Join other adults for Andover's ninth Death Cafe - an evening of open, lively, and insightful discussion about death.

Come with an open mind, a healthy curiosity, and a willingness to share your thoughts, feelings, and questions with other like-minded individuals. Please join us at 6:30pm for socializing and refreshments, followed by a prompt event start at 7:00pm. Hosted by Andover resident, Richard Davis. Seating is limited. Please pre-register at https://mhl.org/calendar. Contact Stefani Traina at firstname.lastname@example.org or 978-623-8451 for further information and/or visit deathcafe.com.
