February 27th, 7:00 P.M. - "Men and Grief - What You Don't Know....." will be lead by Doug Eisele. Doug will discuss men's grief, it's effect on the family, and lots of other aspects of family grief. There will be time for our sharing circle as well.

SAVE THE DATE: The last weekend in July (July 26-30, 2018). This is the annual meeting of TCF. The meeting in July 2018 will be in St. Louis, certainly a drivable distance. We hope to have a group going, so mark your calendar if you might be able to go. More details will be shared as we get them…….

March 6th, 7:00 P.M. - Alan Pedersen
This is a rare opportunity for us to see Alan Pedersen in person! He will be attending the Cincinnati North chapter on Tuesday, March 6th, 7:00 PM. Instead of a regular TCF meeting, Alan will perform that evening with his rare mixture of storytelling and songs about his journey since the death of his daughter Ashley years ago. Alan has recently stepped down as the Executive Director of TCF and is taking his show on the road. He has been to Cincinnati before and is worth seeing. There is no cost to attend but it is only open to TCF members. He will be at Gwen Mooney Funeral Home, 11285 Princeton Pike, 45246.
March 19th, 6:00 P.M. - Candle Lab, Anderson Towne Center
We will be having a fun night at the Candle Lab in Anderson Towne Center. It is scheduled for Monday, March 19th at 6PM. At this party, we will pick the scents to make our own candles. There is no cost to attend; 20% of any purchases that day will be returned to our chapter. Any purchases made during the day at the Anderson Candle Lab will also qualify so tell your family and friends. We are not allowed to bring snacks so we may go for dinner before or after. Please RSVP to Lindsay Bibler at lbibler@me.com or 513-652-7470 so we have a head count! Should be fun……..
