The Paris Architect: a novel by Charles Belfourne

In 1942 Paris, gifted architect Lucien Bernard accepts a commission that will bring him a great deal of money - and maybe get him killed.  But if he's clever enough, he'll avoid any trouble.  All he has to do is design a secret hiding place for a wealthy Jewish man, a space so invisible that even the most determined German officier won't find it.  He sorely needs the money, and outwitting the Nazis who have occupied his beloved city is a challenge he can't resist.

Grieving is a process of learning how to live in a changed world. When someone we love has died, or a relationship has ended, we are challenged to relearn how to be with ourselves, our families and our friends. We are faced with coping and managing painful feelings, and creating new systems of meaning that allow us to live with joy and purpose in spite of our losses.  Meeting with other bereaved individuals who are coping with similar life circumstances helps to reduce isolation and increase hopefulness.

VNAHG Bereavement Support Group meets the SECOND and FOURTH Monday of each month, February through April, 2017 from 11:00 to 12:00 PM.  If you have any questions, please call Janet Freed at 845-642-0935, Chaplain and Bereavement Counselor, VNA Hospice.

    Contact:    1-866-941-8188   
   

This workshop will focus on current high school students and their families.  Did you know that the average family borrows 39% of the total cost of college? and that two thirds of college graduates leave school with financial debt?

Attend this workshop and you will learn: how to maximize your potential for financial aid; how to lower your 'out-of-pocket' costs; why the FAFSA and your EFC are so critical to the college financial aid process; and how the ACT/SAT scores translate into financial aid dollars.

It is important to look at these issues NOW, before your student heads off to college.
