A patron-hosted Death Café discussion at Almonte branch, Nov. 19 from 1:30-3pm

Death Cafés provide a unique opportunity to talk openly and honestly about death in a safe and relaxed environment. There are no agendas, no objectives or themes; the conversation is simply led by the people who attend.

The event is facilitated by Dawn Cruchet, a former nurse, and the clinical instructor for the Barry’s Bay Palliative team. To learn more about Death Cafés, you can check out their website:

This event, sponsored by CFCL (Centre For Creative Living), is free to attend, but is limited to 15 participants. Registration is required
