Regional Social Events

Regional GroupsSoaring Spirits provides widowed people with the chance to meet socially, and to create a local community of widowed friends through our Regional Social Group program. Groups are led by our awesome volunteer facilitators who plan meetings twice a month in their geographical area.

Our meetings are focused on assisting widowed men and women in rebuilding their social structure post-loss. We don’t provide any presented content, and all of our meetings are held in easily accessible public locations. Our aim is to assist widowed people in getting back out into the world, with a group of understanding friends by their sides!

The locations of our regional groups are determined by the availability of a volunteer willing to head the program in any given area. To determine if there is a Soaring Spirits Regional Social Group meeting near you, just enter your zip or postal code below. Interested in joining our Regional Social Leader team?

    No. 246 in Decatur, GA

    ATLANTA - SEPTEMBER 26, 2018

    Join us!

    No. 246 is a lovely restaurant on the Decatur square with attentive service. (It is named after the Decatur plot number, not the street address if you're wondering about the difference there.) If the weather is nice, we'll sit on the patio and, hopefully, enjoy a fall breeze. They have a brick pizza oven and some fabulous pasta dishes. Take a look at their menu and you'll surely find something you like:

    Parking is located in the deck behind the building across the street or at Decatur Presbyterian Church down the street.

    ( Cost is parking and your own food and drink.

    Ask for the Soaring Spirits group at the hostess stand.

    This one requires reservations so please sign up at no later than 24 hours before the event.
