Here in UK, there is an ever-growing older population, and the clubs, societies, groups, adult-education facilities, sporty outlets etc etc are endless. Even in our tiny village, there are several clubs and interest-groups for older people of both sexes, well-subscribed and flourishing. Our Church is a great source of friends and social meetings. There are also, in most parts of the country, gyms, Keep Fit clubs and swimming pools with hours set aside for the older folk, the University of the Third Age, WEA lectures, Adult Education centres and so on, where one can learn and meet people. I'm sure there are the equivalent of these in the US. Good luck, Bonnie!
