"Embracing Mortality" course to be offered at Portage Library

HOUGHTON -- "Embracing Mortality," a five-week course exploring end-of-life options available here in the Copper Country starts at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 18, at Portage Lake District Library.

Participants can expect a supportive atmosphere, group discussions, and group speakers that include a physician, Hospice nurse and funeral directors. The classes are sponsored by the Community Coalition of Grief and Bereavement. Class size is limited to 25 people, but the course will not be offered unless 15 people register.

"Facing the enormity of the term limits we all live with need not be frightening or morbid," says instructor Carolyn Peterson. "In fact, we laugh a lot in this course! A major goal of the course is to add joy and meaning to whatever time we have left to live."

To obtain more information and to pre-register, contact instructor Peterson at 482-4696 or email
