FAQ

Welcome to the SilverHairsClub website

SilverHairsClub, (SHC, in short) was conceived in Sept 2004. SHC was launched in Oct 2005 in Singapore. This is an informal social group; and, the idea aims to form a group of friends who are in their SilverHairs years  or are moving onto SilverHairs years.

Many of our working friends have retired, and when they retire, they forget their good old friends, and spend the rest of their lives with their grand children, at the department stores or the coffee shop.  Some have started new lives while many are considering new avenues of spending their retirement.

For all of us, reaching SilverHairs have different meanings.  Some do have exciting plans, while for some, they cannot wait to enjoy the thought of a quiet retirement.  And, for others, the thought of not working the next morning can also be frightening.  There is life during SilverHairs.

SilverHairsClub objective – The SilverHairsClub is a platform and venue for us to meet new and more friends.  SilverHairsClub has one main objective; and that is to provide a platform for SilverHairs to meet new and more friends.

The Club hopes that this will enable SHCians to:

  1. Find new and meet more friends.
  2. Share common interests.
  3. Exchange knowledge and information on retirement, and
  4. Enjoying a fruitful and meaningful retirement.

The SilverHairsClub is where our friends are, in Singapore and surrounding countries.  We hope to expand this space.  In order to meet its objectives, monthly get-togethers, talks, little eat-outs, interests groups gatherings, fleamarts, walking, cycling, travel and social/business gatherings are organised by members for members.

Do join us.  Contact the administrator at admin@silverhairsclub.com.
