Grief Song Ceremony

Posted on

Holly Pruett and the Death Talk Project are producing a Grief Song Ceremony on May 1st in Camas, WA.  It looks like a lovely event.  Thought I would help spread the word!

One week away!

Posted on

I hope you are doing well on this last weekend before our event.  We are getting really excited for next Sunday.  I visited Silas’ bench at the Crystal Springs Rhododendron Garden last week and the garden is looking really beautiful.  The magnolias are just starting to bloom and Spring is in the air!  We are going to have a lovely walk/run.

I want to take the opportunity to thank everyone who has already signed up to join us.  We currently have 149 in person participants, 23 in spirit and we have raised $9,061 for The Dougy Center.  This could be our biggest year yet!  If you have not yet signed up to join us, we would really appreciate your support.  Online registration closes Friday, March 4th at 4pm.  Please join us today!
