A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."

Politics as (Un)usual!
7:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Politics as (Un)Usual: The Colorful Story of Massachusetts State Government

Massachusetts politics has always been colorful and at times scandalous. In fact, history has shaped the Bay State and made us what we are. Author Eamon McCarthy Earls, a local town legislator in the MetroWest area, a Massachusetts Municipal Association –Municipal Councillor Association officer, and a former Beacon Hill student-intern with a degree in history with honors from UMass Amherst, will deliver a lively and entertaining look at our “Colorful Commonwealth,”   from colonial times to the present day.

From gerrymandering and “Know Nothing” governors to the “rascal king” – James Michael Curley – Massachusetts has seen it all. And along the way, one of the nation’s most Republican states even became the most Democratic of the 50 states.  Eamon’s books have focused on the history of the town of Franklin, the building of the gigantic Wachusett Reservoir, the impact of the Cold War, and the devastating hurricanes of the 1950s. Now he turns his knowledge of Massachusetts history and first hand experiences in government to the pressing questions facing the Commonwealth in the 21st century.

This program is free and open to the public. Please register below.

A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro
6:30 PM

The Greater Attleboro Area Suicide Prevention Coalition (GAASPC) is sponsoring "A Kitchen Table Conversation Attleboro". This grief support group is for suicide loss survivors and will be facilitated by Lisa Jo Megna Mitchell.

"Grief comes in many forms. There's no "one size fits all." The Kitchen Table Conversations are coordinated by Safe Place certified facilitators under the auspices of the Bristol County Regional Coalition for Suicide Prevention. This get-together is open to anyone 19 and over who has been impacted by the loss of a loved one/friend/co-worker, etc., who died by suicide.

This is not clinical. It's peer to peer. If you are uncomfortable coming alone - and many are - bring a friend. That's not a problem. The doors are open to anyone in need of grief support."
