Social Groups


Fresh Start  

Their one purpose is to make fellow widows and widowers feel welcome. This is a social group of mostly 'empty-nesters' who are ready to begin socializing.

Meetings are frequent and varied. Their calendar of events may include pot-luck dinners, group dinners at multiple restaurants, going to singles dances as a group, karaoke, card games, even an occasional vacation. Members may participate as little or as often as they wish.
