Cremation: History and Modern Process
March 16, 2017, 5:00pm–6:30pm
An event every 2 months that begins at 5:00pm on day Third of the month, repeating until May 19, 2017
What is cremation? How long have we been doing it, and how does it work? Amy Cunningham, death educator, leads this presentation of cremation’s history and its impact on present-day and future funerals. This engaging and sometimes even light-hearted exploration will also touch on how to choose an end-of-life mode of disposition that expresses your own beliefs and values.
Afterward, you will have the opportunity to visit the crematory with Gema LaBoccetta, Green-Wood’s Crematory Manager, then chat with Amy and other attendees at a short reception.
Free to attend, RSVP recommended. Please register using the Eventbrite box below.
