Being a young widow, it is comforting to see the strength and resilience of these Steel Magnolias.
Cindy Beaman (Atlanta, GA)
I was a recent widow and attended WAT when it was first formed. All the programs for 15 years have been wonderful and I have made so many new friends.
Judy McWhorter (Marietta, GA)
When I was Director of the Howard Schools and then head of the Heritage School in Newnan, Georgia, I had mountains of professional work and no time to read for pleasure. I now have time for myself. WAT has been a gift. I read interesting books and look forward to meeting a variety of bright women as we discuss our different impressions of the books. This is a gift to myself.
Mary Ben Christiansen (Newnan, GA)
I first met Carolyn Curry not long after my husband had suffered a massive stroke while we were on vacation and she invited me to attend. We are now entering our 10th year learning to deal with the changes in our lives caused by the stroke. I am so appreciative of the emotional support I have received from WAT. I am also grateful for the educational information about how to handle finances and long-term care.

I enjoy the energy and positivity of the group. There is always a thought or focus that I take away from each meeting. The loss seminar gave me insight into what my three adult children were experiencing after their father’s death. It guided the holidays.

Your club is not a group of ladies, it’s a force of nature.

The seminars have been wonderful…on investments, health care, retirement, transitions. But, it’s also the women themselves, and the experiences we’ve all shared together. These are women I would have never known, would never have met otherwise And I’ve made some real, lasting friends.

Women Alone Together has helped me keep a dancing heart.
