Senior centers host ‘Life Celebration’ talk
CENTREVILLE — Have you ever wondered why funeral and memorial ser vices seem to concentrate on the last days of one’s life rather than the enjoyable times that you remember?
“Creating a Life Celebration” will introduce the latest trends in the world of an undertaker, that of a Life Celebration. Ryan Helfenbein of Lasting Tributes Funeral Care will discuss this one-of-a-kind ceremony for family and friends to come together in a casual setting with food, music and memorabilia and share in the joyful times of a life well lived. This modern way of saying goodbye is growing in popularity.
The following topics will be discussed: How can one go about creating a Life Celebration? Can religious elements be tied into this type of ceremony? What can be included in my Life Celebration? Does this cost my family more or less than a traditional service? Is my family able to have this with an open casket visitation? Can I plan for a Life Celebration in advance?
This free presentation will take place at 9:30 a.m. May 11 at Sudlersville Senior Center, 605 Foxxtown Dr., Sudlersville, and at 12:30 p.m. June 16 at Kent Island Senior Center, 891 Love Point Road, Stevensville.
Register in advance by calling the Kent Island Senior Center at 410-604-3801 or the Sudlersville Senior Center at 410-438-3159.
