Hickory – The death of a parent can be a significant loss, no matter what our age. While Mother’s Day and Father’s Day are usually cause for celebration, they can also bring to the forefront feelings of sadness and longing for beloved parents who are no longer with us.

Please join Carolina Caring for an outdoor event at St. Paul Lutheran Church Mission Property at 3761 Startown Road in Newton on Saturday, June 5, from 10:30 a.m. to noon. Attendees are invited to share a photo or memento of their parents during the event. We invite those who are unable to join in person to register for our Zoom gathering, which will be held on the same date and time.

To register, please visit CarolinaCaring.org/support, contact wspurling@carolinacaring.org or call 828.466.0466, ext. 3201.
