An Autumn Bonfire at Alki Beach Park will be presented by Providence Hospice of Seattle for families who have lost a loved one and asks them to share stories and remember loved ones who have died.

The group will gather at a fire pit east of the Alki Community Center, 5817 SW Stevens St., Seattle. Participants should follow signs that say "Safe Crossings Bonfire."
