Survivor Day is the one day a year when people affected by suicide loss gather around the world at events in their local communities to find comfort and gain understanding as they share stories of healing and hope.

On Saturday, November 17, 2018, loss survivors will gather around the globe in small and large events while growing together in their grief journey.

We will watch a film of a survivor, have brunch, group discussion and a memorial activity. Please register here through the site below.   https://afsp.org/survivor_day/montrose-colorado, Contact Melissa Gomez with any questions: 1-928-640-1106

Come and join the fun at Oak Grove School (62100 Oak Grove Road in Montrose) for the annual TURKEY TROT on Thanksgiving, Nov. 22nd. Registration starts at 8:00 and the two events start at 9:00. A percentage of the proceeds will go to the Oak Grove Elementary Playground Improvement fund for the much needed upgrading of their playground. As always, we have a 4.2-mile loop and a 2-mile out and back. Both events encourage children of all ages, strollers, well-behaved leashed dogs, and even Aunt Mildred! And the price is right: $5/person, $15/family.
