Arkansas-Catholic.org, October 20, 2014 | About eight years ago, St. Edward Church’s business manager Janet Daddato noticed several people at loose ends after they had lost their spouses.
She sent out invitations by postcard, and the idea took off from the start.
Nowadays, instead of postcards, Daddato posts an invitation in St. Edward’s newsletter: “Single (or widow, widower, divorced) and over 50? Maybe you’re just tired of going home and eating alone. Then come join us for potluck at St. Ed’s … “
The group calls itself the Over-50s Singles Group, and they meet once a month in the parish hall. They have so much fun that even married couples show up from time to time.
