Widowed Persons Service warmly invites you to participate in any or all of our events and programs. Nearly all events are free of cost unless otherwise indicated. Donations are always welcomed. For information about the WPS special events and programs or to confirm event dates and times, please contact Donna at (765) 983-7307. Remember, some dates and times may be subject to slight change.
Entertainment & Social Events
Newly Widowed Class (Spring, Summer, and Fall classes as scheduled): Are you newly widowed- or know someone who is? This no cost class is extremely helpful. Contact the WPS office for exact dates and times for the next available class.
The Country Store: Located in the Widowed Persons Service office, the small Country Store features greeting cards, novelties, household items, gifts, antiques, hand made items, and so much more. The store is open to the public, and all items are generously donated to WPS and are priced very reasonably. Proceeds from all merchandise sales benefit the WPS educational and outreach programs. Contact Donna at (765) 983-7307 to make donations or for more information. (NOTE: Donations of household odds and ends, dishes, kitchen wares, antiques, new greeting cards, and other items are desperately needed at this time. Donations may be brought to the WPS office during normal business hours. Due to limited storage, WPS cannot accept clothing donations at this time).
