The Widowed Persons Program wishes to thank Jamie Mclean, private counselor and Debbie Sis, Healing Touch practitioner for their participation again this year in our "Grief, Loss & The Holidays" public program in November. Their presentation offered many useful suggestions for families who have lost a loved one through death to navigate through this coming holiday season. Jamie and Debbie recommended ways to create new traditions that pay tribute to the memory of their loved one. We also want to thank the Widowed Persons Program members for their wonderful support and assistance in helping with room decorations, providing food and ensuring that all participants felt welcome at this special public program.
This public event was sponsored by the Juneau Widowed Persons Program, which provides activities and support for men and women of all ages who have been widowed. Program activities include monthly brunches, pot luck dinners, picnics and support group meetings. The group also organizes special community tours during the year to such places as the State and City museums, Glacier Gardens, the Jensen-Olsen Arboretum and the Mt. Roberts Tram. Many widowed persons discover that they gain insight into their grief journey when they have an opportunity to talk with others who have been widowed. For further information on the program, please contact Sue at email@example.com or 586-6424, or Sandy at 789-0355.
