  • Written by David B. Clark

Woodinville City Council’s meeting began when Mayor Bernie Talmas announced that he had signed a proclamation on April 17 declaring April 21 Arbor Day.

GriefShare can help

  • Written by Woodinville Weekly Staff
Grief is an emotional journey.
Often, friends and family want to help you following the death of a loved one but don't know how.  That is the reason for GriefShare, a 13 week seminar/support group led by people who have experienced grief and have successfully rebuilt their lives.  They will walk with you on the long path through grief toward healing and hope for the future.  Each weekly session is "self-contained" with a specific topic so you do not have to attend in sequence. You will be able to pick up any sessions you missed in the next 13 week cycle. 
The program is non-denominational and features biblical concepts and advice from well known grief recovery counselors. All are encouraged to attend regardless of religion.  We respect everyone's right to believe what they choose.
Two new 13-week sessions will be starting soon in the area.  Go to to learn more.
