Start Something New!

Meetup's mission is to revitalize local community and help people around the world self-organize. Meetup believes that people can change their personal world, or the whole world, by organizing themselves into groups that are powerful enough to make a difference. But that doesn’t mean that your Meetup group cannot be purely social, too. Getting together for companionship and friendship is also a big part of Meetup.
Do you like gourmet food? Kayaking? Contra dancing? Playing the ukulele? There are local Meetup groups for all of these hobbies, and most are only a short drive from Amelia Island. If you want to start up your own Meetup group, their web site makes it easy, and plans start at around $12 per month, which can be easily paid by asking your members for a dollar or two each time you meet. Meetup does all the advertising and Meetup members receive emails letting them know when the next Meetup is, and where. For more information visit www.meetup.com.
