Panther Valley Social Group

Hi I'm wondering if anyone in Panther Valley would be interested in an informal social group. I know there is a friends and neighbors of allamuchy but their activities are during the week and I work.

what a great idea

5catmom 5catmom

We've lived here for three years and we'd love to be part of a social group! I'd even help you organize it, if you'd like any help. Perhaps the PVPOA would allow an announcement if you need more people.

Darleen Darleen
Jul '15

I'm in and agree. Most activities are geared to retirees or stay at home set.


Great idea! We would be interested.

BrandyB BrandyB

Would be interested as well, schedule permitting

What is the age group on here?

JrzyGirl88 JrzyGirl88

is that question related to chronological age or ............................

5catmom 5catmom

I am interested too. I moved to the Meadows of Mountain Ridge section in late March & would love to get to know people in my age range or so. I am in my late 40's. I work but can get together after work or on weekends. We could do a book club or talk a walk sometime or take turns at someone's house having appetizers and drinks perhaps?


All ages welcome .......

I live on Osprey, semi-retired, and a good cook, especially Italian. Your idea sounds like fun. How can I contribute?

DannyC DannyC

Not sure if anything ever really came of this. But after holidays are over would love to get some people together if interested.

JrzyGirl88 JrzyGirl88

I just contacted Pvsocial to let her know that there still is an interest. Let's hope we can do this.

Darleen Darleen

I too am still interested.

PVmom3 PVmom3

I am still interested - wondered what happened last time around.............

5catmom 5catmom
Dec '15

One of the interested parties offered to host a house party, but the plans fell through, apparently. I haven't heard back from the leader yet. I'll keep you posted.

Darleen Darleen
Dec '15

Hi! I was just reading through some old posts and came across this. I'm interested! Did anything ever come about on this?

Thanks!


Why don't we plan a get-together so that we can all meet and line up some activities. We can meet somewhere local like the Panther Pub one night or perhaps over the weekend like Sunday. We can also meet at a diner & have breakfast if more people would like that option instead of the Panther Pub. Let me know if you are interested & I can set something up. I am free this Sunday if that works with everyone.


Luca,

Panther Pub. I love their steak. Any time after 6 PM weeknights for me. Breakfast is too early for me, and I often work for my daughters on weekends. Very interested in meeting with you all and getting this going.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

only weekends work for me !

Missrx Missrx
Jan '16

Weekend nights? Worst case, I can get there by 7 PM after a day of carpentry. Both daughters are doing major renovations and need help.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

We can certainly meet on a weekend night at Panther Pub at 7. Next Monday or Tuesday works for me. Let's see what works for others as well!


My husband and I would both be interested and would go to the Pub next Monday or Tuesday night. We are there at least once a week anyway.

Some weekends would be ok as well.

Would be great to meet some of you!

BrandyB BrandyB
Jan '16

OK, so who is organizing this? Let's get a definite place, date and time to meet.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

This all sounds good to me! Do we want to say next Tuesday night (19th) at 7pm Panther Pub?
Traci


Tuesday sounds good to me

PVmom3 PVmom3
Jan '16

Well I'm glad this is getting going but weeknights aren't good for me. If anything comes up on a weekend keep me posted

Missrx Missrx
Jan '16

Weeknights are typically the best for me either Missrx so let's for sure plan another meet up soon!


I meant are not typically the best.


Missrx - We should make plans for a weekend night. Don't want to miss anyone.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

This is true! Whenever we all can would be better, I know it's hard with everyone's schedules. Maybe this Sunday later afternoon?


TK - Sunday nights work for me, after 6 PM.

Pvsocial - "For those interested that don't have an envelope by their name please pm me !!" What do you mean by this, and what should I do?

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

Danny- When you post on here with an email address, as you do, a little envelope shows up next to your screen name. Other posters can send you a private message by clicking on that envelope. When posters post without an email address, you cannot send them a private message.

Calico696 Calico696
Jan '16

So all I have to do is wait for a private message from Pvsocial, right? Or should I try to send a private message to Pvsocial? Sorry, new at this.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

Danny - It sounds to me like TK has pretty much taken the lead here as Pvsocial hasn't posted since July.

Calico696 Calico696
Jan '16

OK - New to this to taking lead makes me nervous, but I'll try!
Who can do: SUNDAY (17th) 6PM at PANTHER PUB?


Looking forward to meeting everyone at Panther Pub, Sunday (17th) 6PM. Hanger Steak for me. Pricey, but so tasty. I'm going to suggest dinner parties in PV. My place is not big enough to host more than 6 people, but I can cook for a crowd of dozens. Thanks for taking the lead.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

My husband and I can do PV Pub at 6PM on Sunday.

Thanks everyone !

BrandyB BrandyB
Jan '16

We also would like to meet all of you this Sunday at 6 pm at The Panther Pub. You're right that it appears that the original plans fell through, but I'm optimistic that we can make this happen. Will someone take care of making a reservation?

Darleen Darleen
Jan '16

Sure thing. I can take care of the reservation. I will see how many responses we get off this thread and I will send personal messages to the few I note on here from the earlier post to let them know and see if they're still interested. I'll make the reservation towards the end of the week when we get a roundabout number.


Hi TK - Count me in! Let's make this happen!


Thank you to everyone for helping to put this together!

Darleen Darleen
Jan '16

Hi again!
I am trying to send personal messages to the few I see on here that showed interest but there seems to be some kind of cap on how many you can send - it allowed me to do 3. So, to those of you I missed...
THIS SUNDAY (JANUARY 17TH) at 6pm at PANTHER PUB.
Please let me know us know if you would like to join or just drop on by! I'm going to make a reservation just so we are sure they have room for us so trying to get a roundabout number. Hope to see you there!


Count me in.

PVmom3 PVmom3
Jan '16

TK - Thanks for your work. Don't worry about personal messages. Put me down for two people, since one of my lady friends, also from PV, wants to attend as well.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

Is there room for one more? I hope this group is open minded!!! I'm thinking of a fun activity... Everyone's keys in a bowl and pick for a partner when we leave! ;-)

Ksween Ksween
Jan '16

I'd love to- but probably not around this Sunday eve...........keep us posted please and have a great time

Yes, there is room for one more person. The group is not age restricted and is open to those who are single or married. See you tomorrow!

Darleen Darleen

My Husband was going to join me but has to go out of town for business. Tomorrow it will just be me. Just wanted to give a heads up for the head count.

See you all tomorrow!

BrandyB BrandyB
Jan '16

Everyone is welcome, no problem!
See you all tomorrow :)

Mark your calendars for the next Panther Valley social gathering!

FOR: All PV residents - ages/singles/couples
WHEN: Friday, January 29th, 7:00 p.m.
WHERE: Panther Pub

We intend on planning different future events at other locations but thought the initial would be best at most convenient place.

Please let us know if you plan on attending. Feel free to post or email me directly any questions.

Looking forward to seeing you all again and meeting some new neighbors!


My husband and I plan to attend. Will be great to see you all again and hopefully meet more new neighbors.

How about we all meet for a giant snow ball fight? LOL....

Seems they under estimated our accumulation but we are having fun.

Stay safe and warm everyone.

See you on Friday.

BrandyB BrandyB
Jan '16

Hope everyone had a safe snow day!

See you Friday.


Dug out after being plowed in by PVOA. Weather looks good for Friday, so I am in. What is the head count now? Does Panther Pub have enough room? Maybe ask for a discount or commission for all the business you are bringing to them! BTW, did you have to spend anything for advertising the event on this forum?

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

Count me in Friday please

Just a reminder for tomorrow night.
Looks like we're going to have a nice little group...looking forward to seeing you all there!


I'm so glad to have met a fine group of PV residents. I just wish we were in a space easier to move around and talk to more folk. I'm also glad there are at least two of us who are going to start walking with (hopefully) some regularity.
Thanks to the organizers.

4catmom 4catmom
Jan '16

Very nice group of people, from all over the vast Panther Valley. I tried to make my way to both ends of the long table, but as you say, it was not easy to move around and talk to everyone. Ditto, thanks to the organizers. Next time someone with a big place might host a dinner party that I would be delighted to cook for. Please submit recipe preferences.

DannyC DannyC
Jan '16

Good morning, all,

Last night was so much fun and it's amazing to see how quickly the group is growing. We all seem to have instant camaraderie. The next event is a Comedy Night at Rutherford Hall and we'll be able to mix and mingle before and after the show. Please R.S.V. P. through our forum so that we can arrange to be seated together. Our tickets need to be purchased in advance and can be ordered online or by calling (908) 852-1894 x 138.

Click on the link below to find the details on our next event: http://www.aes.k12.nj.us/Domain/175

We are researching venues that will allow us to move around more readily while together. That way we can "play musical chairs" and get to know everyone. House parties are a great option and we're working on those as a possibility.

Looking forward to our next gathering! Invite your friends!

Darleen Darleen
Jan '16

Such a nice time last night. It was a pleasure meeting all of you! Will definitely host something at my house in the future, I was thinking since it is on the smaller side maybe a BBQ when the weather gets warmer. Thanks to the organizers and to the Panther Valley Pub for a job well done.

JrzyGirl88 JrzyGirl88
Jan '16

It was so nice to see everyone again and meet some new friendly faces. Thank you all for coming out. I agree...we have already outgrown the Pub. No worries...we are putting our heads together on other options, all suggestions welcome.
Hope to see you all again soon and feel free to invite your fellow PV neighbors!


Nan,

Please add me to the list of those who would like to walking with you!

Darleen Darleen
Jan '16

Danny,

Wow! How could we turn down an offer from someone who wants to cook for us. We'll work out details when we see you again. I think it would be fun if we had you teach us how to cook your specialties. We could have a social group and cooking school all in one!

Darleen Darleen
Jan '16

Shannon,

How kind of you to offer to host a barbecue. When the warm weather gets here, we'll definitely take you up on your offer. It was nice meeting you and I hope we can chat more next time. Perhaps you can join us for the comedy show.

Darleen Darleen
Jan '16

Think I will be in for the comedy show, just want to check on a few things. Will know for sure by Monday. We will keep you posted what days we are going to walk this week. Looking forward to you joining us.

Just reading the other threads about the new Craft Breweries in town, although not a huge beer drinker. That could be a fun night out, and I am sure they would love to have our new group.

JrzyGirl88 JrzyGirl88

Great ideas! Looking forward to the next get together.


Please count me in for the comedy show. I haven't been able to make the past couple of events due to scheduling conflicts, but am looking forward to this one! Thanks to the organizers for getting this group up and running.

Re: Panther Valley Social Group

TK - The guard at the gate I bribed said "we don't need no stinkin' costumes". I should have come as an ATF agent. I could open up my own liquor store with all the confiscations.

But thanks for that!

Panther valley social group members,
I think it's time we need to discuss a neighborhood watch. With this crazy killing in panther valley right under our nose we have no time to waist. I will like to nominate myself as the president of this group, I know you haven't met me but you're going to love me!!! We need to recruit as many people as possible for this is a major issue. I feel scared to be living here. We need to do something about it together ! Clearly having that strong gate gaurd is is not enough! Let's unit as one!!! Also in the mean time can people please think of a group name to call ourselves! Contact me with serious inquiries only! Go PV!

PV Strong, it was a domestic issue that could have happened anywhere. I don't think there is need for alarm.

Being aware is one thing, but living in paranoia is quite another thing.

Just effects one's quality of life.

This is a social group. I met many interesting people with all kinds of political views, which was most enjoyable. I am looking forward to seeing them again and possibly cooking for some parties, just for fun. If you are looking for a security job, please look elsewhere.

DannyC DannyC

DannyC what a great idea to cook for this meeting, thank you for your offer. As for the others who "heard" this is a domestic fight, just continue on your walks, holding hands, and taking pictures. We really don't need weak people for this group. Nothing is yet reported of it being domestic except for the chatterboxes gossiping on here. So I will continue to start my own neighborhood watch, and still see if anyone is with me!! Cmon we can do more then dinners and shows, we can really come together! I'm thinking of designing black shirts with a cutsie logo on it. Anyone know where I can do it?! I'm thinking of it saying "stronger than the gate- PV strong "!! Thanks in advance

Happy Easter to you too DannyC. Look forward to seeing you.

PV Strong, the more the merrier! Thought you would have been at the board meeting last night discussing your Community Watch ideas, if you were there why didn't speak up about it, or mention your problems with the gate??

Can we remember this is a social group - out to meet new friends and have a good time - PV business belongs at a board level, no?

JrzyGirl88 - Yes, you outlined the civilized way to get things done. If PV STRONG had been there, he/she might have landed a job in security, and got off our backs.

Geez, I'm sorry that I posted in the incorrect thread. I was trying to be social and bring awareness. Ya know, "Two birds, one stone" I have attended the meetings several time and feel that nothing ever gets resolved there. To all of your disappointment I still plan on going to Mattar's and meeting all of you. You'll be able to notice me, I'll be wearing my shirt with the logo on back.

PV STRONG - Willing to listen to your spiel, then ask everyone in the group respond in a civilized way. I think you are one sick pup, but that's just me.

Well, as one of the organizers of this great group, let me welcome you PV strong!
I'll take a size small tshirt if you are bringing enough for everyone.
Feel free to PM your name and I will add you to the list:)


I am good for 1st of April at Mattar's. Good food, Good drinks, and Good company.

happiest girl - Even if it wasn't their secret password, it is now! I've met those people, I do believe there will be some happy campers if Bessie provides the wassail. ;-)


I see "masil" and I think vinegar and water, not mulled cider (-;

My pleasure...now that was a fun time! I'll say we've grown, fill up an entire room! Great new people each time. So glad to see the word has gotten out even way outside HL and we've all met so many fun people.

Thanks to Mattar and our waitresses as well...awesome job!


What a nice night out, enjoyed meeting new people and hearing one of the best stories I've heard in ages. Thanks for sharing! Appreciate the invite!

We had so much fun with everyone last night. You know it's a good night when you've laughed so hard that you cried! We're so excited to see that the group is growing as it is.
We're facing a problem with the reservation for The Tap House Grille. When I originally called them everything seemed fine. We will keep the date of the 23rd of April for the event, but need to find a new venue. Does anyone have a suggestion? Would you all be willing to go back to Mattar's again if nothing else works out? You can private message your thoughts to me.

Darleen Darleen
Apr '16

I just found out that Mattar's doesn't have entertainment on a Saturday night. So, now the big question remains. Where do we find entertainment at a place that can accommodate all of us on a Saturday night? It looks as if we'll just have to entertain each other!

Darleen Darleen
Apr '16

As soon as it gets warm a BBQ for sure TK. Darleen how about Pub 517, I think they have entertainment on weekends.

JrzyGirl88 JrzyGirl88

They no longer offer entertainment.

Darleen Darleen
Apr '16

How about - Blackstones (was Pietros), Salt, or Bells Mansion?


Great ideas PJPV! Is everyone ok with a 15 minute drive to go to Salt or Bells? I know I'm all for it! But how about others...are you ok with venturing out of town for the April 23rd get together or would you prefer to stay very local? Let us know your thoughts and we'll look into these if everyone wants.


As most of you know, we tried to book the suggested places but did not work as we are too big of a group to accommodate - hey, we could have worse problems!

Thanks everyone for helping pick the next place: April 23rd at 7pm at Prickly Pear

Please try to RSVP by April 21st through here or the group email. We will continue to post events on the forum if anyone new is interested, you are always welcome to join, just let us know!

It was a perfect evening! Great weather, food, music and fireworks but the best part was the company. Thanks for the shoutout JG! It was my pleasure.

Sounds like a great night at the fireworks, glad you all had fun! Sorry we couldn't make it - busy, busy weekend! Hope to see everyone at the next event.


I am wondering if there is another social event planned. I live in Hope, and there is no social life here.

And if you could inform me if this is a mixed group? Singles and couples? All ages?

Thanks!

It usually has a listing and an email in the Panther which comes out to residents every month....

Well let’s organize then or start a new group ok? Seems as if plenty are interested. What do you guys think?


Fred ~ the group was active for a few years, unfortunately the planning all fell on the same person each month. She did a fantastic job and I will be forever thankful as she has become such a great friend. Please think of an event and post it. I am sure you will have interested people. Always good to make new friends.

Post a yes if interested in a panther valley meetup.


Yes, I am interested.

Darleen

Yes, interested

Two people so I guess not ..


It might be better to have a specific event to have a better gauge of the level of interest. I’m sure you would get different results between say, a meetup for game night or a local hike or a happy hour at the Panther Valley pub.


It's summer, a lot of people away. Also maybe post on Next Door not just here..
