Brattleboro Area Hospice to offer "2nd Thursdays in the Memorial Garden" on July 14th


Brattleboro, VT. A brief community memorial service will take place on Thursday July 14th from 5:30-6:00 at the Hospice Memorial Garden located at Living Memorial Park in Brattleboro. The short program will consist of readings of inspirational poems and brief reflections on grief and loss, an opportunity to decorate a memorial stone to place in the garden or take home, and some quiet time to enjoy the beauty of the garden. Everyone is invited to this free event.

This new offering from Brattleboro Area Hospice is called “2nd Thursdays in the Memorial Garden”, and it will be repeated on August 11th and September 8th. The facilitator is Connie Baxter, BAH Bereavement Care Coordinator.

The garden is located on Guilford Street, on the hillside adjacent to the road, directly across from #150 Guilford St. If you’re uncertain if the event is taking place because of weather, call the office at (802) 257-0775 and speak to Connie at ext. 104 or Joyce at ext. 105.

Brattleboro Area Hospice is an independent, community-based, non-profit volunteer organization that provides grassroots, volunteer-staffed programs to supplement and provide alternatives to the professional services utilized by dying and grieving community members. Hospice is locally funded and provides services free of charge. Hospice is located at 191 Canal Street in Brattleboro. 802-257-0775. Visit www.brattleborohospice.org
