Please join PCOA’s End of Life Team for “Keeping Their Memory Alive: Exploring El Dia de los Muertos”, an educational night to learn about Dia de los Muertos. Our guest speakers will look at the cultural and historical background of this day along with ofrendas, the elements commonly found on ofrendas, and why those elements are significant. There will be time for a question-and-answer session so come with any questions you have about Dia de los Muertos. A community ofrenda will be available to add pictures of your loved ones*.
*Please limit photos to 4 x 6 in size so we can accommodate as many photos as possible. Please make sure to put your contact information (name and phone number) on the back of any photos you contribute so we can ensure that it gets returned to you. Items should be contributed by October 31st and will be part of the ofrenda until November 18th. Items will need to be picked up by November 21st.
