​**In Person Meetings will resume in July!**

Compassionate Friends,

We are excited to announce that we will be resuming in person meetings with our July meeting.  For this meeting, we will welcome a guest speaker, Karen Carter, who will talk with us about her journey following the death of her daughter, Caroline.  Please make plans to join us at 7pm on July 15th for this very special event.

The Church has provided us with the following guidelines for our meeting:

  • We will meet in the sanctuary with socially distanced seating in the pews.
  • All attendees are requested to wear masks if possible.


Unfortunately, we must suspend having drinks and snacks at our meetings for now.  Feel free to bring your own drink if you wish.

As always, for any questions or concerns, please contact us either at our chapter phone line at 937-640-2621 or our chapter e-mail miamivalleytcf@gmail.com.
