Thamesford Death Cafe
We held our first Death Cafe at Westminster United Church in Thamesford. There were 15 attendees in total. We conducted it as one group, but any larger a group would have required breaking down into smaller groups, we have decided. It was an unqualified success. All of the participants indicated in their evaluations, that they felt comfortable and they would strongly recommend others attend. People were obviously engaged and respectful of each other's opinions and stories. There were differences of opinion expressed, particularly when the discussion of the value of cemetery visits arose. Most of the attendees indicated that they will probably come to the next Death Cafe that we host. This event exceeded our expectations!
