Who: Rick Clayton, Southern Care Hospice Chaplain

Additional Information: Loss changes our world and our relationships with others. It can leave us feeling uprooted, broken open, ungrounded (free-falling) and sometimes alienated. Facilitator Rick Clayton (Southern Care Hospice Chaplain) provides a safe space for grievers to share, grow, and move through the many layers of emotion when dealing with loss. Research shows that the experience of loss can open the realm of imagination as symbols and meaning begin to emerge. Rick's positive approach incorporates the arts (music, visuals, writing, etc) to help express and heal grief. Poet, R.S. Thomas described this process as "that which arrives at the intellect by way of the heart."

About the Facilitator:

Rick Clayton, Southern Care Hospice Chaplain (Masters from Christian Theological Seminary) encourages people to approach the grieving process with an optimistic approach and helps them to express their thoughts through multiple outlets, including the expressive arts. He conducts support groups in multiple counties and settings. Sponsored by IN Southern Care Hospice, and the Endwright Center (a program of Area 10 Agency on Aging)

About: Beginning this summer, Area 10 Agency on Aging will host the Ellettsville Farmers Market every Saturday, 8 a.m. to noon (June 7 through September 27).
Area 10 is thrilled to provide a place for local farmers and neighbors to meet and connect in an easily accessible convenient location. Children will learn more about
where their food comes from and families can purchase fresh, local produce and other farm produced goods. Area 10 is located at 631 W. Edgewood Dr. in Ellettsville next to Edgewood Jr. High School.

During market season, the Endwright Center's hours will be extended to include Saturday mornings (8 am-noon). Patrons will have access to facilities and can come inside
to cool off on a hot summer day or participate in scheduled classes and programs. Endwright Center members (only) will have access to the fitness equipment. Everyone is
invited to stop at the Area 10 information table to learn about the wonderful services the agency provides to seniors, people with disabilities, their families and caregivers.

At the end of each market day, vendors are encouraged to donate unsold produce to the area 10 food pantry. Our food pantry provides over 500 bags
of groceries each month to homebound seniors. Vendors may also compost excess produce scraps in the Area 10 Mustang Garden, a small teaching garden which also provides produce for the food pantry.
We encourage anyone interested in becoming a vendor, reserving an information table, serving as a volunteer, sponsor or supporter of the Ellettsville Farmers Market to contact us soon.
The application deadline to reserve a vendor spot for the entire market season is May 2.
