Pre-Planning Workshop

Pre-planning Workshop

April 3rd at 3pm   

Historic Congressional Cemetery

The workshop will begin with light refreshments as Jamie Arthurs, Preplanning Supervisor for Joseph Gawler’s Sons LLC and the Dignity Memorial Network, guides us through the four simple steps to planning in advance for this life event:

 ·         Reflecting – starting to have the conversation with yourself and your loved ones on what you would like to have done at your funeral or cremation service

·         Recording – learning how to properly document your affairs in order to have your wishes handled after your death

·         Supporting – learn about how prepaid arrangements are funded and how your money is protected

·         Share – learn best practices on ways to share these decisions with your loved ones

 Margaret Puglisi, Vice-President of Historic Congressional Cemetery, will discuss aspects to consider when selecting a final resting place and planning a memorial service.  There will be time for attendees to ask questions at the end of the workshop, followed by an optional tour of Congressional Cemetery’s notables.

Please come to learn how planning now for this final life event will take the emotional and financial stress off your family.

There is limited seating, so please sign-up by emailing
