About this Death Cafe

Our Death Cafe will be held in The Living Room Art Gallery located in Historic St. Agnes Cemetery.  This Victorian era cemetery is the final resting place for citizens of this community since 1867.  The space is peaceful and beautiful and we feel it is the perfect venue to openly discuss a topic many people are uncomfortable doing.  Participants are encouraged to bring a bag lunch.  We will provide delicious cake and beverages.  The event is free and open to the public.  A small donation of $3 is appreciated to offset the cost of baked goods, coffee/tea.
