Members buy beverages at discounted prices. When a member volunteers her home for a meeting, members bring appetizers and beverages. Volunteers coordinate meeting venues and endeavor to alternate between private homes and restaurants. Members and guests are invited via an electronic invitation requiring an R.S.V.P.

The organization was formed in 1991 when a new resident asked her real estate agent to invite a few friends to her new house to become acquainted with others in the community. Such a good time was had that they decided to get together again in two weeks and for each to bring a new guest.

The name, “Tomatoes”, stuck and is well recognized as “THE” social club in the area. Webster’s defines “tomatoes” as slang for “an attractive lady.” There are over 600 members who claim that title who belong to this elite group with the funny name. The largest attendance at any one meeting was 180, the average being around 80, dropping to about 50 during the summer.

Following a social period, a short business meeting is conducted by a volunteer moderator at which time guests are introduced, and announcements are made of items of interest to the group as a whole. Notes are taken by a volunteer and later distributed to all members via the group’s web-site.

There are no formal dues, no officers, only volunteers, and no special projects, just a good way to make friends, have good old-fashioned conversation, and learn what is going on in the area. Somehow it works!
