Upcoming Events

Walker Art Center Tour and ART LAB Experience | Saturday, January 26, 2019 1:00 PM-3:00 PM

Start 2019 in a creative way -- join us on a winter Saturday for a guided tour of the Walker Art Center's art collection followed by a fun, guided creative activity and exploration in the ART LAB. No experience is necessary - just an open mind and a desire to have fun and do something together! There is also a great cafe located on site at the Museum, so members can feel free to grab a quick bite to eat or a snack before or after the event. 

Grief Support Group | Wednesday, January 30, 2019 6:30 PM-8:00 PM

Mark your calendars for our 4th Annual Grief Group.  This has been a favorite event of the year as everyone leaves the meeting feeling better than when they arrived.

Our facilitators, Jenny and Katie both have master's level education and special training in grief work. They work for Fairview Hospital in Grief Support for families and also Camp Erin.

Every year has been a little different from the previous year. You have an opportunity to share your stories if you choose to do so, learn to understand what you are feeling, learn healthy and unhealthy ways to express those feelings, and talk about what might have changed since the death of someone close to you or even after a diagnosis of a serious life threatening illness in your family.  

You can also just come and listen as all of us have or will experience loss and sadness whether it is the loss of a pet, grandparent, other relative or even a parent. 

Light refreshments will be served and cost is free.
