Circle of Love Fall Book Sale Almost Here

Fall into a great book this October. Be transported to the Wild West, a WWII battlefield or some other place and time. There are so many benefits to reading and the Circle of Love sale is the perfect place to pick up any genre of reading material that interests you. The event will take place on Friday, October 12th from 9 AM to 7 PM and Saturday, October 13th from 9 AM to 5 PM at 314 S. Third in Enid. There are plenty of mysteries, westerns, children’s books, history and war books, religious works, religious fiction and cookbooks. In addition, there will be audio books, puzzles and CDs.

There will be thousands of book titles to choose from. Hardbacks are $1.00 and paperbacks are just $.50. Baked goods will be available by donation. Customers can also enjoy a free cup of coffee while they browse and will receive a free bookmark with purchase.

Proceeds from the sale will help Circle of Love serve patients without a Medicare or insurance benefit for hospice. The not-for-profit never charges patients or families for their services. Hospice Circle of Love is celebrating 35 years serving Northwest Oklahoma in 2018.




Group Scheduled To Help the Grieving

Hospice Circle of Love’s Bereavement team is hosting a grief group open to the community the first 4 Tuesday nights in October.  Meetings will take place from 5:00 to 6:00 PM at the Hospice Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third, in Enid. 

The grief group is free and open to anyone 18 and over who is dealing with the death of a loved one.  Each of the sessions will focus on different aspects of the grieving process.  By meeting in a group participants can connect with others who are going through a similar situation. 

Those who would like to sign up for the grief group can call Bereavement Coordinator Dr. Matt Miles or Chaplain Gary Miller at 580-234-2273.




Hospice Circle of Love Seeking Volunteers

Hospice Circle of Love is seeking volunteers to provide comfort and compassion to hospice patients, help out in the office and lend a hand with fundraisers.
 
A volunteer training class has been scheduled for the first two Thursdays in February.  It will take place February 1st and February 8th from 9 to Noon at the Circle of Love office, 314 S. Third. Volunteer recruits need to attend both sessions.

“Our volunteers make a significant contribution to our operation. We are so grateful for all that they do, as are our hospice families. Whether they are reading to a patient in the nursing home or visiting with one in the home while their caregiver runs errands, they provide an invaluable service,” commented Volunteer Coordinator Julie Nelson.

All hospice volunteers are required to go through a training class. Areas covered include details about job duties, the history of hospice, privacy rights, family dynamics, infection control, psychological issues surrounding death and dying, physical symptoms and more.

To obtain a volunteer application, call 234-2273.
