Are you a widow who is seeking to add a few more friends and a whole lot more fun to your calendar? Are you looking for people to share a meal with once in a while, play a game, and go on an adventure? Our Treasured Singles group may be for you! We have social opportunities once or twice a month that range from game nights and a dinner held at Byron Ministries to outings we take on a bus. In May we went to South Haven for dinner and shopping and conversation. In June we’ll have a game night (June 7) and on June 21 we’ll have a “Welcome Summer!” party. In July we’ll trek to Pentwater for the day. There’s more happening beyond that.
If you know of a widow who might like to join us, please pass along this information. Currently the group consists of nearly 30, friendly and inviting women who share the bond of widowhood. Whether one is new to this experience or has been a widow for quite a while, it matters not. We would love to have you join us. Call Donna at 878- 6000 Ext. 10 for more information.
Are you a widow or know a widow who lives, works, or worships in the Byron Center community? If so, please know that the Treasured Singles group meets once a month. The Treasured Singles are an inclusive and active bunch of ladies who take “field trips” to South Haven, Pentwater, Holland, dinner out, game playing, movies, and more! The women are a variety of ages, all with the common bond of having lost their spouse. Some of the attenders are very recently widowed and some have been widows for years. Though the loss of a spouse is difficult, laughter and fun can still be a part of your life. Join us and let us be a part of your life, too. Call 878- 6000 and ask to speak with Donna.
Do you have elderly parents who need to get out more often for socialization and a good meal? Do you have neighbors who are isolated and telling them about a new community opportunity would be helpful? Do you sit behind someone at church who you sense would benefit from mid-week interaction? Tell them about the $4 lunches at Byron Ministries each Tuesday and Thursday at Noon – 1 PM. Attenders need to call 878- 6000 to RSVP 36 hours in advance, as the food is prepared off-site.
We have games, special speakers join us once a month, and conversation and coffee are free flowing until 2 PM.
Spread the word! If you know of a caregiver who needs an outing or who would be blessed by this service, share the information.
Take a look at our diverse and delicious menu. Tuesday is soup and salad and Thursdays include a hot entrée. Call us 2 days in advance to reserve your place at the table. The cost is always $4. See the special speakers we have planned for February, including, “The Hat Lady” on Tuesday, Feb. 21. (She’s funny!) On Tuesday, Feb. 28 we’ll have a special speaker talk on “The Impact of Grandparents on their Grandchildren’s Faith.” It’s inspiring and insightful! Call to RSVP at 878- 6000. See you soon!
