Widows and Women (Caregivers) Alone is designed for women who are widowed or are caring for spouses who are terminally/chronically ill. Its purpose is to support and encourage those who are experiencing this “alone” time. Meetings are held once a month, and include luncheons, dinners, major community events, and other activities as they may be of interest to the group.

The monthly meeting includes a brief devotion and prayer time, lunch or dinner, and sharing of interests and fun time. Reservations are requested, and may be directed to Maureen Lipford 270-1264. Your comments and questions are welcome. PLEASE REMEMBER TO MAKE RESERVATIONS!
