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 Elaine Weber at elaine21237@gmail.com, and she 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 Elaine for help).

Saturday, April 14th, 11 am

 

OVERNIGHT WINE TASTING EXCURSION

 

 

Let's try the wine on the other side of the Potomac, on Saturday the 14th of April.

 

 

Let's start out at either the Cana, Chrysalis, or Boxwood winery at 11 a.m. when they open. All are located just off U.S. 50.  Virginia law does not allow us to bring alcohol from outside the winery, and many wineries do not allow outside food.

 

Use your search tool to find a map of Virginia wineries.

 

Many wineries require advance reservations for groups of 8 or more, so if our group is large, we can split up and not all go to the same winery, or attempt a reservation.  Some groups also are required a minimum bottle purchase.  We will adjust when we get closer to that date.

 

After the tasting, we can head down route 626 to The Plains just off I-66 for lunch.  We can choose between The Rail Stop, or the Front Porch.  Both have soup, salad, and sandwiches (the Front Porch has a more extensive menu).  They both have similar prices, and both serve beer and wine.

 

After lunch, we can head out to I-66 for another tasting.  We have Barrel Oak off I-66, and then Aspen Dale, Delaplane Cellars, Three Fox vineyards, and Arterra WInes just off highway 17 going north.  After we have saturated our tasting appetite, we can head up highway 17 to U.S. 50 and over to our hotel(s) in Winchester Va.  There are over a dozen hotels near the U.S. 50 and Interstate 81 intersection. 

 

There is one major hotel located in the old town historic district of Winchester.  It is the Hotel Washington, which is a recently remodeled 1920's hotel. This is a Wyndam Grand property.  Indoor pool and Jacuzzi; large bar.  Full breakfast, lunch and dinner available in the hotel, but breakfast is not included in the room price.  Parking is valet only and costs $5 per day.

After check-in, let's enjoy the shops, museum and historic sites at the pedestrian mall next door to the hotel.

 

For dinner, we can choose from Italian fare at the Violino Ristorante or Brewbaker's Restaurant (casual tavern at the pedestrian mall) or the restaurant at the hotel (Georges Food and Spirits) for standard American fare.   

 

After dinner, we can gather and enjoy the large lounge at the hotel with an after dinner drink. Sunday is on your own to return to Maryland.

 

This event is also being offered through the Crofton-Odenton MEETUP group.  Please email Steve at Steve-Evie@msn.com and let him know where you will be staying.  This event is open only to SC members who have attended at least one Regular Membership Dinner.

                       MEMBERSHIP REQUIREMENTS & INFORMATION

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 Elaine Weber at eweber@energetics.com 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.
