Sun 1 Dec
Cuppa at the TCF seat in Weston Park. Join Judy and Maxine at the TCF seat enjoying the lake view. There will be hot water and coffee available or you could pick up takeaway coffee from Yarralumla shops. Please take a small plate of food to share. No RSVP is required.
Tue 3 Dec 7.00pm Special end-of-year sharing meeting. We call our meetings ‘sharing meetings’ because they provide an opportunity for us to talk about our child/grandchild/sibling who has died and any issues or thoughts which have arisen in relation to this, with understanding friends. For the December meeting, as well as this sharing time, you are invited to bring a child’s Christmas gift to be distributed by the Salvation Army. It could be something that you remember your own child liking, or anything of your choice. (Please leave presents unwrapped, but donations of wrapping paper are appreciated). We usually finish with candles and a few quiet moments before supper. Please bring a small plate of festive food to share.
Sun 8 Dec
7pm – 8pm
TCF Worldwide Candle Lighting Ceremony at our Children’s Memorial seat in Weston Park. Members are also welcome to participate in this world-wide event at home, or by joining Chris at the seat in Weston Park. Remembering our children: ‘that their light may always shine’.
A candle will be alight from 7 until 8, and you are invited to bring individual candles to light from the central one. It can be windy by the lake, so bring some protection for your candle. For comfort we suggest a chair or rug to sit on.
January There is no scheduled sharing meeting for January.
Sun 2 Feb 9.00am TCF International Children’s Memorial Day (Butterfly Day) at our seat in Weston Park. Come and join us for a short ceremony followed by breakfast.
