Friends with Compassion, formerly Compassionate Friends, a support group for families who have lost a child, will have a holiday potluck party Thursday. The event will begin at 6 p.m. at the Tahoe Verde Mobile Park Clubhouse.
To make a reservation, to decide what to bring, and for directions to the clubhouse, call Jonquil as soon as possible at (530) 544-6892. Anyone interested is welcome to attend. The holiday potluck party offers great food and an atmosphere of friendliness and warmth.
The purpose of the group is to give comfort to one another and provide an opportunity for sharing.
Each parent and/or other family member who wishes may bring an ornament that is significant to them regarding the child they lost. Place that child’s name on the bottom or back of the ornament and leave it unwrapped. Each person will put the name of their child in a bowl. One person begins the exchange by describing why they chose their ornament to give and how they relate it to the memory of their child. That person draws a slip of paper with the name of another child on it and gives the ornament to the parent of that child.
