A community Service of Remembrance will be held on Sunday, November 24, 2013 at 3:00 p.m. at the Chelsea Community Hospital dining room. This non-denominational service is open to anyone who has lost a loved one in the past year.
The service, which is expected to last approximately one hour, will consist of speakers who will discuss grief during the holidays, reading of the names of those who have passed away, and lighting candles in their memory. Each grieving family will be presented with a personalized memorial angel ornament. After the service, light refreshments will be provided, along with a time to share memories and experiences. Brochures about coping with the holidays will be available.
There is no cost for the program, and pre-registration is not required.
The service is jointly sponsored by Chelsea Community Hospital, Staffan-Mitchell Funeral Home, and Cole Funeral Chapel.
Any questions may be addressed to John Mitchell at 475-1444 or Allen Cole at 475-1551.
