PEPS for Grandparents

Where Grandparents gather, connect and create connection

PEPS recognizes the vital role of grandparents in their children’s and grandchildren’s lives and offers opportunities for grandparents to come together for support, shared information, and learning.


Grandparent Happy Hours, Brown Bag Lunches & More

Celebrate being a grandparent and connect with other involved and curious grandparents like you at our events for Grandparents. PEPS for Grandparent Events are an opportunity to mingle with other grandparents and have a discussion, guided by an expert facilitator, on a topic relevant to grandparents.

iLEAP Library, Good Shepherd Center, Wallingford

Topic: How can you stay connected with children and grandchildren through technology and social media? Join us for this hands-on tutorial and introductions to social media tools such as Facebook and Skype/Facetime.


Jennifer Dolan-Waldman is a grandparent of three, ages 10, 7, and 2, and has used a variety of technology resources to connect with family members both near and far. Prior to her retirement, she taught classes focused on introduction to technology, helping people of various skill levels and interests become more comfortable with using and managing different forms of personal technology.

Liz Dodds moved to Seattle in 2016 to help care for her two grandsons, ages 3 and 1, after retiring from a long career as a high school librarian in Fresno, CA.

Grandparent Meet Ups

Grandparent Meet Ups are informal gatherings organized by grandparents. Get to know other grandparents in your area and share the joys and challenges of grandparenting.

Interested in hosting a grandparent meet up? Hosting means that you choose the date and time; choose the place (coffee shop, restaurant, ...) where you would like to meet; and be at that place during the day/time you've chosen. PEPS will share the info with the PEPS Grandparent Community for you! Contact if you are interested in hosting a Grandparent Meet Up.

Please consider sponsoring these events so that we can continue to provide resources and information to involved and engaged grandparents. Contact us at to find out how!
