Often I receive information regarding good places for a widow to go from good people I know.
The following is a copy of an email I received today.
I pass it along here at www.griefcase.net in the hope that perhaps you may find it of use. If you decide to go, tell her, Linda sent me!
...Just wanted to let you know about a weekend getaway for widow and widowers if you are intererested. Mary, Dawn and I attended last year and we had a great time. Sightseeing, Shopping, Dancing and just hanging out on our balcony watching the ocean and dolphins. The hostess of the gathering is my friend, Franny, you can reach her at MZimmer94@aol.com if you need more info.
Here are the details:
Joe and I were so pleased with the turnout last year and how smoothly everything went. We are planning to make Cape May 2008 just a little bit better if that is possible. More sun for this year!
The hotel is giving us a group rate, so the discounts won't apply. We will be getting a few perks...no charge for the dining room or bartenders at Saturday night's dinner. We will have the area off the 4th floor elevator for our group to use for a meeting and gathering spot. The hotel doesn't have anything larger for us....there isn't a lot of room to spread out, but we will manage. Bring your laps fella's just in case.
They provide some refreshments: Water, ice,soda, etc.
Anyone who is able to transport goodies, please bring them along.
Paulla and I will provide coffee.
Also, we love to win prizes, so this year, if you so desire, bring a little something for the drawing...possibly something from the state you live in or anything you would think someone would love to win.
Joe is bringing his wonderful T-Shirts .... we surely are looking forward to them.

Please mention you are with the Widows and Widowers
Group from AOL.....
The info is as follows!
Price per NIGHT: Tax incl.= $162.72 this is your standard room with two double beds. All the rooms have a balcony with rocking chairs AND are Beachfront. The rooms were renovated in 04, so they are beautiful. (With 2 in a room, the price is amazing)
Breakfast is included throughout your stay!
If you would prefer a suite: $196.62 per NIGHT. Tax incl.
All the rooms have refrigerators, microwaves, & coffee pots. Lovely wicker furniture in most.
I thought Saturday nite would be perfect for all of us to meet in their dining room for a buffet dinner which would be $25.
I will be charging an entertainment fee of $20 to cover the costs of a DJ, name tags, and several gifts to be given away at the drawing. I'll be making name tags of course for everyone.
If you have any questions whatsoever, please email me.
Joe and I am very excited about putting this all together again in Cape May NJ ..... a spectacular place to be...especially with good friends.
Sincerely, Franny Zimmerman
make the checks out to me. The total for both the entertainment fee and the Saturday Night dinner is $45.00, email me for the mailing address. MZimmer94@aol.com
