In recent months or days you have been placed in a period of time in your life that caused you grief and sorrow in the loss of someone you loved.
The members of the Widowed Persons Service of Tarrant County extend a hand to you and welcome you into our lives.
You are welcome to view the pages of this web site. We extend an invitation to join in our activities. We believe you will find comfort in the knowledge that everyone you meet in the coming months and years through our activities has experienced the same cloudy days but you can be reassured there are sunny days ahead.
After viewing these pages ask the office to send you one of our monthly newsletters. You will be glad you
Once again, we welcome you to review our web site, become a member and get involved. There are no fees or dues.
The Candlelight Service remembering our lost love ones was held at the St. John Lutheran Church in Mansfield this year on Sunday, November 15th at 3:00 PM. The facility was large enough that we were able to accommodate all comers and maintain social distancing guidelines. We could have handled at least twice as many as were present, but under the current circumstances I guess our members are being extra careful, which is understandable. Of course, masks were worn, and temperatures were taken. The memorial went well and was deeply moving.
The November General Meeting was held at 1:00 PM on Thursday, November 19th at Spring Creek Barbecue in Mansfield. Officers and Board Members for 2021 were elected. Our Secretary, Sharon Perry, who has been diagnosed with and is undergoing treatment for COVID-19 was unable to attend. Please keep her in your prayers.
I am planning a Board Meeting for Saturday, December 5th, our first since March 7th, at the Skillet & Grill restaurant in Arlington. This is where we held the October General Meeting with 38 members in attendance. The meeting will be at the regular time, 10:30 AM, so you can enjoy a late breakfast or early lunch and attend the meeting. I hope that all Officers and Board Members including the newly elected and the outgoing Officers and Board Members will attend.
It has been a strange and rather tiring year in several ways. Let’s hope that things settle down in 2021, and we start to get back to something that is not so unsettling. I wish all of our members and their loved ones a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. May God bless us and our country.
If you have sent a check to WPS and it has not cleared your bank and you want to know if we received it, you can email or call the office. We log in all checks with the date received. However, please remember that our postal service leaves a lot to be desired.
Thank you to the membership for your financial support.
We still have to pay our bills in these trying times.
Clarence Briggs, President
