Death Cafe will return

Nelson’s second installment of the Death Cafe will take place on Tuesday, January 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Nelson’s second installment of the Death Cafe will take place on Tuesday, January 21 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Organizers have secured the Vienna Cafe (across the street from the Kootenay Coop Store) to host this event. In the Vienna, there is room for 40 people sitting around at tables in small groups of four or five.

The idea of the Death Cafe is to have small group discussions with death related themes, that have been submitted by the many responses received. Then those topics will be presented for discussion to the whole group.

Other ideas will be introduced in the second half of the evening, including “life and being alive.”

Coffee and tea will be served by Vienna staff, at participants expense, and cake and sweets are requested for the pubic to bring along (pot luck style).

Organizers have also been asking for a $5 donation to cover costs and any money collected beyond costs will be donated to a charity, chosen at the end of the meeting by participants.

Live music will also be played during the intermission.

There is a possibility of more than 40 people attending, so attendance will be limited.

Mark your new 2014 calendar for Tuesday, January 21 for Nelson’s second Death Cafe at The Vienna Cafe.
