THIS IS NOT A DATING GROUP OR SUPPORT GROUP ( see ON A SPECIAL NOTE below).  This group is for widows and widowers who have lost their spouse or significant other and would like to get out and socialize in a group setting.  We will schedule events either as a single group event or in coordination with another social group. The focus of this group is to help you to move on by getting out and socializing (and make new friends). Many of our members also belong to social groups on meetup and have learned that it's easier to move on when you can do so with others that can relate to your circumstance. You can learn to have fun again by just coming out and meeting some of us. It's not easy but if we do it together it helps. We are a very open group with people suffering new losses to veterans of 10+ years. We are here for each other...as life goes on.   ON A SPECIAL NOTE:  Although this is not a dating group, several folks were lucky enough to find love again within the group and they still remain active members even after their wedding day.

There are no age limitations on this group and currently we range in the mid 50s through late 60s.  Our event Calendar may be viewed once you join.

We schedule events from Bunco to DOminoes to dinners to movies to art strolls etc.  Everyone in the group is open to suggest an event that interests them and get others to join in.  We suggest that you give it a try and if it's not your "cup of tea" you are free to leave the group.  No pressure. There's also no pressure to attend events. You can join and then come to a meetup event whenever you feel you are ready. Or bring a friend to your first event if you feel more comfortable doing so.  We do ask when you sign up for an event, please follow through and attend.  If you must cancel, please let us know.  No shows will result in membership cancellation.

This is a closed group and we ask that you post a recent picture so it's easier for everyone to recognize each other at an event.  Also use your first name and  at least the initial of your last name as we have many folks with the same first name.  You will need to live in the local area in order to attend meetings. 

We have a zero tolerance rule regarding any members messaging other members for the sole purpose of dating.  Please report any issues to one of the organizers personally or through a meet up message.
