Current Classes, Groups, and Events

1.   "Understanding Your Grief" by Alan Wolfelt -  Next session February 26th of 2019, always on Tuesday from 10:00 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Meetings are every Tuesday with the last class meeting on May 14th.  Through the years I have found it will provide a  time of healing, sharing, laughing, crying and looking to the future. Let me know if you are interested so I can add you to the list. See photos on the Grief Support Group page.
