Social Link

   The first Saturday of each month, 1:30 pm – 4:30 pm

Social Link (formerly called Friendship Link) is a congenial group of women of varying ages and from varying walks of life. Single, married, divorced or widowed, our mission is to enjoy the many social and educational activities Toronto has to offer, while developing support and friendships around mutual interests. Any outing that’s inexpensive (or free) and easily reached by public transit may become a Social Link activity. We go to plays, movies, lectures, festivals, galleries, lunches, and music and dance performances together – or simply meet for coffee and conversation. This social group focuses on new members, but includes anyone who would like to meet and enjoy an outing. Events are posted on the OWN website and advertised by e-Tree.

We try to schedule at least four activities a month, most of which take place during the day. We meet to plan these on the first Saturday afternoon of each month; please come and join us. Bring notice of any activities you think are interesting so that we may consider them for visiting. There may be a few preordained considerations to work around, but other than that, we are open to all sorts of activities. We try to have as fresh an approach as possible.

If you’re curious to see what we’re like, or want to have input in selecting events, just contact us and say you want to attend one of our monthly social meetings. You’ll be welcome! Social Link is co-sponsored by the OWN Housing Co-op and the Older Women’s Network, and events are open to members of either and their guests.

The planning meetings are held between 1:30 and 4:30pm on the first Saturday of each month, at 115 The Esplanade (Call # 246 Front Lobby), Toronto. For more information call me at 416-242-6446, or the OWN office 416-214-1518. mentioned above. For further information regarding Social Link, please call Erin at the OWN office.
