Wake Up To Dying

Have you heard of the "Wake Up to Dying" project?  One of our volunteers sent in a newspaper clipping describing an exhibit and four-day series of workshops running June 25-28 in Brattleboro, VT, inside the River Garden on Main Street.

"It's Your Funeral - Do It Your Way" is the title of a session Saturday June 27, 1:30- 3pm.  "Come learn about the wide variety of choices for funeral and memorial rituals, body disposition, and burial. Explore after-death planning documents, and begin to ponder how to design this experience for a loved one, or for yourself.  Panelists: 

  • Krista Marshall – Home Funeral Guide, Evening Star
  • Josh Slocum – Executive Director, Funeral Consumers Alliance
  • Lee Webster – Director, New Hampshire Funeral Resources; President, National Home Funeral Alliance; Board Member, Green Burial Council"
