Making new friends…building new lives. We're single through no choice of our own. This group provides a way for us to get together and have fun, talk and share conversation where it’s OK to mention a spouse or a good memory without feeling that no one else understands or worse, no one else wants to hear it. We're all about having a good time in a comfortable environment. We’ll support and uplift each other, share some laughs, enjoy monthly dinners or a happy hour, maybe a movie or event… Suggestions from our members is very much encouraged! The group consists of like-minded folks who share a common life event, friends just waiting to meet each other. We want to enjoy life, a new life that we are forced to make for ourselves. It’s not easy but we will ride down the road…together. Some of us have probably been doing this for a longer time than others. It doesn’t matter how long you've been a widow/widower because this building a new life thing is a continuous, ongoing journey. Don’t feel upbeat and talkative? So come to a group gathering and just listen… we "Get it". Sometimes it’s just good to get out of the house even when you really don’t feel like it. We’ll be happy to see you no matter what mood you are in. What we do ask is that when you RSVP for monthly events you remember to adjust your RSVP accordingly if you find you are not able to join us.
So...if you are a widow or widower or someone who has lost a life partner, well come on, don’t just sit there… join the group! We cant wait to meet you!
