Our speaker, Jane Gibson, Greensboro Hospice and PalliativeCare
The next meeting of the Guilford College Community Civitan Club will be our Annual Family picnic at Triad Park, Colfax., Thursday, June 1, 6:00 pm. We will be in shelter #1, the same as last year. Bring family members, neighbors and friends. Chef, President Willie Pegram will cook the hot dogs and hamburgers.
At the last club meeting, we had a very interesting & informative program with Jane Gibson, Greensboro Hospice and Palliative Care. Jane talked about how to help and allow someone to grieve when they have a loss. The key is to be with them, don't try to fix it. Many times it can't be fixed - just be there, you don't even have to say anything, all that is needed is your presence.
