What we're about

ABOUT THIS GROUP

You do not have to be widowed to attend as a guest but we do ask that you are widowed to join.

This is a unique local Social and support group for those of us that have lost a significant other and would like to start a new life and meet new friends that we can identify with, no matter the age. The loss of a partner is the same if you are 60 or 20 and this group is for those of us who are not ready to give up on life.

Please note:
THIS IS NOT A DATING SITE, IT IS A SOCIAL SUPPORT GROUP FOR THOSE OF US THAT HAVE LOST A SIGNIFICANT OTHER.

Widows and widowers are some of the most understanding people on earth.
As we meet, we develop an instant bond because we know we have shared a common and very daunting loss and are still sharing many grief processes, no matter how long it has been.

This is not a deep grief counseling group. What we would like to provide is
ongoing grief support thru fun, relaxed, casual, companionship and conversation, at monthly dinners, get-togethers where we talk almost non-stop, and make new friends, plus we schedule other fun activities and outings.

We welcome any input or ideas for outings.
So please feel free to suggest an outing, schedule an outing, or volunteer to be an event organizer!
Please recommend a good restaurant or event you think the group would enjoy .

*************
We do require a few things from you:

We do not allow any sales pitches, nor do we allow members to ask for money or to borrow money from other members. And also,
we ask that you not contact other members unless you first meet and agree to such contact. Thank you in advance for honoring these requirements.

One last thing, if you cannot make a gathering, please be courteous, and UN-RSVP ASAP before the event so that others will not be kept waiting for you.
*************

This is and always will be, a non-profit group.
All efforts made here on behalf of the group are entirely a labor of love on my part, and you will never be charged by this group for joining or for attending any function, unless the venue charges at the door, for instance a movie house, theatre, dance, etc.

Thank you, and welcome!
