Starting Over Socially (S.O.S) 

Offering comfort and support for those who have lost a spouse and need help getting their life back on track while starting over. When a spouse dies, many widows and widowers find they have not only lost their loved one, they’ve also lost their social circle. It can be painful to be single among a group of couples. That’s the basis for a new social/support group, Widows & Widowers Starting Over. The group serves to offer comfort and support for someone who has lost a spouse and needs help getting their life back on track, while starting over with the support of God and new friends. The group is open to all ages. When you are hurting and all your friends are couples, Widows & Widowers Starting Over provides a place to socialize in a safe environment, with others who know what you're going through.

Meetings every month on the second Tuesday at the Courtyard by Marriott at 11am which includes a round table discussion and a presentation on Cooking for One as well as lunch by Chef Garry.
