Portland Area Widow and Widower 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. Some of our members are recently widowed while others have been widowed for quite sometime. All are welcome.
All members need to post a close up of their face on their profile to be a member of this group. The leaders need to be able to know what you look like when you come to one of the events. This is now mandatory to be a member of the group. Thank you!
PAWS 50+ is a supportive social group. Our goals are to, have fun, openly communicate with one another and to enjoy new friendships. We will enjoy stimulating conversations and fun times that cover a scope of activities. Some members may want to share their post-loss, moving-on process within this safe, socially interactive environment. Some members may want to just enjoy the activities while others may enjoy dating other members of the group.
The focus of this group is to offer a supportive atmosphere. 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 it won't be a challenge dealing with our grief, healing hearts, moving-on, and making new friends and finding companionship.
We will meet at least twice a month, perhaps more. We would like to meet for a Saturday lunch or week night dinner/happy hour to give us a chance to meet and talk. We will enjoy; 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. Input from members is hightly desired!
Sign up, meet up, and let’s have some fun as we walk the healing road, together.
