Divorce Support Group & Anniversary celebration!

Wow! Hard to believe but it's been 2 years since the very first Divorce Support group meetup! To celebrate all the triumphs and success stories, all the healed hearts and treasured friendships, and to continue to support those who are struggling, we will be meeting out of the confines of the local libraries for the first time. A meeting place at one of the local metroparks, (to be determined, ideally not far from our usual library hangout) will be selected. We will then proceed along the lines of our usual meeting format. Meeting new members, discussing current issues, and relating successes and continuing difficulties. (And having a few good laughs as well!) Then, rather then proceeding to the local Applebee's we can hang out at the park, and celebrate our anniversary! All our welcome to bring a dish to share, but more importantly, all are welcome! Hope to see you there.

    This first meet up for me with the Divorce group was amazing! Everyone was so supportive, resourceful, non-judgmental and genuine. I am grateful to have met such an awesome group at such a critical time in my life. I hope I can be as helpful as you were/are to me. It was great! Look forward to more and loved the park idea. Its summertime! God Bless! Ill get my daughter to assist me with a picture :~)

    Joanne. I hope you don't mind if I bring Ambrosia salad?

    July 1, 2013

  • Dan K.

    We will be meeting in the park rain or shine. Luckily I am on vacation this week, so I will be heading to the park early. I'm confident that I'll be able to secure a pavilion. There will be a meetup sign that is an exact replica of the red & white "Meetup" logo. Can't wait!

  • Bobbie

    Hi, I just wanted to know is it in the park rain or shine?

    July 1, 2013

    • Hind

      Yes, Bobbie. We will try to secure one of the two pavillions, but it is on a first come basis.

      July 1, 2013

  • Lisa C

    I will bring chips and pretzels.

    July 1, 2013

  • Hind

    I will bring Greek salad ... Opa! :)

    I just found out I have to work at Blossom Tuesday night. Darn. I won't be able to make the meetup. I was really looking forward to it. Hopefully next time!

  • Bernadette

    Looking forward to this weeks meetup and bringing a friend who is looking at taking the divorce path very soon and needs some support and friendship to help her stay focused.

    June 30, 2013

  • Jane

    wenhave some things left from our cycle ride too- I will bring that as well!!

    June 30, 2013

  • Dan K.

    Probably be a good idea to bring a lawn chair if possible. The pavilions at this park may not be available. There are plenty of picnic tables and lots of room, but we may need extra chairs. Also I will be bringing a vegetable platter with dip and some beverages as well. Looking forward to seeing everybody!

    • Jane

      Don't forget the bug spray!!!!

      June 30, 2013

  • Linda B.

    Possibly 4. Do I need to bring a dish?

    June 29, 2013

  • Dan K.

    Ok folks, the location is set. More information on Big Creek reservation can be found at www.clevelandmetroparks.com, if required. I'm going to try to get the pavilion at the very back edge of the parking lot, but it may not be available. There is another sheltered area in this park near the front entrance, if need be. There will be a posted sign, but if all else fails, just look for the bald guy. Won't be the first time, or the last, LoL!

  • Joanna B.

    Is this a progressive series or can anyone join at anytime? I'm probably ready to join a divorce support group. Maybe a bit overdue, actually.

    June 18, 2013

    • Lisa C

      Join anytime! As a somewhat new member, I can tell you this group is awesome.

    Hi, I am sending this out to apologize to someone who recently sent me an email with a question about the NEO meetup . I accidently deleted it and could not retrieve it, to respond. I am hoping you resend me an email so I may respond back to you, especially since I recall you mentioned Meetup is new to you.. I hope to hear back from you.

    I really wish I could make this but I have my kids that night. Luckily I have them 50% of the time. Love those little ones. I'm really looking forward to the next one. It's been a difficult few months...

    Joanna this is not a 'progressive' series, and anyone can join at anytime. This is really a terrific group of people, hanging out together and sharing support through the difficult realities of divorce.

    Oh darn - I am planning to be in Washington D.C. on the 2nd. I'm going to watch the 4th of July celebration on the National Mall. Sorry I won't be able to join you all. I appreciate this group very much and am happy that I found out about it. Have fun. Happy Anniversary. Lisa

I'm surprised by the level of growth I've seen since becoming an organizer, it's given me more confidence in my abilities.
