Support Group
UNTIL HEALING COMES — This group is the foundational progressive program for any adult who has experienced the death of a loved one. This group will meet on April 4 at 7 p.m. and will be led by Lou-Ann Redmon

SPRING KIDS’ TIME will take place for six consecutive Mondays beginning, Monday, April 3, through May 8. This camp is for children ages 6-12 who have experienced a significant loss, such as that of a parent, grandparent or sibling. Through fun activities incorporating art, music, books & play, children will learn about and explore their grief with similar-aged peers who have had related experiences.

This will help children discover feelings, memories and coping techniques for grief. They will gain tools for managing and effectively expressing grief in their everyday lives. This camp is led by Mike Johnson, M.A.Ed., LPCC and Richelle Setordzie, M.A., LPC. Register your child(ren) by calling the GriefCare Place – 330-686-1750 or email griefcareplace@att.net.

Also, on Monday, April 3, there will be a special session for parents/​guardians on “How to Help a Grieving Child” also at 6 p.m.

Spring is around the corner so Save the Date for the 15th Blooming Brunch on May 6 at the Silver Lake Country Club. The guest speaker will be Kim Hone McMahan, former columnist and staff writer for the Akron Beacon Journal. To find out more about this event and/​or purchase tickets, call 330-686-1750.
