    On March 30th, The Joseph T. Quinlan Bereavement Center held its Open House/Grand Opening at 61 Spring Street in Newton. The bereavement center partnered with the Sussex County Arts and Heritage Council for this event, creating a butterfly-themed art exhibit and silent auction. Many artists donated their personal butterfly creations to help make this a successful evening and we are so grateful for their generosity. We also wanted to thank our neighbors who donated items for the silent auction as well: Dairy Queen of Newton, Hampton Diner, Pastor Kem Monk of the Harmony Hill United Methodist Church, Lisa Hodgins of High Point Regional High School, Eaton’s Estate, D. Becker Photos, Adiel Company, Weis of Newton, Cheddar Alley and John’s Barber Shop. We thank you all for your warm welcome into the neighborhood, for your support, your thoughtfulness and your generosity. There were over 100 people from the community, the Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice and professionals in the county who came out to support the bereavement center and to see firsthand the many services that are offered, enjoy the art exhibit, bid in the silent auction, listen to music, enjoy refreshments and visit with fellow neighbors. We feel truly blessed to be a part of this community and to be able to expand and offer our bereavement services to our hospice families and the community at large.
