FIRST WIVES CLUB
“The First Wives Club” is a support group for widows founded in 1999.
As Monsignor Dempsey once explained, “Partners in a marriage are like an unkempt tackle box with all the lures, fishing line, and other items tangled, entwined and wrapped together very tight.” So losing your spouse is like losing a part of your heart, and it is something you can’t understand until you have been there. Being with others who have experienced this, in turn, helps you. It is good to associate with people who understand and respect what you have been through. You don’t even have to talk about it, but being with this group seems to help.
What could be better than going to lunch with “the group” on a Sunday when you may not have anything else planned? A nice monthly luncheon is planned, at a restaurant which can accommodate such a group. The ladies receive a letter for each luncheon and respond with their reservation.
Everything is planned for the group by the Coordinator, Ruth Murphy, including a short program right after lunch. Each person is responsible for the cost of her own lunch, plus there are dues to pay at the beginning of the year to help with postage, envelopes and any other things that have to be purchased.
