History

The Gay Over Thirties Society met monthly on a Saturday evening (or sometimes afternoon in the summer) for a very fun pot luck social. The parties were held in a member's house or apartment, a different one every month except for a few regulars such as Christmas, Valentine's Day, and one in July or August.

Most of the parties were in Halifax; some of the summer parties were in Amherst, South Shore, and the Valley.

Invitations were sent out by mail except near the end of the organization, after 2005 when some email was used.
