This is a group for widows and widowers of all ages who are interested in meeting others in similar circumstances in a social setting. We welcome widowed members regardless of whether your loss was recent or many years ago. We have members who have been widowed from a few weeks to over 10 years.
This is meant to be just a "social support" group rather than a grief support group. While we have no formal programs, our common experience provides a comfortable social setting for us. This is not meant to be a "dating site" and it is important that our members feel comfortable from being pressured at a time when we are sometimes quite vulnerable.
We get together for dinner, parties in members' homes, movies, shopping trips, book discussions and more. The group is quite welcoming and each of us has joined the group without knowing any of the other members - new members always receive a warm reception.
Singles or divorced individuals who are not widowed should not join this group.
