Celebrating Jim Newburn's Life

Come to one event, come to them all! Choices.

November 18th is the day to put on your calendar

We're having three distinct memorial events on November 18th ... and you're invited to them all, though we suspect most people will pick just one or two events to attend.

The day starts with honoring our father's love of the metaphysical, the universe beyond the universe and his incorporation of healers and energy workers in how he lived his life. We'll have a quantum healing session with Nichole Kelly, who worked with our father in the last few months of his life.

Shortly afterward, we'll have a more classic memorial with words from the family, music our father loved, a great photo show of pictures from the span of his life and food!

We'll close the evening with a family-sponsored contra dance that's free to attend and open for anyone of any dance experience to join in, either to watch or to jump in and dance.
