February 2020 Events

Always In My Heart

Feb 14, 2020 11:30 AM to Feb 14, 2020 01:00 PM

The thought of celebrating (or not celebrating) Valentine’s Day after

losing a loved one can be overwhelming. For those touched by the loss

of a spouse, partner, or significant other, we invite you to join us this

Valentine’s Day to share a meal, beautiful music, and fellowship with

others who are learning to redefine the meaning of the holiday after

losing the special person they once celebrated with.


This FREE event, hosted by the Butler Family of Organizations, was

specifically designed for those who have, at some point, experienced

the loss of a special Valentine. The afternoon will include an Italian

lunch buffet, beautiful piano music by Ed Clark, bingo games, door

prizes, and a special treat to take home and enjoy.


March 2020 Events

Peace of Mind Seminar - The Importance of Advance Planning

Mar 19, 2020 11:30 AM to Mar 19, 2020 01:30 PM

We invite you to learn more about how planning for your final wishes can help your family celebrate your life, begin the healing process, and avoid unnecessary emotional and financial burdens.


Join us for lunch and learn more about advance planning, veteran benefits, cremation, burials, and more.


Losing a loved one is a difficult process which can be made even more challenging when numerous decisions must be made. This seminar helps illustrate the peace of mind and preparedness that comes when final wishes are planned and recorded in advance.


Attendees are presented with the primary reasons for preplanning and real life examples of those who have gone through a loss with and without the benefit of preplanning.

Mother’s Day is a special day that we pay tribute to our mothers, grandmothers, wives, children, or other loved ones that have touched our hearts and lives.


We would like to invite you and your family to join us for a memorial tribute service honoring all mothers and the important roles they have played in our lives. This brief ceremony will be open to the public and led by our on-staff Certified Celebrant, Judy Woerner. Refreshments will be served and a special tribute keepsake will be given in honor of your loved one.


We sincerely hope that you and your family can join us for this tender reflection on the importance of the special women in our lives that we have lost, but will never forget.
