WELCOME
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

did.

 

Once again, we welcome you to review our web site, become a member and get involved. There are no fees or dues.

PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE

June 2021

A big “Texas Howdy” to my dear WPS family. We have sadness in our hearts for the deaths, sickness, and loneliness so many of our WPS Family have endured and are enduring, but as I look outside and
see the hint of blue sky, white clouds and sunshine, it gives me hope. I am looking forward to the warm days of summer. Hope that once again we can greet each other with the “hug” that we so desperately
need. Hope to be able to sit together, enjoy a meal, talk and visit. We have not been able to do this in such a long time, and I for one have missed it.

Your WPS is trying with our “baby steps” to make this happen. We are seeing success as more members are making the personal choice to be at functions. We are encouraging new members who
would like to attend any of our breakfasts or lunches to call the hosts and let them know that they are new to WPS. That way, the hosts can make them welcome and introduce them to others who are
there. Do you remember the first time you decided to try to go forward with your grief and go to a breakfast? It takes a lot of courage to meet new people. See our Schedule of Events for June on page 5.

 

See page 2 (Ways & Means column) for the various ways of donating to WPS as well as some future events in the planning stage for July.

We will be having our first General Meeting for this year (normally planned earlier) on Thursday, July 15th, at El Fenix Mexican Restaurant, 885 NE Alsbury Blvd, Burleson, at 1:00 PM. This meeting will give you an opportunity to find out what is happening within the organization and meet with other members from the North, East, South and West areas that you have not met. 

A General Meeting is for all the WPS membership to attend, so think about going. No reservations are needed. Just show up, meet new friends, old friends, enjoy a good meal and perhaps get one of our famous hugs.

Thank you, new volunteers in the office and meal hosts. You are genuinely appreciated. Remember, everyone out there, if you would like to host a meal in your area just contact Diane Bowman, 817-996-
2337.

 

Flag Day is coming up on June 14th. Please fly our beautiful flag in remembrance of our great country, the USA.

WPS Hugs to you and all our June Birthdays. Happy Father’s Day,
also.

Ruth Turner
Interim President for Clarence Briggs
