What we're about
This group will be down for the summer months and will resume in the fall.
Meet-Up 50+ Widows and Widowers Activities and Social Group-Scottsdale is open to only widowed women and men for membership. It doesn't matter how long or how you lost your loved one. As long as you are widowed you are welcome.
We are still "young at heart" and we all have a beautiful life to live and share. We treasure the love we shared with our spouse, and we know our spouses would want us to continue to live and be happy. Living with the loss of a spouse is not always easy to talk about and/or be with others who don't "get it."
If you are ready to move beyond a grief support group and/or want more social activities, but not yet ready or interested in a singles group, then this group will help you to build a new social life. THIS IS NOT A DATING GROUP. We enjoy going out with others who understand what we have been through and the need we all have for companionship/friendship.
The goals of this group are to get out of the house, have fun, share activities, openly communicate with one another and to stimulate conversation about our post-loss and moving-forward process within a socially interactive environment.
We will have scheduled "Meet-Ups" every month, but ALL members are encouraged to use their membership as a tool. When there is something you would like to do, and would rather not do it alone, you can send an email to post an event and invite other members to join you. Some ideas for activities include: movies, going out for coffee/tea, lunch, dinners, brunches, walks, hiking, trips, day trips, concerts, bowling, special events, celebrating birthdays!... etc.
Looking forward to meeting you.
Please note: most of our meet-ups are in and around Scottsdale, mainly during the daytime week-day hours.
