On March 17, Iowa Gov. Kim Reynolds declared a statewide public health disaster emergency in response to the state's coronavirus outbreak. The proclamation includes the restriction of in-person gatherings of 10 or more people along with the temporary closing of several businesses in the arts, culture and entertainment sector.

Most of the public gatherings listed on the Hoopla calendar are canceled or postponed through the end of April. Please check with event organizers to confirm the status of events you see listed.

A virtual option has been created to post and search for those events and programs that are offering an online gathering opportunity for our Hoopla readers. Enjoy!

Event Description

Take time to be with others in grief and engage the creative spark. Jamie Siela, LISW, and Julie Wehner, LMSW, M.Div, BCC, of Unity Point Hospice facilitate this monthly grief support group open to anyone grieving loss through death. On the third Wednesday of each month, we explore a different creative medium at Prairiewoods (120 East Boyson Road in Hiawatha). On Feb. 19, we will do a bright spots activity. Sometimes in cold, winter months we need a little pick me up. We will use our time together to make positivity rocks to place throughout the community. Bring your creative ideas to help brighten the days of others. This support group is offered as a partnership between Prairiewoods and Unity Point Hospice. It is free and includes all art supplies. Registration is required by the previous Friday. For more information or to register, contact Prairiewoods at www.Prairiewoods.org or 319-395-6700.
