Pathfinders plans volunteer reunion

BANGOR – Pathfinders, the bereavement program for children, is planning a reunion to mark the training of more than 100 volunteers to help children and their families express their grief and learn how to handle their losses.

Linda Boyle and Vicki Trundy have trained more than 100 volunteer facilitators in the past 10 years. In addition, an estimated 30 more volunteers were trained during the first few years of the program founded by Maria Brountas and the late Barbara Eames, for a total of 130 volunteers since the program began.

“We decided to pull everyone together to celebrate that remarkable milestone with a Pathfinders Facilitator Reunion,” Trundy said.

The reunion for all the volunteer facilitators who have worked with Pathfinders has been scheduled for 6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 8, at the current site of the program, Redeemer Lutheran Church, 540 Essex St.

“Come as you are for light fare and great company,” said Trundy and Boyle. Those who did not receive a mailed invitation may provide a current address by calling Vicki Trundy at 942-0887 or Linda Boyle at 947-2011.
