NEW! GRIEF SUPPORT GROUP "THE NEXT CHAPTER"
Wednesdays, December 5 & 19 at 7 pm


We are continuing to fine-tune our new Grief Support Group to better serve the needs of those who attend or are interested in joining. The Next Chapter is a grief support social, where people who have experienced different types of loss -- child, spouse, sibling, parent, or dear friend -- are welcome to connect with others who can relate. Come to share your story or just be a good listener. The holidays can be especially challenging, so come to one or both meetings offered this month. No RSVP is needed.
