NESEPELEM-This weekend, Nespelem Community Center will host a Celebration of life and healing ceremony.
In light of recent deaths within the community, concerned individuals formed a committee and met May 19, to discuss plans for a healing event. Members decided on a two-day event, which is set to begin Friday, May 29 at 5p.m. with a sweat lodge prayer.
The event continues Saturday at noon with a meal, followed by sharing and discussions concerning the grief and loss process. Saturday evening includes a 5 p.m. potluck dinner followed by more healing and support activities.
All prayer denominations are welcome to attend the event.
For more information about the event, contact Nespelem Community Center director Dan Nanamkin by phone at 634-2370 or through email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
