Memory Bash: Keeping memories alive

Join other families in a special Memory Bash — an opportunity to come together as a community and lovingly remember those we miss so much. Participants will have the opportunity to select from a variety of art projects, musical interventions and other activities designed to keep the memories of their loved ones alive. The event is intended to promote healing and joy.

The Memory Bash is open to bereaved parents and families:

• Adult participants can come alone, or can invite extended family or close loved ones to join them — grandparents, aunts, uncles and others welcome.

• Children kindergarten-age and older are welcome. Children will stay with their adult companions throughout the event. The event will be adapted to all age levels.

Free childcare is available for children ages 18 months to preschool ages. Families with babies younger than 18 months will need to arrange for private childcare.

All art materials and supplies will be provided. Attendees do not need to have experience or ability in the area of art of music to creatively participate. There is no fee to attend. Families are encouraged to bring copies of photos or other small symbols which represent their loved one with them. These items can be incorporated into art and memory-making projects. Families will take all art, music and other projects they create home with them.


Invitations with registration information will be mailed in September
