SUNDAY - Easter
We're Interested in Creating a
FUN LUBBOCK COUPLES
Group. Are YOU Interested?
Everyone leads busy lives today...and making new friends and finding fun seems especially challenging for COUPLES. Like singles, being a "couple" presents its own challenges...and it doesn't matter if you're married or two singles who are dating. We, as owners/operators of the Lubbock Fun Club, Darryl and Stephanie Holland make it our mission each week to present our readers with a wide variety of entertainment and cultural offerings from which to choose. Many things are for families...some for singles...but whatever it is, we strive to shine the spotlight on the widest possible set of choices available...and we have FUN doing it.
Most of you reading this probably don't know that it was the Lubbock Fun Club that brought us together NINE YEARS AGO this month, in fact. At that time, Steph started the "SOS" (Singles Only Stuff) group...because there was a need. Soon after, we, as a couple, took the reins of the LFC because we wanted to see it continue on after the founder, Sandy Parker, moved across the state. Today, as a busy, married couple, we find it hard to develop meaningful relationships with other couples because of time constraints. We know there must be some other folks out there that feel the way we do...and we would like to provide opportunities for couples who enjoy doing fun acvtivites to meet and SHARE GOOD TIMES TOGETHER.
Whether it be getting together at a local restaurant to share a meal...attending a play...meeting up on the art trail...or gathering to listen to live music...there's a world of possibilities waiting to be explored. If you are interested in a concept like this, please give us some feedback and creative ideas for this new group! Email us at this address: firstname.lastname@example.org
We'll share more ideas from your feedback next week!
