Officers for the Widowed Persons Association of California Chapter No. 6 were recently installed by outgoing President Amelia Ernst at a luncheon on Dec. 3 at the Woodbridge Country Club. The new officers for 2012 are Shirley Highsmith, president; Willo Schmidt, first vice president; Gwen Mello, second vice president; Carol Henderson, secretary; Earlene Sanders, treasurer; and Amelia Ernst, parliamentarian.
We feel it is important to keep information about our WPAC before the public to continue to reach out to newly widowed persons in our area. The purpose of WPAC No. 6 is to provide a support group for widowed men and women of all ages and promote a wide range of social activities through which widowed persons have the opportunity to make friends and find redirection in their lives. We also support local charities throughout the year.
We meet the second Saturday of each month for a social luncheon and business meeting at the Woodbridge Country Club, 800 E. Woodbridge Road. Our Outreach Bereavement meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month at Hutchins Street Square. Those who attend these meetings do not have to be members. We invite all interested persons to call 209-339-4680 for more information.
