Hope for the Hol­i­days;

Sup­port for a com­mu­nity in mourn­ing

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS - Spe­cial col­lab­o­ra­tion Town­ship­pers' As­so­ci­a­tion

Griev­ing for a loved one is never easy, but cel­e­brat­ing the hol­i­days in their ab­sence can be even more dif­fi­cult. In sup­port of those in the Brome-Mis­sisquoi re­gion who are still coming to terms with the loss of sev­eral com­mu­nity mem­bers this year, a free in­tro­duc­tory in­for­ma­tion ses­sion on grief and griev­ing will be held at the com­mu­nity cen­ter in Knowl­ton on Mon­day, De­cem­ber 17, 2012, from 6:30 to 8:00 p.m.

Fol­low­ing a short DVD pre­sen­ta­tion, com­mu­nity or­ga­ni­za­tions, spir­i­tual lead­ers and men­tal health work­ers from the CLSC will pro­vide in­for­ma­tion about the ser­vices of­fered in Brome-Mis­sisquoi. There will also be an op­por­tu­nity to speak with the group which most meets your needs. The evening will con­clude with a can­dle­light vigil, which has been or­ga­nized by young adults of the com­mu­nity in me­mory of those that are no longer with us.

The Knowl­ton com­mu­nity cen­ter is lo­cated at 270 Vic­to­ria Street in Lac-Brome.
