ALBERT LEA, Minn.- Many people now-a-days turn to technology to meet other people. Whether it’s online dating apps or applying for a job. Now, a new Facebook group is bringing those together in Freeborn County
It’s called “Gather.” It’s a group for adults in Albert Lea and the surrounding areas to meet other adults who share similar interests.
Saturday will be the first “Gather” event. It will be at the Green Mill Restaurant. Organizers picked that spot so people could watch college football and meet new people in a relaxing setting.
”My husband and I have been residents here for five years and we haven’t had a lot of opportunity to meet people outside of our children’s activities,” said Lindsay Kramer of Albert Lea, MN. “Sometimes it’s nice to meet other people and I think we’re most excited to just see all the different faces. The faces that we’ve seen around town, but haven’t met yet that have similar interests to us”
Everyone is welcome to attend the event. It will start at 11 AM. You can find more information on their Facebook Page.
