It was a warm one as we met in early July. Again, the attendance numbers were just right, a little less than 20. Any more and we found we might have to break up into separate groups. Not an ideal situation, having 2 group discussions going at once. Last July, we tried to meet outside, but it was too hard to hear each other.

Fourteen of us gathered in the rec room at Silver Sands. We split into three groups. By all accounts, the discussion was lively, interesting, and varied. Most of us attended out of curiousity. The three cakes were delicious! Each of them homemade by a different participant. No plans for a follow-up Death Cafe, but a contact list was circulated. Someone may host another Death Cafe or another get-together on a specific death-related subject.
