Join Conley Outreach on Sunday, May 16, from 1 to 3 p.m. at Serenity Falls in Elburn for this springtime memorial celebration of loved ones. Flowers will be provided; participants are encouraged to bring garden gloves and hand tools. This event is free and family-friendly, but registration is requested. Serenity Falls is located on Main Street, two blocks north of the train tracks. Parking is available in the Conley Funeral Home parking lot at 116 W. Pierce Street.

Friendship Night, a self-help group for grieving adults, will meet Thursday, May 28, from 7 to 9 p.m. at the Great Lakes Leadership Campus, 526 Main St. in Elburn. This month’s topic will be “The Stages of Grief … Will It Ever End?” Light refreshments and a time for informal sharing follow the group discussion.

Mourning After, the free self-help group for young widows and widowers (including all with children still living at home) is on break until next fall.
