Remembering Irene

To the Valley News:

This week, and for weeks to come, we will all remember the devastation and loss that occurred at this time last year during Tropical Storm Irene. The losses were physical but they were also emotional and very deep for many, and many continue to struggle a year later.

We would like to invite those who experienced loss during Irene – or any other loss through the death of a loved one, loss of a job, divorce – to join us on Sept. 20 and Sept. 21. Dr. Alan Wolfelt, one of the leading authors, educators and counselors on grief and loss in the United States will be coming to the North Country. Thursday evening’s workshop in Saranac Lake is for those who have experienced loss. Friday’s daylong workshop at the Visitor’s Interpretive Center in Paul Smiths is for those professionals and others who work with those who are struggling with loss. Preregistration for both workshops is required.

All loss matters. We encourage all who have experienced a loss or are trying to help someone who has to join us. For more information or to register please call 891-9631 or go to highpeakshospice.com.
