We are New Beginnings Singles Support Group, a non-profit, non-sectarian self-help support organization located in Abington, Massachusetts. The focus of our self-help group is to provide a safe, supportive place for recently single, widowed, divorced, or newly separated adults who are in need of support in dealing with the day to day issues associated with their situation.
Through small group interaction, led by a facilitator, the members learn to begin the process of building a single life and eventually re-enter the social world in a safe environment.
We are non-sectarian and self-supporting. The meetings are topic driven group discussions, usually offered by one of the members in the group, with the intent of helping the newly single person see that this is a temporary setback, not a permanent way of life. We also offer planned events that give members a safe place to go to socialize.
Our interaction as individuals during refreshment time or at planned functions helps to build new friendships and social circles. Many of us have lived through similar situations and are proof that a new, happy life is possible.
If you or someone you know would benefit from our meetings and hospitality please come to a meeting on Monday evening or give us a call at 781-499-2659 or Email us at email@example.com for further information.

Columbus Day which originated as a celebration of Italian-American heritage and was first held in San Francisco in 1869. In 1937, Columbus Day became a holiday across the U.S. Since 1971, it has been celebrated on the second Monday in October. The date on which Columbus arrived in the Americas is also celebrated as the DAe de la Raza (Day of the Race) in Latin America and in some Latino communities in the U.S.. However, it is a controversial holiday in some countries and has been renamed in others. It is controversial on many counts as there is evidence the first explorers to the Atlantic were Vikings and in addition, the land was already populated by indigenous people, who discovered the Americas thousands of years before.
Halloween aka All Hallow’s Eve It begins a three-day observance at the time in the liturgical year dedicated to remembering the dead, including saints (hallows), and all the faithful departed. Today’s Halloween customs are thought to have been influenced by beliefs from Celtic speaking countries, some which are believed to have pagan roots.
