2020 Annual November Seminar
Time & Location
About The Event
From the inception of Women Alone Together, providing opportunities for women to deal with loss has been a key objective. A Saturday morning before the holidays with a counselor soon became an annual event.
This year has been different. This event will be “virtually” different. Our objective remains to provide the opportunity for women to deal with loss.
Join us. Invite friends who may be lonely, have experienced the recent loss of a loved one or a painful change in circumstance. (Anyone can register on the website). We hope to leave with peace and perhaps a new perspective. We are grateful for the company of others. We do well to expect “These Holidays will be different”. Join us as we reflect and prepare.
