    Good News!!

    • Cariboo Community Deathcaring Network is now a registered non-profit society in the province of BC under the official title of Cariboo Community Deathcaring Association.
    • We have successfully completed all our conditions of funding received from the Central Cariboo Arts and Culture Society for the Swan Song Festival. 
    • We received $1000 from the CCACS and $500 from the Williams Lake Community Arts Council.  The $500 went directly as $100 honorariums to the artists who contributed to the festival and the $1000 covered our expenses for food, decorations, displays, advertising and art project supplies.  We were left with $100 which we used to pay for our non-profit registration.

    Ideas for the upcoming year:

    • We will be holding virtual death cafes ( over the cold winter months when no one wants to leave the comfort of their homes) via Zoom which is a free meet up space online. Think you might be interested?  It’s easy to join a Zoom meeting.  You can turn your camera on or off as you like. Let us know if this might interest you. Thanks. 
    • A workshop for those who might be interested in learning how to build a simple (and beautiful) pine box to be personally involved in your own inevitable death or if you might want to build a casket for a loved one.
    • Looking into offering willow weaving workshop for creating a willow casket, if we can find a weaver who is interested and knows how to build one of these beauties.
    • Workshop on how to make your own burial shroud and carrier.
    • When Someone We Love is Dying:  A workshop on what we, as family and friends, can and cannot do. The legalities and the possibilities.
    • Natural Burial.  A public presentation on what it is, what it isn’t and what our options are.
    • An All Souls Celebration for next November (see the Vancouver Cemetery’s site for their All Souls Celebration that’s been happening for 15 years)
