Wings of Hope Plans Death Cafe

Wings of Hope Hospice is sponsoring a Death Café.  This event is a part of a growing worldwide phenomenon where people, often strangers, gather to talk about death and eat good food.

Death Café is scheduled for Tuesday, October 22, from 5 pm to 7 pm at the Wings of Hope Hospice office conference room located at 530 Linn St. in Allegan, across from Ascension – Allegan Hospital.

The objective of Death Café is to ‘increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives’.  Death Café was founded by Jon Underwood in England in 2011 based on the work of Bernard Crettaz, a Swiss sociologist.  Lizzy Miles was the first person to offer Death Café in the U.S.

Individuals may participate according to their level of comfort.  The conversation will be thoughtful, respectful and confidential.  The event is free and complimentary hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be served.  To attend, please RSVP by calling the Wings of Hope Hospice office by October 15th at 800-796-2676 or 269-686-8659.   Seating is limited.
