How to navigate unexpected family secrets will be discussed 7 p.m. CT, Monday, Aug. 6 at Lifetree Café.

The program, titled “Family Secrets: What Mama never told us,” features the exclusive filmed story—shot live as events unfolded—of a woman who discovered a missing family member.

“I was going through some paperwork at my parents’ house and found an old, faded form from an adoption agency,” the woman said. “That was the first inkling there was some kind of secret to be told here.”

During the program participants will receive practical tips on handling a wide variety of family secrets.

Admission to the 60-minute event is free. Snacks and beverages are available. Lifetree Café is located at 1602 U.S. Highway 98 in Mexico Beach across from El Governor Motel.
