    Tuesday, May 28th- Your Life Your Legacy ~ Funeral Planning & Information Informational Seminar by Church & Allen and Labenski Funeral Homes & Dignity Memorial

    Time- 10:00am

    Planning for life’s big events – weddings, graduations, retirement – is something most of us do automatically.  Unfortunately, many of us put off – or don’t even think about – planning for funeral and cemetery arrangements.  Yet this is one of the greatest gifts you can give your family, and it provides you with peace of mind.

    While thinking about death and discussing mortality may be uncomfortable, setting aside a little time now will help relieve your family of having to make important decisions during a period of great stress and grief.  Attend this presentation to find out why it is important to plan and how to start the process.  A little preparation can make a huge emotional and financial difference for the future.

    Please sign up at Reception if you will be attending.
