Since December is such a busy month and everyone’s calendar fills up quickly, we wanted to remind you about two upcoming events.

Widowed Friends Third Annual Holiday Dinner is Sunday December 10th at 4:00 pm at Hampton’s restaurant in the Quality Suites in Oakville.  Be sure to RSVP as soon as possible as this event has limited seating!  The Holiday Dinner is open to Widowed Friends members, their families and guests.


Food For Life’s Annual Turkey Drive is Saturday December 9th and Sunday December 10th.  There are two ways you can help provide a holiday feast for hungry families across Halton.

  • Purchase a turkey drawing at the Holiday dinner! These drawings created just for us by students from a Burlington elementary school are very special.  Every time you buy a $5 picture, your name will be entered in a draw for a bag of goodies to be picked on Sunday at the Holiday Dinner. Be sure to get your picture taken with your purchased drawing for our Picture Hall of Fame.


  • Shop at one of several Fortino’s stores on the weekend and purchase a turkey for donation to Food For Life.  Volunteers will be at the Fortino’s and Loblaw’s stores listed below, ready to accept your donation and provide you with a tax receipt:
