Better Together

This group meets once a month on the second Wednesday of the month – all are welcome. Here we support each other with everyday events and things like anniversaries and other struggles we are having. We also meet a few times a year and share a meal, which is enjoyed by all. At Christmas time we discuss the difficulties of Christmas without our loved one and in June we meet to talk about vacation time without the one we miss. We call ourselves “Better Together” because we feel that journeying together helps a lot.
