Every month, in addition to Widowed Friends weekly events, a “meet and greet” get together is held one Sunday a month. These are special occasions for the group, based on the original premise of the community that weekends can be lonely times for widowed people.
Meeting up at a members condo clubhouse is a great venue for the group as it is a large facility with kitchen, deck and lots of parking – ideal for mingling and sharing a casual buffet.
The February event drew about 60 people for an afternoon of conversation and fun. Here are some pics from the event. Thanks to Liesel and Barb for arranging the rental of their clubhouse space for us and for all the volunteers who helped out in set up and take down. Congrats to Faye for winning the door prize!
