Why talk about death?

Death is a normal part of life; it is not a failure to be avoided or hidden. At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather in an open, respectful place to eat dessert, drink coffee and to discuss whatever they wish on dying and death.  Death Café is part of a global movement whose main objective is to increase awareness of death while helping people make the most of the rest of their lives.  A Death Cafe is a group-directed discussion of death with no agenda, objectives or themes – no products or services are sold or endorsed. It is a discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session. See for more detailed information. Join us for coffee, cake and conversation on Sunday, March 5 from 3 – 4:30 in the Library meeting room.  RSVP by calling 540.718.5323 or email by March 2.
