The Oakcrest Funeral Services’ 3rd annual Valentines Luncheon for Widows was a success! We enjoyed spending the afternoon at the Waters Edge Nature Center with nearly 100 wonderful women. The ladies enjoyed a delicious lunch catered by Wrangling Grace Cafe while guitarist, Russ Lachney entertained us all. After lunch, 10 ladies were chosen at random to form 2 “families” that went head to head in a fun game of Family Feud. We continued the festivities with several games of Bingo and many prizes. The afternoon ended with a memorial balloon release. Women were invited to write a special message to their spouse on the balloon. Everyone then went outside on the gorgeous deck overlooking Smith Lake to release the balloons. The mild February temps and the balloons soaring against the bright blue sky made for a beautiful sight.
Event organizers, Mary Schaaf and Shannon Goche look forward to planning this event every year. “We enjoy the afternoon as much as the women do. It’s fun to catch up with many of the familiar faces and meet new people in the process. We’re already planning for next year!”
