In addition to its ongoing bereavement support groups, Lake Sunapee Region VNA & Hospice (LSRVNA) has planned two special programs for the holidays. One is a two-part informational and learning program on how to handle the holidays after a loss. The other is the annual “Time of Remembrance” celebration to remember and honor the lives of loved ones lost.

Holidays can lose their luster after the loss of a loved one. “Handling the Holidays After a Loss” is a two-part program that explores ways to proactively plan and maneuver through the holidays. It will be held at LSRVNA at 107 Newport Road in New London on November 2 and 9 from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.

“Time of Remembrance” is an annual event to celebrate the lives of individuals in the LSRVNA Hospice program and community who have died over the past year. This special ceremony will be held on November 8 at 5:30 p.m. in the Sugar River Bank Community Room at 10 North Main Street in Newport and will include readings, music and refreshments.

Both of these programs are free and open to the public. For more information or to RSVP, call 603-526-4077.
