Dear Compassionate Friend:

This e-mail includes an important reminder about the Mid-Winter Social and news of an upcoming Bereavement Conference.

Mid-Winter Social – Sunday, February 18th

Following a successful inaugural event last year, Julia and Kevin Page have offered to host a second Mid-Winter Social from 12 noon to 2pm on Sunday, February 18th at their home in Britannia. The format will be a pot-luck lunch, similar to our Summer Social, and is open to any parent, regardless of whether or not you have attended a Sharing Circle or other TCF activity. If you would like to attend (and we hope that you will), please reply to this e-mail for directions and to help planning.

Bereavement Conference – Saturday, June 9th

Ottawa parent Sue Kavanagh is planning a one-day Bereavement Conference on Saturday June 9th at the RA Centre. The planned topics include all losses not just the death of a child and registration details will be announced in the next few weeks. If you would like to make a presentation or give a workshop, the attached Call for Presentations should be returned to Sue by February 15th. (Note that the date is June 2018, not 2017 as stated on the form.)

Sharing Circles – every 3rd Tuesday

Our Sharing Circles continue on the 3rd Tuesday of every month. The next meetings are February 20th and March 20th.

National Newsletter

The January newsletter from TCF Canada is attached.

Best wishes,
