Tim Grimm in Concert

Singer, Songwriter, Actor Tim Grimm and his wife Jan will revisit the Nature Center with another concert, "The Land, The People" Songs and stories about the land and people who live close to it.

The land itself, if you are paying attention, is abundant with gifts worth writing and singing about. People who choose to live apart, away from the hustle and bustle, are great subjects for story and song. Tim Grimm and his wife Jan Lucas-Grimm moved from Los Angeles to an 80 acre farm in south central Indiana 19 years ago to raise their three boys and have never looked back. They have presented evenings of music and stories before to Navarino audiences, and we are excited to welcome him and his wife back.

Hospice Foundation of America: The Longest Loss- Alzheimer's Disease and Dementia

When the diagnosis is Alzheimer’s disease or other dementia, grief doesn’t wait for death. Grieving can begin in the doctor’s office when patients and families receive confirmation of illness. Over a span of what may be a decade, multiple losses associated with Alzheimer’s disease or dementia become a pervasive part of everyday life for millions of patients, their families and friends. After the death, survivors’ grief may be complicated by the nature of a lengthy disease process that has changed their relationship with the deceased. Through a combination of candid, compelling interviews and live, in-studio discussion, experts will identify how medical and social service professionals can best help patients, families and themselves cope with loss and grief associated with these progressive illnesses. Program is FREE to attend, 3 CE credits available for $15. To register call Wichmann Funeral Homes at 920-831-9905. Wednesday, April 29, 2015, 9:00 AM – 12:30 PM.
