November 1, “LIFE AND DEATH MATTERS – START THE CONVERSATION” SEMINAR. United Presbyterian Church, 302 W. Stephenson Street, Freeport. 8:30 am to 12:30 pm. The community is invited to attend this important seminar. We often neglect to make plans for what we will want at the end of our lives. How will we want to be treated? Who will make decisions if we are no longer able? It is so much better to talk about these things when we are doing well. The seminar will provide helpful information from local professionals who will speak on medical considerations, legal matters, hospice information and issues of values and beliefs that define our decisions. Pre-registration is appreciated. $5. (815-235-3159)
