Event to explore satisfying life
How to experience a full and satisfying life will be explored at 7:30 p.m. Tuesday at Lifetree Cafe, 1110 Campus Drive, Suite C.
The program, "How To Live Before You Die: Embracing Life To The Fullest," features an exclusive filmed interview with Sasha Vukelja, who as a young girl escaped from communist Yugoslavia and emigrated to the United States.
Vukelja, now an oncologist, tells how she works with patients facing an uncertain future to find hope and a positive attitude.
"We can all use a dose of encouragement," said Lifetree representative Craig Cable. "This program provides practical tips for having a happy, fulfilled life."
Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages will be available.
Lifetree Cafe is a place where people gather for conversation about life and faith in a casual coffeehouse-type setting.
Questions about Lifetree may be directed to Cable at (970) 292-4697 or email@example.com.
