Great River Hospice is sponsoring a workshop to help people cope with loss during the holidays. At this time of year, events that once were anticipated with joy may become painful reminders that loved ones are no longer here to celebrate.

Turkey, Tinsel and Tears: Coping with Grief at the Holidays is scheduled at 6:15 p.m. Friday, Dec. 5, in the conference room at Great River Hospice House, 1306 S. Washington Rd., West Burlington. Participants are invited to a potluck dinner at 5:30 p.m.

The program is for the public, regardless of whether they have used Great River Hospice services. Reservations and attendance at the potluck are not required for participation in the program.

For more information, please call Great River Hospice at (319) 768-3350, (319) 986-6325 or toll-free (877) 404-4766.
