Compassionate Friends meeting at church

Southern Indiana Compassionate Friends will meet at 7 p.m. Thursday at Vienna Baptist Church, 11 W. Leota Road, Scottsburg.

The Compassionate Friends organization, founded in England in 1969 and established in the United States in 1972, has grown to more than 600 chapters across the nation and has a presence in at least 30 countries.

The support group is committed to parents and grandparents who have lost a child or grandchild so they do not have to walk alone through their loss.

This meeting will feature a pitch-in meal. Anyone planning to attend may bring a photo of their child/grandchild, drinks and a side dish or dessert. Chicken will be provided. This will be a time to visit and share memories of your child/grandchild with other families.

Anyone attending this meeting is asked to bring an item, photo or story of their child or grandchild to share.
