Good day,

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 join us.

Dear Compassionate Friend:

As you are aware, Eileen and I have been planning for some time to step back as leaders of the TCF Ottawa Chapter and as we reach the 20th anniversary of our founding, feel that this is an appropriate time to “pass the torch”.

We are pleased to announce that Paulette and Larry Cadman have agreed to take over as Chapter Leaders. The transition will take place over the next few weeks and Eileen and I will continue to be available in an advisory role.

We have greatly appreciated your support to other bereaved parents by understanding and providing a safe environment to share experiences. We have a strong team of volunteers assisting with our various events and activities, and encourage you to give Paulette and Larry your full support as they take on their new roles.

With best wishes for 2019,

Andy Bond
