Portland Area Widowed Singles 50+ (PAWS 50 Plus) is a Meetup group for single widowed people 50 years old and over who live in Portland and the surroundings areas.
PAWS 50+ is a supportive social group. Our goals are to get out of the house, have fun, openly communicate with one another and to stimulate conversation about our post-loss, moving-on process within a safe, socially interactive environment that may include some members dating.
The focus of this group is to offer a supportive atmosphere so that we may join wounded hearts together as we walk this lonely path until love fills our hearts once more. At our age, it doesn’t appear that we have and/or share the same pressing and immediate issues as younger widows and widowers. Being 50+ doesn’t mean that we don’t or won’t have problems dealing with our grief, healing hearts, moving-on, and companionship.
We will meet at least twice a month, perhaps more as needed. We would like to meet for a Saturday lunch or Wednesday night dinner to give us a chance to meet and talk. Then, a public outing: parks, nature walks, picnics, nature preserves, botanical gardens, museums, short road trips, city and county public events, community dances, BBQ potluck gatherings, local charity events, and upon suggestions made by members.
Sign up, meet up, and let’s have some fun as we walk the healing road, together.
