Grief and the Holidays program offered Tuesday

The Widowed Persons Program has announced a special public event, Grief and the Holidays, offered on Tuesday, Nov. 13, in the Mendenhall Library Conference Room beginning at 5:15 p.m.

Jamie McLean, LPC, a counselor in private practice and Debbie Sis, CHTP, Healing Touch Practitioner, will be presenting this program for families and friends who have lost a loved one through death. This program will offer suggestions on how to navigate through the holiday season, which can be a very difficult time for families who have lost a loved one. Participants will also learn how to create new traditions that pay tribute to the memory of their loved one.

This public program is sponsored by the Widowed Persons Program which provides events, activities, and support for both men and women of all ages who have been widowed. Program social activities include monthly brunches, dinners, picnics, pot luck dinners, and support group meetings. The group also organizes special community activities such as museum exhibits, day ferry trips and tours of the Capitol building, the tram, Glacier Gardens, and the Arboretum.

The Widowed Persons Program has extended a special invitation to everyone who has lost a loved through death to attend this public program. Friends and family members are welcome.
