Bus Trips- Bus trips are taken Bi-annually, one in the spring and one in the fall.  The Ramblin Roses bus tours provide camraderie for community members who want the oppurtunity to socialize and travel to an "interesting destination" where their everyday paths may not lead them.
 
Handling the Holidays- This is a one-night Support Group held in the Geo. M. Wittich-Lewis Community Room.  During this session we discuss ways to cope with the upcoming holiday season after the loss of a loved one. 
 
Candlelighting Remembrance Services- Christmas is a time to remember loved ones.  As some face this holiday after the death of a loved one, it is difficult to know how to express the love that still exists for that significant person who has been a part of their lives.  Our Remembrance Service is offered to reinforce the love and memories you have of your loved one.  
 
MMP Tree Lighting Service- This service gives a time for families to dedicate an ornament to thier loved one that will be hung on the Memorial Park Tree throughout the holiday season.
 
Grief Support Groups-  These groups provide a time for family members to share their loss with others and learn ways to travel through their grief process.  Most of our groups are done with the help of Iowa City Hospice and are usually held twice a year.
 
The Compassionate Friends Support Group- The Compassionate Friends is a non-profit self help organization offering friendship and support to families who have experienced the death of a child. The mission of The Compassionate Friends is to assist families in the positive resolution of grief following the death of a child and to provide information to help others be supportive.
