Fellow parents,

Andrew and Maria represented the Compassionate Friends at the CHEO Butterfly Release ceremony, held Sat 22 Jun. Maria passed on that it was a nice ceremony and very well attended and that she recognized a few people from the Compassionate Friends. Many who registered took bracelets, some pamphlets and were familiar with our chapter. The weather was nice and people received individual butterflies to release. Andrew read the English Credo and a chaplain attending the ceremony read the French version.

Thank you Andrew and Maria.

Dear Compassionate Friend:

A brief reminder of tomorrows Annual General Meeting.

Our 20th AGM will be held at The Olde Forge on Tuesday June 4th starting at 6:30pm. This is not a Sharing Circle but an opportunity to see what goes on “behind the scenes” and find out how you may be able to contribute to our mission of helping bereaved parents. We use an interactive round-table format with lots of time for discussion.

Please feel free to bring finger food to share.
