National MOAA Surviving Spouse Advisory Committee
Grand Stand Chapter Surviving Spouses
The Surviving Spouses group within the Grand Strand Chapter of MOAA was established according to the guidelines of national MOAA, to assist the surviving spouses of deceased uniformed officers. The organization name (Auxiliary) was changed in 2016 to reflect the continuing changes to the role of Surviving Spouses.
This group has become very close-knit and supportive of each other. They assist at Chapter functions, contribute to other service organizations nationally and within the community. Surviving Spouse Chapter Annual dues are FREE !
Melody Wages is Chairperson of the Grand Strand Surviving Spouse group; you can contact her for questions, or to get more information on joining the group, by sending her an e-mail at MelodyWages@gmail.com
Our Prior Surviving Spouse Liaison, Joan Perry, received the first nation-wide MOAA Auxiliary (Surviving Spouse) Liaison Award at an annual conference in Orlando.
Congratulations, Joan !!!!
Luncheon meetings are held periodically at different locations on The Grand Strand, from North Myrtle Beach to Pawley's Island to accommodate all locations of residence...
Please contact Melody Wages at email@example.com to sign up for the luncheons.
Also, please consider inviting any widows and/or widowers of MOAA members you may be acquainted with, to join us at either of the next monthly meetings - Membership Dinner or Luncheon - to learn more about the chapter and the members who tirelessly give of their time and talent.
We look forward to meeting new members, and to help them to overcome the hurdles of being a "surviving spouse" and mounds of paperwork whenever possible.
