Grief support at the holidays

ELLSWORTH — The winter holiday season can be tough for those who are missing a loved one who has died.

Hospice Volunteers of Hancock County presents a gathering for support for anyone grieving Saturday, Dec. 8 from 8:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at St. Joseph Catholic Church.

“At a time when everyone seems to be happy and enjoying themselves, those who are grieving may feel sad, lonely or depressed,” a statement from the group said. “Everywhere you turn there are reminders that you are missing your loved one: decorations, special songs, advertisements talking about togetherness and sharing–it can be hard to feel so out of step with these special times.”

The program is free of charge but pre-registration is required by Dec. 3. Call 667-2531.
