Take a Widow To Lunch Program

Greg Cherry

Widows are an important part of our fraternity.  

All of us can do more to recognize and support our widows.

As such, I would like to implement the "Take a widow to lunch program" in our lodge. 

The program is as easy as it sounds. A current member must call on a widow and invite her to lunch. In turn, the lodge will pay for their lunch.

I was inspired by this idea after speaking to Bill Branch of Riviera Lodge.  

The member gets the benefit of connecting with a widow and learning more about her. 

The widow is delighted to know that the lodge is still thinking about her, and cares enough to reach out and meet. 

There are extra bonus points if a brother is able to take two widows to the same lunch, and allow them to connect. 

In the coming weeks and months I am going to test out the "Take a widow to lunch" program. I encourage others to do the same.
