Created in 2017, MATS (Middle-Aged Tweens) enriches the social lives of Landings residents somewhere in the demographic spectrum “in between” life’s first act and second. Although individual circumstances of members vary considerably (part-time/full-time residents, club members or not, working or retired, married or single, raising families and/or caring for aging parents) most members are between 45 and 65 and enjoy active social lives. Casual events promoted by the group include Monthly Socials, Book Groups, Poker Nights, Ladies’ Nights Out, Coffees, a Business Group as well as a variety of special interest groups.
The essential requirement for MATS membership is a fun, participatory spirit and an interest in creating, organizing, hosting or helping to host or organize events. A volunteer, self-perpetuating steering group creates events and coordinates communication and membership. MATS organizers serve the group for a year or two before passing their roles onto successors.
As an informal organization of busy adults, everyone’s involvement in shared responsibility is vital.
Without MATS members giving back to the group in some form, we could not survive and grow. Whether you have ample time to give or just a few minutes here and there, we need your help. As this is a purely volunteer organization, we expect all MATS members to get involved in some way.
