What we're about

Mission Statement & Rules

Our mission is simple - To provide a network of support and entertainment for people going through, or have just gone through, some sort of crisis. Your peers will be people, who at one time or other, have suffered as a result of divorce, separation, or had to deal with a death or other traumatic event that leaves them feeling alone and isolated. Who better to help than someone who has been there possibly many times and has all the tee-shirts! We are a group that cares for and supports it's Members.

What We Do

We are here to stop that feeling of being alone and helpless, to help you through the trials and tribulations of a crisis in your life and modern society. You will meet like-minded people and generate new and lasting friendships, and even do things you never thought you would do before. We have fulfilled many things on many bucket lists! We don't have an age limit. If you are old enough to get married and are still breathing you are welcome, so there is no limit.

What to Expect

We Meet for coffee once per week, usually at Tim Horton's on main street, ( subject to change occasionally). We just get together, chat, plan events etc. Old members greet each other and welcome new members. We chat about our day at work, social events, the latest thing in the news or any topic you like. It's just an opportunity to make sure everyone gets a chance to say something if they want to. We laugh, we disagree, we find out we have things in common, and before you know it, you have a bunch of new friends.

The first Thursday of every month, the meeting is held at a restaurant or other venue, to celebrate (with cake) any birthdays in that month.

Here are just a few examples of our varied calendar:

Movies, live theatre, pubs and cafes, mini-golf, bowling, whale watching, fishing, OnTree Climbing and Zip-lining, Murder Mystery nights, attend lectures on a variety of subjects, games night, Stargazing, Sea or Lake BBQs, Walks, Wildlife watching, Geocaching, Pool, Golf, Road-trips to various parts of NS, special events and festivals. We meet for Breakfast, Brunch, Dinner in a wide variety of restaurants and many other things as they crop up, or show up on your bucket list. We will try put on any event you are interested in, so don't be shy. Get out that bucket list and let us know what you want to do ! Bungee jump, Skydive, White water rafting, Scuba diving....................You name it we will try to put it on !

Just get out of the house and enjoy life, with people who want to do things, or even just listen and chat with like-minded people, listen to each others stories, and have some fun and and yes, even laugh and support each other.

Joining

A little nervous about joining? Then, well, pardon the pun, but join the club. many are nervous for the first meetup, but really it's absolutely nothing to worry about, we don't bite and everyone is welcoming.

Although a divorced separated and widowed group, We are probably the most social group in HRM With more diverse activities than others. Couples are allowed, providing there is no animosity if you break up! If there is no agreement between parties, then the last one to join is the first to leave.

A word on emails and using the website. ALL information you need for any event is always posted on our site. If there are any changes such as cancellations or time/ day changes they will also be posted, ( in most cases an email will only be sent out to all who are signed up for an event. Most importantly BEFORE you set out to an event check the website for last minute changes. This does not happen often but sometimes its inevitable, Just check before you leave.
