Singles Mingles has events twice or more per month with coffee, lunch or dinner in various restaurants in the New Bern area. We also have wine and appetizer parties or a coffee in the home of a member that would like to open their home up to our group. We also carpool and venture out on a day trip sightseeing something in our area. Singles Mingles is a singles-only group that meets to socialize, make friendships, and have great food and conversation, but is not a dating service.

To Attend:

Interested members will be emailed details of a scheduled activity several weeks in advance. Simply respond to the email if you will be attending. An RSVP is required as space is limited. If your plans change after indicating you will attend, please email the activity leader to inform them you will not attend. To be added to the group's email list, sign up at a general meeting or email the group leader.
