Coffee and cake will be served up alongside thought-provoking discussion this Saturday, Jan. 12, when the Death Café opens its doors at Newport 60+ Activity Center.

“At a Death Café people, often strangers, gather to eat cake, drink tea and discuss death,” said facilitator Barbara Bush. “Our objective is to increase awareness of death with a view to helping people make the most of their (finite) lives.”

A discussion group rather than a grief support or counseling session, Death Cafés are offered in a respectful and confidential space, with no intention of leading people to any conclusion, product or course of action.

Saturday’s Death Café will run from 1 to 3 pm at the Newport 60+ Activity Center, located at 20 SE 2nd Street.

To register, call 541-265-9617.
