Bridge Hospice's Group S.T.A.R. (Special Times Always Remembered) will be offering a Holiday Memories program for bereaved children ages 6 through 12. The program allows children to come together with their peers and participate in activities that will help them express their feelings, create lasting memories of their loves one and have fun at the same time.
The Holiday Memories program will be offered Nov. 21 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Heritage Corner Health Care Campus, 1069 Klotz Road in Bowling Green.
Dinner will be provided for the children. Family members are encouraged to return at 7:15 p.m. for a candlelight closing ceremony.
A Findlay-based Holiday Memories session will be held Nov. 12 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. at Blanchard Valley Hospital, 1900 S. Main St.
"The loss of a loved one can be difficult for children as they attempt to make sense of the loss and deal with the changes it creates," said Theresa Scherger, Bridge bereavement coordinator. "Participating in holidays and special events can often intensify their feelings of loss and grief. This program can help them express these feelings with their peers."
