Connections at the Zoo
This event is designed for all ages and relationships. Come share memories of your loved one and make new ones with other families. Workshops will focus on communication, life after loss, and creative ways of remembering your hero.
Brookfield Zoo, 8400 31st Street, Brookfield, Illinois.
Our daylong Connections Events are open to all family and friends of fallen Illinois Service Members. The events feature group workshops, creative arts, a time for connecting with other families and learning about local resources.
Groups and workshops give families a place to discuss the wide range of emotions they experience and how they have dealt with the loss of a loved one. Arts workshops for adults and children help them channel their emotions through creativity. The activities are carefully chosen to aid in the process of finding a new normal.
