Residents invited to Community Conversations with Mayor Nicholls
Series of informal discussions to take place in various Yuma neighborhoods.  Mayor Douglas Nicholls invites residents to Community Conversations with the Mayor, a series of informal dialogues held across various neighborhoods in January through April 2023.

These meetings will rotate to different locations and take place following traditional working hours in an effort to maximize accessibility. Comment cards will be available at the neighborhood meetings for residents who would prefer to ask a question or leave a comment anonymously.

Each event in the series is scheduled for 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. on a Thursday. Locations are as follows:
Jan. 26: Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. Neighborhood Center, 300 S. 13th Ave.

How GriefShare works

It may be hard for you to feel optimistic about the future right now. If you’ve lost a spouse, child, family member, or friend, you’ve probably found there are not many people who understand the deep hurt you feel.

This can be a confusing time when you feel isolated and have many questions about things you’ve never faced before.

This GriefShare group meets weekly Saturday mornings at 10am at First Christian Church to help you face these challenges and move toward rebuilding your life. Each GriefShare session has three distinct elements:

Video seminar with experts, support group discussion with focus, and personal study and reflection.
