Moline Township Activity Center: Events and programs are back! | Special Sections

BONNIE JOHNSON

We had our first Community Easter Egg Hunt for community children ages 8 and under in April. It was a great success, more than 100 children participated. We had a very successful senior resource fair on April 22, we received positive feedback from guests and vendors.

We are starting a bereavement group in May and welcome anyone who could benefit from this event, more information further down the article.

Our VIP (Very Important Person) Dazzle Dance is scheduled for May 24, for children in the K-5 community. There’s a lot going on and boy, is it refreshing to continue with all the events and programs that have been muted over the past two years.

GRIEVING GROUP AT THE MAC

THURSDAY 19 MAY at 10 a.m.

Group led by Kristine Dohrmann, MDIV, MA with ProMedica. Each person’s grief is unique, but you don’t have to grieve alone. Join us on the third Thursday of every month for a safe place to share your experiences and find comfort in sharing with others. We’ve all heard people ask, “Are you done yet?” To think that we as humans “overcome” grief is ridiculous! We never “get over” our grief, but reconcile with it, learning to move on while remembering our loved one.
