. If other members would like to attend the event, they will RSVP to you and you can make arrangements to meet them and/or to car pool to the event, if possible. Even if only one person responds, your event was a success! As you get to know people in our group, you may find someone willing to co-sponsor events with you if that would be easier for you.

We are a member-driven group. We do not have a committee that provides events for you, just a couple of volunteers who arrange the bi-monthly member dinners (for which we appreciate suggestions), take care of the website and other administrative duties. Members are expected to sponsor events on a regular basis.

If you are considering joining our group please be aware of the following:

  • It is important to understand that we EXPECT OUR MEMBERS TO PUT EVENTS ON THE CALENDAR about 3 times a year, roughly every 4 months. Members who do not put events on the calendar and/or who have not attended a Regular Membership Dinner in 6 months or more could be dropped from membership.
  • We communicate through emails only, so it is important for you to have use of a computer or smart phone. This calendar web page will be your source of information regarding events. Check it often, for sometimes events are added or changed at the last minute.
  • There are no membership dues at this time; however, we ask that you round up your calculations to full dollars at the regular membership dinners to cover the cost of the annual website fee, name badges and any other minor group expenses during the year. Any funds left at the end of the year, after expenses, will be donated in the group's name to one or more local charities.
  • You will be responsible for paying your own way to attend an event, assuming it is not free.
  • Potential new members must attend one of our Regular Membership Dinners before attending any other event. It makes it much easier for us to get to know you and for you to get to know us. We usually have 2 Regular Membership Dinners a month, on the 2nd and 4th Thursdays. Always RSVP to the email listed in the event to guarantee yourself a seat at the restaurant or other event. Plan ahead, and PLEASE BRING CASH ONLY TO PAY FOR REGULAR MEMBERSHIP DINNERS, because the group will receive one check for those meals. No Credit Cards accepted.  For other mealtime events, separate checks can usually be requested.
  • Whenever you email any of us, it is very important to reference "Second Chancers" in your subject/reference line, so your email is not considered spam and thus may not be opened.
