Grief, Loss and New Beginnings: Relearning the Family Mobile-A Free Community Program
June 18, Eau Claire
The death of a family member, significant other, relative or friend changes who we are. It provides us with a new "window" to look through which we have never seen before. It reshapes us. Death and loss of any kind remind us that although we want predictability and control over our lives, neither is guaranteed. This program will examine transitions and what brings them about, the wisdom that comes from exploring our “dark emotions” and the process of relearning our world. It also will provide strategies to help families and friends trying to cope during the "journeys of transition."

Stories, Icebergs and Family Mobiles: Helping Others as We Help Ourselves
June 19, Eau Claire
Situations concerning losses of any type are part of life and occur on a regular basis in the lives of individuals and their families. This program will provide insights into the world of grieving, prior to or after a death, and will provide strategies and interventions to help those involved to cope with the opportunities and struggles on the “loss journey.”

Makerspace Week of Dabble
June 18-22
The maker movement is happening all across the country and now Chippewa Valley students can join in on the fun. This class allows for expansion of the maker mindset by encouraging exploration and creativity through the use of a variety of materials in designated stations. 

Nonprofit Innovation Conference
Everywhere you look in northwestern Wisconsin, you’ll find driven, talented people working professionally or personally in the nonprofit realm. This conference was created with those individuals in mind. If you’re one of them, you should check out what the day has to offer. Not only do we hope you learn some new things that might help your organization reach higher levels, but also that you can connect with others and strengthen your network. You never know what problems you can solve together!
